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!

40歳を過ぎてから…

ギター講師
40歳を過ぎてから、ギターを始めました。Hiroshi先生は覚えのわるい私に根気よく丁寧に教えてくださるので、毎回楽しく通っています。 昔から音楽が好きでしたが、楽器には特に触れてきませんでした。ギターを習うことで、音楽に対する幅が広がり、より興味深く考えるようになりました。 様々なジャンルの音楽にトライしてみたいです。 いつか、弾いてみたい曲がひけるよう、今後もご指導よろしくお願いいたします。 〇When did you start lessons at TAGA: 1 and a half years ago  〇Lesson Style: Classical guitar

一流のミュージシャンによる楽しく役に立つレッスンが受けられます。 東京にあるたくさんのギタースクールは大よそMethodがしっかりしていないけど、TAGAのレッスンは、インストラクターがしっかりした経験があり、過去に受けたカリキュラムにもとづいている。 基礎から教えていただき、自分の足らない所を強化してくれる。リズム、読譜、スケール、コードなど。 〇When did you start lessons at TAGA: 3 years ago 〇Lesson Style: Jazz guitar & Flamenco guitar

ギター講師
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.
