About The Teacher
Perry Yung studied shakuhachi making and playing in Japan, with support from the Japan-US Friendship Commission, National Endowment for the Arts and the International House in Tokyo. He traveled throughout Japan meeting with both Zen and modern shakuhachi makers and master players. He studied primarily with Kinya Sogawa in Japan, among many others, and continues to study with Ralph Samuelson in New York. It is a privilege and honor for him to be sharing shakuhachi with students here in America.
