It was the first lesson in Paris this year.

A pupil bought a new flute in Japan, the shinobue in G (3 bon cho-shi) , lower sound :-) Another pupil will try a traditional classical piece with koto and a contemporary work ...

All pupils are motivated to learn and some will come to participate in events outside Paris ... See this musical evolution and their motivation of their parts make me happy.

This instrument is played a lot in Japan but we rarely hear in Europe. It is also less known than the shakuhachi or the koto here but in Japan this bamboo flute was always admired and the sound of this flute was always considered sometime festive, sometime mysterious, and sometime a little sadness with melancholy etc ....Actually this flute is very emotional. 


I find that even melodies are often simpler than those in flute methods, playing with shinobue is somehow more difficult for some technique because the instrument is very simple. You have to have more flexibility than playing the flute.

In those simple melodies, you can find many different nuances than Western music and this research is always interesting.


Here you will hear a simple religious melody.
