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!

いつも目からうろこが落ちる思いです。

unnamed (10)
アドリブを弾きたいとずっと思っており独学で頑張ってきましたが、限界を感じ門をたたきました。新しいことを教わるたびに、いつも目からうろこが落ちる思いです。ギターの楽しさ、難しさ、奥深さを日々感じさせてもらってます。 〇Why did you initially choose to take guitar lessons with our school rather than with another school in Tokyo?  : 英語とギターをいっしょに学べる。 発表会と毎月のセミナーがある。 〇When did you start lessons at TAGA: 2 and a half years ago  〇Lesson Style: Jazz guitar
