A Great Shakuhachi teacher passed away on May 30, 2017. He was 69 years-old. Ronnie Seldin was one of my first shakuhachi teachers. He was incredibly supportive of my shakuhachi making and over the years he sent many people to me for affordable flutes and repairs. I have been playing the shakuhachi for Ronnie everyday..
Here is a Go Fund Me campaign to support his family.

Hi, I’m Perry Yung. Welcome! I first discovered the shakuhachi flute while performing in New York City as an actor in Ellen Stewart’s Oedipus the King. Night after night, the subtle sound grew to become all encompassing. Soon, I started making the flute as it was impossible to buy a shakuhachi in the pre-internet days of 1994. Time passed and eight years later got a grant to live in Japan to study traditionally with some of the best makers and players in the world. The shakuhachi changed my life in ways that words can not describe. My goal is to help you with a flute that can open that door as it is a beautiful world on the other side. Come on in!
