Re: I'm looking for a teacher in............

Tennessee. I'm in Nashville and looking forward to the Akikazu Nakamura and koto performance tomorrow(Feb.15) at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, TN. I've asked around and nobody knows of any other players or enthusiasts in the area. I've never seen a pro player before. Man, I feel so fortunate. I've been learning by ear and some cd correspondence for 2&1/2 years now and I really need a teacher. I have the feeling I'll be moving to someplace that has a teacher(s). You guys have set up a great forum! Thanks, Kerry......cool

Kerry,
  I teach in Columbus, Ohio and have several students in Cicinnati who come once a month. I'll also be in Cincy April 22/23 at the Cincy museum of Art Festival and be around that weekend for lessons. Let me know if you are interested and I'll send you details. You can email me directly.

I'm a novice in western Montana; had one lesson in Seattle, did a world of good, but don't get to Seattle much. I would appreciate any competent teacher traveling through the region to email  and we could arrange a lesson in Missoula or Kalispell.   Thanks, John Stromnes in Polson

I don't know if this info is still current--might be, though, and worth a try.

Hi is there anyone North of Kiku in England?
I'm in Leeds, West Yorkshire. Interested in occasional lessons ('Cos I can't afford more), or even just getting together with other players, I've still only ever seen the one flute!
Cheers

Re: I'm looking for a teacher in............

Hi Everybody,

I would recommend that everyone find a teacher in person (if at all possible). Face-to-Face lessons are definitely the best way to learn Shakuhachi!

However, this posting is meant for those of you who are not near (or not able to get to) a Shakuhachi Teacher. For the past 28 years (of my 34 years of teaching) , I have been teaching students "remotely". Up until a few years ago, this was done entirely through cassettes. Now, more and more students are doing a new, perfected "through the computer" method.

While I do have a web-cam and iChat connectivity possibilities, I find that the sound is not as good as my computer ( or older-cassette) method. At present I have about 28 "remote" students in 26 states and 6 foreign countries. They are all doing the cassette or computer method.

This is the way I do Cassette or “Computer” Lessons:

1-You would send me a check (either $65- for one lesson, or $200- for 4 lessons in advance, thus getting one free lesson...There is no time-limit on taking the 4 lessons), and I would send you back your first lesson with a book of notation (all notation included in the lesson price). Most cassette/computer “students” have decided to do “double-lessons”. That is certainly an option as well, but not advisable for your first few lessons.

2-When you were ready (not when you felt that you really "mastered" the first lesson, as that may take quite a while!!) you would send me your version of the first lesson. The site that explains how to work with me via computer lessons is: <http://tinyurl.com/oksu2>

But if you have trouble understanding it, contact my student Tim Larkin <tsl1@cornell.edu> and he will walk you through it. He is very kind, and will patiently "walk you through" the steps, including more information on how we down-load the free recording device as well as help you with any problems you may have. .. My reply (in the case of either via cassette or computer) would consist of a "critique" as well as a new lesson...Thus lesson two is completed, and so on...

By the way, if you are ever in any of the places that I teach in person (New York City, Philadelphia, Syracuse, Baltimore, Rochester, etc....Or any of the Monasteries that I do intensive weekends at, or my annual teaching trips to Mexico, or Japan, etc.), the price is the same for a face-to-face lesson as well as a cassette-lesson.

Looking forward to hearing from you….

Hi.

Dear Nyogetsu et al,

Is it possible to provide formal grading through "remote" tuition/ assessment?

Regards,

Harry.
