A hundred honkyoku traversed
Atop a solitary
Jon has taught shakuhachi lessons to countless students from around the world. Moving forward, Jon plans to offer a growing number of comprehensive online shakuhachi courses, such as the free beginner’s shakuhachi course below.
Courses are the skeleton, the structure. Live lessons are the heart
Jon provides the most thorough distance learning experience he can by combining his courses with live lessons and mp3 or video assessments. Each of these methods has its own advantages and they complement one another for a more holistic experience.
Free Beginner’s Shakuhachi Course (more courses to come)
