David Duncavage learned of the shakuhachi as a method of meditation while a monk in the mountains of Colorado. Living in the silence of a Trappist Monastery, the simple natural sound of the shakuhachi blended in with the day to day life of prayer and work around which the monk lives his life. This monastic experience became the foundation of David’s approach to the shakuhachi.

In 1984 he traveled to Japan to study shakuhachi under the renowned Master Kurahashi Yoshio Sensei in Kyoto, Japan. Under Kurahashi Sensei, David studied classical honkyoku (zen meditation music) in the Kinko, Myoan, and Nezasaha, schools as well as studied “Hogaku”, the classical ensemble repertoire with the shamisen and koto. In October 1989, David was awarded the “Shihan” (Master teaching license) for the shakuhachi from Kurahashi Sensei.

In 1990 David returned to the US and opened Chikufu-an Shakuhachi Dojo where he teaches and makes the shakuhachi using traditional materials and methods acquired in Japan.
