Marco Lienhard

International Shakuhachi Master
Teaching Philosophy

I think it is important to start with a strong base. Learn about the instrument and also get a good sound and pitch as early as possible. Melodies and songs will come naturally and easily later on as long as you have a strong base to play the instrument


I have been a shakuhachi soloist with Ondekoza (famed Japanese Taiko drummer) for 18 years.

I have been director for Taikoza and East Winds Ensemble for 15 years.

I have played internationally on some of the best stages: Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Madison Square Garden and Hammerstein Ballroom, Boston Symphony Hall, Suntory Hall, Osaka Symphony Hall, etc.
