Contact me at email@example.com for a free one-on-one shakuhachi lesson over video chat
Teaching is my primary focus with the shakuhachi. Helping someone to get their first sound and seeing their joy is a wonderful experience. I guide my students every step of the way on their journey. The shakuhachi is an instrument of many mysteries which I strive to convey in a clear and open way. As an experienced craftsperson I also share insights into the instruments themselves. It’s my privilege to pass down the honkyoku to my students which are the most revered pieces for shakuhachi. You can contact me with any questions you may have and I’ll be happy to help you. Enjoy, Jon~

My book Your Shakuhachi Journey has also helped many people with learning how to play. You can find my free guides here too which I’ve written on a number of topics.
My mini bio
I started making bamboo flutes in my teenage years and they’re the first musical instruments that I took up. At age nineteen in 2006 I was fortunate enough to be able to move to New York City to study the shakuhachi full-time under Ronnie Nyogetsu Reishin Seldin and Kurahashi Yodo II. In 2009, after years of intense lessons in the Jin Nyodo style, I decided to learn more honkyoku from Justin Senryu Williams. You can read my full bio here.
