I'm happy to announce that I am able to be in Germany and Italy in June offering two camps and private lessons. Each camp will be two days long: sat. & sun. All levels and people from all schools of shakuhachi are welcome. We will definitely be studying honkyoku and spending much time on how to produce the variety of sounds needed for Watazumi/Yokoyama style playing. I am open to requests if you have certain songs you would like to learn. We can study Minyo and modern pieces as well. I will not be spending time on sankyoku this trip. Camp fee is 300 Euros per person. Please check below for more details. For more information and registration, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will have details concerning accomodations, etc.
