[Synopsis by Author]

This new Method to learn the Shinobue was put together through the years. There was a great demand of a book in English and at workshops I would teach, I would always be asked about books on the Shinobue. There are a few in Japanese but nothing seemed to have been translated. I decided to write this book with the advice from fellow flute players teachers . I wanted to created something that would help players at different levels of their study. From beginners to advanced I think you will something to work on or learn. I have included several folk songs as well as original songs that I have composed. I hope that you will enjoy learning from it.

I will within this year 2018 record the songs for those who are having difficulty reading the music or visualizing the song- it will also give you an idea on how it is supposed to be played. There is a link in the book and you can always check

Some of the original songs at the end of the book ha e been recorded and we available through iTunes or 

They are included in Taikoza cd or Marco Lienhard CD
