SCHEDULE: June 23 - 26, 2016, The Craft of Pure Sound - shakuhachi making and playing workshop with San Francisco Zen Center at Tassahara, Carmel, CA.

Hi, I’m Perry Yung. Welcome! I first discovered the shakuhachi flute while performing in New York City as an actor in Ellen Stewart’s Oedipus the King. Night after night, the subtle sound grew to become all encompassing. Soon, I started making the flute as it was impossible to buy a shakuhachi in the pre-internet days of 1994. Time passed and eight years later got a grant to live in Japan to study traditionally with some of the best makers and players in the world. The shakuhachi changed my life in ways that words can not describe. My goal is to help you with a flute that can open that door as it is a beautiful world on the other side. Come on in!
Those interested in my acting work (TV, film and stage) can see what I’m up to at my actors blog.  -
