Jon Kypros - shakuhachi teacher and maker
Welcome to my website. My wish is to help you to play and enjoy the shakuhachi. I teach shakuhachi lessons both in-person and online to people all over the world using video chat. Here you will find a wealth of free shakuhachi instructional materials in the "Dojo" such as my video, "how to play shakuhachi". I also offer my handcrafted shakuhachi for sale. I hope you will find what you want or need to know about shakuhachi. I welcome you to contact me for help.
I teach shakuhachi music known as "honkyoku" which were mostly composed by anonymous komuso monks during Edo period Japan. I also hand craft my shakuhachi for the playing of these honkyoku. I am pioneering the use of Japanese madake bamboo growing in America which I harvest myself. You can contact me to talk more about shakuhachi via email, phone or skype. My email is email@example.com phone: 757 588 3862 and skype is flutedojo. I also use google hangouts. I look forward to hearing from you!
