Rest, My Child

In truth, I did not create these albums with the idea that they would help children reach that lovely state of calm leading into sleep.

Our daughter discovered this with our first grandchildren. Later on, she told me of a friend with a newly-born child, whose midwife had recommended my music to play before and after childbirth.

Apparently, the midwife was very surprised when our daughter’s friend told her that I was a family friend, though possibly not as surprised as I was to hear the story!

I have since been told by many grateful mothers how their baby, or young child or children fell asleep daily to my music.

This makes me very happy!

Interested in a live performance?

Each year, I tour extensively throughout Australia and parts of the USA and Europe. Depending on the circumstances, I enjoy giving intimate ‘house’ concerts. I also do a number of benefit concerts and performances for certain kinds of groups and their events.

If you or your organisation might be interested in my playing for you, contact me. It’s possible that the stars will align in a way that we can make it happen.

Your own Music?

Would you like me to create and record a composition of solo shakuhachi just for you? For a friend? Or your child? A gift for a special occasion?
