Beginner students

Everybody’s a beginner at first. We can start from the beginning by teaching you how to hold the guitar, how to play single notes and strum chords, as well as how to read music. After 3 months you’ll be able to play some easy popular songs.

Intermediate students

Students who have played before, have been playing on their own for a while, or those who want to try different styles, let us help you get to the next level.

Advanced students

We also welcome students who want to become professional musicians as well as those who want to perfect their skills after years of independent learning!

Thank you for interesting lessons!

Thank you for interesting lessons!  Though I’ve been playing the guitar for a while, I didn’t know what to do to become a more skilled player.  Since I’ve started to take lessons here, I found flaws in my playing and how to fix them, finally.

After the second class I feel the communication is great, and he teaches me some ways to practice at home that was really helpful. Looking forward for the next lesson. 〇When did you start lessons at TAGA: 1 year ago 〇Lesson Style: Acoustic guitar 〇Nationality: Taiwan   〇Age: 27

Thank you! Parent of Mirai: 今後も楽しみながらレッスンして頂ければ嬉しいです。 〇Why did you initially choose to take guitar lessons with our school rather than with another school in Tokyo?: 小さな子供でもクラスがあった事。 マンツーマンなので集中してレッスンできている。
