Shakuhachi: Japanese Bamboo Flute
by Masayuki Koga
__________One of the Best TeachingGuides
for Learning to Play ShakuhachiBook/CD Set - 152 pages - Brand New


Thisbook/cd edition by Mr. Kogais excellentforbeginners and intermediate players dedicated to the art of shakuhachi.Thisteaching book is capable of advancingone quite far in the evolution oftheirshakuhachi practice. The bookis well worth the money spent, asthe teachings will remain useful, relevantand inspirationalfor a long time in one's practice and will not be easily outgrown. Koga'sbook starts out very basic for the beginner,and evolves naturallyinto more advanced teaching; again,making this an excellent book for beginners, intermediate, and possibly somewhatadvanced players as well.

Theabsolute joy ofthis book/cd set is thatMasayuki Koga plays the pieces given in the book.He starts with very simple exercises for the beginner, then moves on to more advanced pieces. Hearing his timing, styleand tonality, and learning to play along with him,is an invaluable way to learn. It is like having a teacher in your home with you. Koga is an absolutely amazing player andlistening to him is literallya direct transmission in itself!

In Koga's words from the Preface:

"The Shakuhachi is one of the most difficult instruments to play. As the teaching of this skill is one of the oral traditions of Japanese culture, there is little text for the student to refer to. Therefore, I have attempted to compose a practical book for teachers and students. The first part of this manuscript is for the beginner. The second is for the advanced student. The third part contains a short history of the shakuhachi, including a comparision with other relevant musical histories."


The book has three parts: I. Fundamental Techniques, II. Advanced Techniques,
III. History

Here are some of the contents of this book/cd set:

Part I: Tongue position, Teeth position, Jaw position, Posture, Fingers and Hands, Basic Five Notes and Fingering,Low and High Register, Tempo Notation, Meri and KariPart II: Pitch, Scale, Rhythm, Dynamics, Atari, Application of Advanced Techniques, Double Trill, Microtones, Intensive Breath, Fingering Chart, Names of the Fingering.Part III: Classical Music / Honkyoku, Phrase Structure, List of Principle Honkyoku, Historical Documentation, Microtones, and Original Shakuhachi Overtones.

There is alsomuch more than I have listed here.
