Dear List,

With the world slowly recovering, this will likely be our last online intensive program so don't miss it and please share this with those you think would be of interest.

This is a final call for the upcoming workshop hosted by Theatre Nohgaku in collaboration the Oshima noh family.
WHAT: Noh Training Project (NTP) Online Utai
WHEN: June 20 - July 16, 2022 (JST)
COST: Please see our website for prices.
Based in Tokyo, Theatre Nohgaku’s Noh Training Project Online Utai Summer Intensive
 is a comprehensive course to begin learning the chant of
classical noh in the Kita-ryu style. No prior Japanese language facility is required and all sessions are taught either in English language or with an interpreter.

This course include:
An official Kita-ryu rehearsal fan sent from Tokyo 

8 private 30-minute lessons with master teachers

All course materials including chant notation, downloadable recordings, and
streamable videos

2 group Q&A sessions with noh professionals
including a virtual backstage tour of a noh theatre

Optional live group chant-alongs

A final group recital   

The study of noh chant benefits practices like breath control, vocal projection, mindfulness, and centered stability.
Anyone interested in a non-Western approach to music or Japanese cultural studies is encouraged to enroll.


Conducted via Zoom, all workshop times will be determined and
coordinated once participants are confirmed. The hours of the
workshop will be adjusted to accommodate participant’s time zones.

Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be welcome to
continue their practice online in Theatre Nohgaku's ongoing NTP
online utai series with Kita-ryu master instructors.

Hope to hear from you.
