 Hello, I'm Chuck Peck, 

    If you're in the greater Phoenix AZ area and play Shakuhachi or have ever considered playing it, you've come to the right place. 

    If you’re looking for shakuhachi playing guides and books, sheet music, CDs, DVDs, flutes from around the world and flute craft manuals,  you've come to the right place.

    The shakuhachi 尺八, is a Japanese end-blown flute. Shakuhachi are usually made from the root end of a bamboo culm and are extremely versatile instruments. Professional players can produce virtually any pitch they wish from the instrument, and play a wide repertoire of original Zen music, ensemble music with koto, biwa, and shamisen, folk music, jazz, and other modern pieces. It was used by the monks of the Fuke school of Zen Buddhism in the practice of suizen (吹禅?, blowing meditation). Its soulful sound made it popular in 1980s pop music in the English-speaking world.

    We have a shakuhachi flute circle and workshop that is held on the first Saturday of the month from 10:00 am to about noon. Everyone is welcome, even if you just want to watch, hear or learn a bit more about the Shakuhachi flute.
