What’s TAGA like?

Naturally…

teacher_photo05

At the American Guitar Academy, not only just learning songs, but I also got to strengthen my foundation and get to learn how to use various of techniques naturally.  It’s such a big difference between a player who gets the basics down compares to a player who doesn’t.

えい語もべんきょうできるし、ギターもできるので楽しいです。どんどんむずかしくなるけれど、できるとうれしいです。つづけるといいべんきょうになります。

Parent of Ritsu: 先生がみなさんフレンドリーで、楽しくレッスンを受けられています。クラシックだけではなく「コード」「ピック」も学ぶ事ができます。 レッスンの曜日、時間の選択肢が豊富で受講しやすいです。 振替もHPで確認、変更できるのでたいへん便利です。

I really like the atmosphere at TAGA.

unnamed

I love TAGA!  I have never really learned an instrument before and I feel like TAGA has encouraged and supported me every step of the way.

I received a recommendation from a friend and I found out that the classes were in English, which was a major drawcard.  I also found Roppongi to be a convenient location. I like the ability to be able to reschedule lessons online most of all.  I really like the atmosphere at TAGA.  Everyone is positive and friendly and I’ve always felt uplifted when coming here after a rough day at work.  I always appreciate suggestions of songs that I will be able to master quickly.

I feel very lucky…

I took lessons at the American Guitar Academy while working in Japan. I feel very lucky to have found out about the academy and highly recommend it to anyone interested in guitar while in Japan.

My instructor was an experienced guitar teacher, and attentive to both my progress and my learning methods. Many times when I was struggling during practice, my instructor was able to show me a solution that got me through the difficult problem.

It is such a valuable experience that I get to learn many things in English from teachers who have lots of overseas experience.  Although I never had the opportunity to study abroad, I am very grateful and it’s like a dream come true that I get to have this experience while working in Japan.  Thank you very much.

teacher_photo02

Fell in love in the world of Blues, I came to The American Guitar Academy.  I was at a point where self-learning was not enough to take me to the next level on something that I am passionate about.  Thanks to my teacher’s dedicated teaching, after taking some lessons, the barrier to the next step of my guitar learning journey started to crumble down.  Although I am busy everyday because of work, I would think of what my teacher always says to me, “just 5 minutes everyday”,  and sits down and practice.  Through everyday’s practice, I hope I can one day be as good as B.B.King.  Keep on Rollin’!!

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.

It’s not just guitar, it’s “Music”…

I am having a lot of fun learning at the American Guitar Academy! My teacher has taught me not only guitar but what music really is.  I was obsessed with learning techniques and I have forgotten the fun when playing the guitar.  My teacher always reminds me of the fun when I was struggling with playing.  Thank you very much for giving me a chance to enjoy the fun in music!

決まったテキストを順に進めるのではなく、毎回先生と相談しながらレッスンを進められるので、やりやすいです。コードを習ったり、コードを使う曲や弾き方を教わったり、タメになる雑談をしたり。
講師や教室の雰囲気がリラックスでき、レッスンの方法もかた苦しくない! 先生が外国の方なので英語が話せるともっと楽しいだろうなあ…

I am officially a music major…

Kosuke

I’m doing great and enjoying my time at college. I just wanted to let you all know that I am extremely thankful that I was able to have you as my guitar teachers for about a year, and that I was able to learn from you all.

Now that I am officially a music major in my school now, I have found that everything you have taught me has helped me a LOT. I am currently ahead in all of my music classes compared to all of the freshman in my school and still going strong. This would have been impossible for me to do without all of your help.

I know it is kind of late to tell you this but I am truly thankful for you all teaching me and helping me out with my musical journey. You have equipped me with more skill than I thought I had and I am so thankful for that.

I started to play the guitar again after about 20 years.  I am enjoying learning from the basics to something that I have never learned before regarding Music Theory.  Not only in just guitar, but now I have a deeper understanding of music over all.  I would like to thank my teacher, Michael Kaplan.
