The Sound of (Japanese) Music

Join us for “The Sound of (Japanese) Music,” a series of presentations

 and demos by four Japanese music ethnomusicologists. Designed to take you to a deeper level of understanding of traditional Japanese music, these presentations expand your knowledge of Japanese history and culture, including modern music innovations. You will learn about the evolving traditions of the koto, shakuhachi, shamisen and the recent development of taiko drumming. Some presentations will be recorded for your use later with your students. All sessions will be held through Zoom. Registration is required: Please register with our co-sponsor, the University of Pittsburgh NCTA.
