One shakuhachi, one breath, one sound
Welcome, I’m a shakuhachi teacher and professional crafts-person of natural bamboo jinashi shakuhachi. I’m the creator and maker of the Bell shakuhachi and the author of Your Shakuhachi Journey. I also share my knowledge in the guides section of this site and on youtube. As for music, I focus on honkyoku which are the Zen pieces of the Komuso monks. People also seek my guidance on how to use the shakuhachi for meditation or for making their own music. As a result, I’ve helped students from all walks of life and age groups. It’s a joy to help others on this Také no Michi or “bamboo path”.
Want to take a free lesson? I invite you to try a live, one-on-one lesson with me – email@example.com

My YouTube video on how to play
In the above video I attempt to teach some of the very basics of how to play. Of course, more in-depth instruction is possible in live lessons.
You can also find a wealth of information in the guides section. I’ve written in-depth guides on some of the most requested topics. For example, I answer questions like, “What are the differences between jinashi and jiari shakuhachi?“, and many more. Lastly, I hope to continue to create many more free instructional videos. For instance, my latest series is on how to make a shakuhachi, from harvesting bamboo and eventually every stage of flute making.
