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
