Shakuhachi Lessons

Doherty, Michael Andrew

I am now offering lessons to beginning and intermediate shakuhachi players, and those wanting to learn my compositions, from my cottage in Palmer Lake Colorado, convenient to both the Denver and Colorado Springs areas, and via Skype.

Beginning lesson is free of charge, then start at $40/hr for beginning players.  Shakuhachi are available for rent or purchase from me, if you are in need of a flute.

Please inquire for additional rates and availability.

Why study with me? I am an independent shakuhachi teacher, not affiliated with any one school or lineage, though heavily versed in Watazumi/Yokoyama techniques and pieces. I have spent my 12 years of playing focussed on learning techniques, performance repertoire, shakuhachi making and composition. And can offer instruction in all of the above. Because I am independent, I can perhaps offer you unique perspectives in making shakuhachi your own.
