Marimba classroom Lesson features

We will give you a total lesson on how to hold mallets, basic playing methods, and musical expressions.

I'm looking for a teacher who wants to play a different instrument, a brass band, a person who belongs to a marching band and is not good at keyboard instruments, a person who is interested but has never taken lessons. This class is recommended for those who want to play.
Since it is a one-on-one lesson, you can do lessons that suit each person from children to adults.

We are accepting lesson tours at any time !!


★ Beginner class
Beginners welcome! Master how to hold mallets and basic playing techniques, and start with simple songs to familiarize yourself with the marimba.

★ Intermediate class
After mastering the basics, try a slightly difficult song! !!
Enjoy marimba playing and music.

★ Advanced class
We will develop more advanced techniques and rich musical expressions using four mallets.

★ Music course examination class
A specialized course for those who aim to take the music high school and music music college examination.
A special program to acquire more specialized skills and expressions.
