What you'll do

To begin, we'll break the ice by enjoying a cup of tea together at my home. Then, I will show you my collection of traditional Korean bamboo wind instruments—the daegeum, sogeum, and danso—and I will play them so you can hear how each of them sounds. Then you will have a chance to learn how to play the danso, and we will perform music together. This is a great chance to experience traditional Korean music, and I will give you a danso (instrument) as a gift.

What's included

  • Drinks
    Tea
  • Equipment
    Plastic danso

Hello. I play traditional Korean music and promote Korean music to the rest of the world. While other Asian musical styles such as China's and Japan's have their own stories to tell, Korean music conveys people's feelings. As a person who loves to travel, I would like to share my feelings and experiences with you.

Highly recommend! Yongju was an absolutely amazing teacher who was patient with me making mistakes and laughing with me when felt I was getting nowhere! First I got a taxi and he met up with me outside before walking me to his home. We had tea and he even let me have a go on his gayegeum while also demonstrating the different traditional wind instruments and their sounds as well as what traditional music sheets look like! Very interesting to say the least! Then we got down to practice! Even when I was struggling to remember certain parts of the music he was very patient even when I was losing patience myself! What's really nice is he breaks it down into small pieces for you to learn and will even play along with you to help you! He was kind enough to suggest recording him playing so I can practice in my own time! Afterwards he offered for us to get something to eat and we went to have kimchi stew which is one of my favourites and quickly becoming a new year tradition when I'm in korea! This experience has definitely been the highlight of my birthday so far and reccomend anyone to give it ago!

It was a fun experience to learn with Yongju who was very patient. Blowing was the hardest part in my opinion, but fun nonetheless.

Amazing music experience. We took a Korean flute lesson with Yongju. He started by playing us music he composed, performing different flutes for us, and then the lesson began. We drank tea while learning to play Airang on our flutes. I have a musical background, so after getting familiar with the instrument, he taught me to read traditional music. It was fascinating and something I always wished I could do. I enjoyed the lesson very much! I brought my young son along with me, and Yongju was very patient with him and did his best to make him feel included. Overall, it was a very great experience.

We had a great time at this experience! Yongju was very friendly and kindly allowed my friend’s young son to join us for the experience. My friend is an experienced musician but I’m not as much and he was great at adjusting for our individual levels! We got a flute of our own to keep as well as many memories and lunch too to chat some more! Highly recommend this experience! 😀

An amazing experience with an amazing host, Yongju is a great teacher, and for me to be able to play a song by end of day is something unexpected. Also, learning about traditional Korean instruments is new to me. I totally recommend this experience, especially for those who likes music.
