ASS Monthly Beginner’s Workshop, October 18th 2020

The Australian Shakuhachi Society invites you to monthly ASS Beginner’s Workshops to experience the art and sound of the Shakuhachi – the Japanese bamboo flute.

These workshops are perfect if you are completely new to the shakuhachi, or have only been playing a short time (less than one year). You will learn how to play the basic notes, how to read the musical scores, and even learn part of a traditional piece of honkyoku music. All you need to get started is a 1.8 shakuhachi.

The workshop is live-streamed with multi-cam view using Zoom ( Not only can you see the group, but you can also get a close-up on the instructor’s instrument for a clear view of fingerings and embouchure. If you’re far from a teacher, want to participate in regular workshops, or simply want to connect with other shakuhachi players, sign up! Log on details for the live stream will be provided upon registration.

Beginners also have the option of participating in the Katsuya Yokoyama Shugyōjō Workshop. For $80, you may attend both workshops.
