New Interview on Katsuya Yokoyama and Shakuhachi with Marco Lienhard on Youtube


 During the Pandemic, we are offering programs and lessons online and on Udemy - We have four Shakuhachi courses

you can learn Honkyoku - check out the Shinobue/ Fue courses as well.

 We have our new CD that's is available now- here.

                        During this very difficult time in our lives, I want to share some ethereal music to help lift everyone’s spirits.  

I chose these songs as a form of prayer to bring you some inner peace and hope.  

 We have lessons online available (Skype, Zoom, Facetime, etc.) and music is available for purchase as downloads.
