This beginning class presents the basic technique of playing the shamisen, a traditional, Japanese, stringed instrument. Classes will center on the zashiki style of performance, a rather informal and intimate style associated with geisha musicians, instead of the more strict style heard in kabuki or bunraku theater. Students will learn to play simple folk or children's songs. Instruments will be available for rental, and interested students can arrange for private lessons. Eight-week session.
