I've recently returned from the 14th annual Rocky Shakuhachi Camp in Loveland, Colorado. It was five days; playing the Japanese shakuhachi morning, noon, and night. The students and master level teachers are from all over the world, including several from Japan and one teacher from Australia.
Here's the group photo from the camp. We had two people from Arizona attend the camp. Richard C. And my self.
I'm already looking forward to next year!
