Choose the instrument you would like to play from the following three types, Tsugaru shamisen, Koto and Okinawa sanshin. It is possible to choose not only one but also several. The Tsugaru shamisen plays a tone that is reminiscent of the snowstorm that was established in Tohoku. The koto plays a delicate beautiful tone and is relatively easy to play for a beginner In addition, the Okinawa sanshin is still popular with Japanese people and is also used for J-POP. You can also experiment with touching the instrument that you are holding. Please come and discover your favorite instruments.
The instructor will show off his live performance. It is a rare opportunity to listen to the performance by a lecturer who has many achievements such as winning a gold medal at a competition and performing abroad as well. Please discover the pleasant music of the unique sound and rhythm unique to traditional Japanese instruments.
After listening to the lecturer's wonderful performance, it is finally the start of a full-scale practice. You can choose a song you want to play from various genres such as music that has long been popular in Japan. The instructor will teach you how to play the instrument carefully from the beginning so you can take the lesson at your own pace. In the end, we have opportunities to show each other a performance, so please share your wonderful Japanese musical instrument experience with everyone.
