An internationally performed composer and master shakuhachi performer, Shawn Renzoh Head continues to transcend borders through his music, mixing Japanese traditional music with a distinct western compositional style. Shawn earned his Shihan degree (master instructor) under the tutelage of Michael Chikuzen Gould and became the youngest non-Japanese shihan in shakuhachi. He also earned a bachelor’s degree in composition from the Cleveland Institute of Music under professors Keith Fitch and Steven Kohn.
