|RONNIE NYOGETSU REISHIN SELDIN is founder of the Ki-Sui-An Shakuhachi Dojo in New York City with several branches on the East Coast. Ronnie studied shakuhachi in Kyoto, Japan with Kurahashi Yodo Sensei, who was a disciple of Jin Nyodo. There, in 1975, he received the name Nyogetsu and a teaching certificate at the level of Jun Shi-han in the Kinko school of shakuhachi. After his return to New York, Nyogetsu was awarded the rank of Shi-han (Master) in 1978, as a result of his efforts to spread the teaching of this instrument in America. In 1980, he received his Dai Shi-han, or Grand Master's license. In 2001 he received Koku-An Dai-Shihan (Grand Master's license at the level of Kyu-Dan, or 9th level) from Japan's Living National Treasure in shakuhachi, Aoki Reibo. Ronnie was also given the name Reishin (Heart/Mind of the Bell) at that time.|
