Re: Teachers on the West Coast USA


I run The Bay Area Shakuhachi School,  located in Oakland, California. Private lessons are available Tuesdays, Wednedays, Thursdays and saturdays and group classes are available on Saturdays.   Monthly sankyoku classes with guest shamisen player/teacher, Philip Flavin are also available.

Although i am known for performing modern music, as a teacher, i emphasize  traditional techniques and repetoire as well as modern styles.

Started playing shakuhachi in 1990, after playing guitar since i was 9 years old (i no longer play guitar) and have quite a bit of experience performing and teaching and i greatly enjoy teaching  other enthusiasts of this wonderful instrument!
More information is available on my new website,
