Welcome to the website of Michael Chikuzen Gould, master Shakuhachi performer and teacher.
My studio offers a variety of services:
- I teach shakuhachi in a variety of forms (webcam, camps, home studio, and B&B intensives.) Students also have the opportunity to obtain a teaching license. (See some of my student testimonials and profiles.)
- I perform in concerts and give lecture demonstrations at various levels. (See some of my reviews.)
- I have recorded several CDs and written/co-authored several scorebooks. My most recent CD is Monshogodo with Sebastien Gishin Cyr.
- I have a blog where I post some of my insights. (Here's a brief background about the shakuhachi.)
Feel free to contact me for further information.
