How To Play Classical Shakuhachi Book 1
This book is co-authored by Yoshinobu Taniguchi and Michael Gould. It was created with the intention of its becoming a technical manual for use in the classroom (or dojo) for studying Classical Shakuhachi under the guidance of a master/teacher. The book is published by Tai Hei Shakuhachi.
I feel very honored to be able to pick the brain of such a master player. The lessons are always inspirational. I feel that my association with Michael has improved my playing and my understanding of the shakuhachi.
I have spent many hours practicing and taking lessons with Michael, under whose masterful tutelage I have been lucky enough to learn. In playing I hope to convey some of the joy and the wonder that I feel everytime I pick up the shakuhachi and think back on how it is that I got to be where I am.
