Justin is one of the foremost experts of the Zen Buddhist music of the komuso, monks from Edo period Japan whose spiritual practice centred around the meditative music of the shakuhachi. He is one of the few people to have received his Shihan master’s license from more than one lineage, and equally rare for being both a professional performer and master craftsman of shakuhachi. On this site you can find more about Justin, the repertoire and rare honkyoku lineages he transmits, and information on the history of shakuhachi and listen to shakuhachi made and played by Justin.
Justin teaches Japanese shakuhachi music both in person at his dojo in London and online via skype. Please refer to the shakuhachi lessons page for more information.
