I am officially a music major…
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.
It’s been about 20 years…
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.
Great quality! Great Value! Great People!
Thank you for giving me awesome lessons as always. Teachers are so sweet and flexible in scheduling and they always give me something new and inspirational. Great quality! Great Value! Great People! Great quality and knowledge!

The teachers are nice to me!
It was fun because from the first lesson I learned new chords and I stretched and moved my fingers! I also learned how to tune! The teachers are nice to me! I love to come to American guitar academy!
Parent of Hana: 〇Why did you initially choose to take guitar lessons with our school rather than with another school in Tokyo?: 英語でのギターレッスン。レッスンのメイクアップがし易い。個人に合わせたレッスンをしてもらえる。個人のレベルや性格に合ったレッスンを提案してもらえる。
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。

My teacher Giovanni plays guitar perfectly well. I am looking forward to getting more new lessons. Please teach me arpeggio and other strumming styles next time!! From Maro.
Parent of Maro： 個人レッスンで、個人のキャラクターをみながら上達を促してくれます。
〇Why did you initially choose to take guitar lessons with our school rather than with another school in Tokyo?： Webで拝見してとても楽しそうな雰囲気だったので。日本の一般的な教室の決まりきったプログラムではなく、外国人の先生方ともコミュニケーションをとりながらオリジナリティーのあるレッスンをしていただけると思ったので。
You can learn many things…
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.
He is a very kind teacher!!!!
My teacher always encourages me during the lessons and he is a very kind teacher!!!! And of course, he is a wonderful guitar performer!!!

Now I enjoy playing guitar more…
I highly recommend learning guitar at The American Guitar Academy. After my first few lessons I was already noticeably much better at playing and was also learning guitar faster than I have ever had before. Plus, now I enjoy playing guitar more than I ever have!
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。

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’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!

I can learn English and the guitar at the same time, so I think it’s like killing two birds with one stone. All the teachers have Individuality and it is interesting.
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。
Keep on Rollin’!!
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’!!
Thanks to you I love music even more!
I started as a novice beginner (I could not read the score), I really appreciate it is all being taught very politely to me. Thanks to you I love music even more!! The number of classrooms also increased, and time flexibility also works very well, so It is easy to schedule lessons when you are working.

I really like the atmosphere at TAGA.
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.
