My journey with the shakuhachi has taken an exciting turn! After owning a Japanese-made instrument, I recently acquired a shakuhachi crafted by Ricardo Zapata in Colombia. I'm particularly impressed by its stunning aesthetics, perfect balance, accurately tuned, and how effortlessly it allows me to play even complex notes. The quality is truly superior!

I highly recommend taking lessons with Zapata Sensei. Not only is he incredibly patient, but his teaching style makes learning the instrument a very convenient experience. He goes beyond just technique, delving into the rich philosophy that underlies the shakuhachi and budo traditions. Thank you for starting me on my journey through the path. Your teaching way is exceptional, it is done in the old way, with your mind, body, and heart working together.

I have received my flute after only 3 days of enrolling to shakuhachi master course. The response was quick and from the beginning of the course I've been treated with respect and encouragement. The course has many topics that support my learning and is easily accessible and concise. The study cycles progress through the certification and are laid out in a logical and progressive manner with personal instructional training support from Zapata sensei.
