Students' voice

■  N.R  female  age 31  career 2 years 

She teaches me very carefully and patiently. It's good for me that she doesn't rush to do many songs, but she steadily teaches me one by one, so I can understand very deeply. For each lesson, she gives me homework which is appropriate for me on each step, so I can tell what I have to practice at home. Her instructions are very detail, for example, which muscle I have to use, exactly where and how I have to control my body, and so on. The more I take her lessons, the more I get higher motivation.

 

■  I.Y  female age 36 career 16 years professional vocalist and player 

She knows well what and how to teach for each student, very easy to understand. She supports me to step up one by one steadily. She is very enthusiastic teacher as well as a good singer and player, I trust her and be able to keep it up.

 

■ OOMOTO Tatsuya (Osaka)  male age 52 career 9 months 

I enjoy her careful and kind teaching. I also enjoy to play with students,

and to see them improving helps me to understand more.

 

■ Brenda Chen (Taiwan) female  age 38  

I haven't studied Sanshin properly at all but have been playing w/t it for

fun by myself for about 1 year. The trial class we had was much much

better than I had anticipated. I only hoped I had more money and time

to dwell on the teachings that day.
