Private Music Lessons

Available Worldwide

What is music to you?

Something you keep a distance from, a part of your life, something you just listen to, something you enjoy just playing…

But if you could create music?

That’s not easy for you, you are not talented, you are confident of, you have no idea what to do…there might be some hesitation.

But wait a bit, where does the hesitation come from?

You need a special skill, your teacher doesn’t recognise your expression in music, you have to study music theory to create music, you can’t play any musical instruments in the first place…

In fact, they are all your imagination. In other words, you are bound by a single point of view.

We are equal under sound, but not under music
Anyone can make sound. But when it comes to music, we start by using musical instruments such as piano or guitar, five-line notation system and music theory in common, and tend to categorise and rate everything saying “That’s wrong”, “You must do like this”, “He/she is good”, “You are not talented”, “You’d better study again from the beginning”.

Single "ordinary" perspective
This means that people follow "great" musicians in the past as role models, or depend on popular songs or musical instruments that everybody is using, and gradually share and are bound by a single "ordinary" perspective.

Where has our own music gone?
This leads you to be blind to your own sense of music, originality and creativity, or give up music thinking that you can’t do it. Some people reach deadlock.

This is not everything of music
It’s natural that you think this is the everything of music, but this is just one perspective and you can obviously take another perspective. You simply didn’t know it.

A series of workshops called "Invent Music" that I have organised in Japan, New Zealand and the Netherlands since 2012 proved that we can create music without existing musical instruments such as guitar or violin, existing five-line notation system and music theory such as "Do-Re-Mi" or chord progressions. People who joined the workshops found out how music is truly close to themselves and enjoy music from the heart.

Music is something like a double image that you can take multiple points of view. However, most people are not even aware of this since everyone shares only one “ordinary" perspective.

I provide private music lessons where you can take another point of view in music.

About the lessons

In my lessons, we don't work on particular musical instruments or songs, but instead focus on creating music ourselves and how we express ourselves in music in order to take a new perspective.

Here is the principle of my lessons:

1 Do Not Evaluate
Nothing will be evaluated such as "right", "wrong", "good", "bad", "role model", or "talented" in order to focus on your own (latent) sense of music.

2 Do Not Teach
For the same purpose, I will never "teach" anything but instead provide some information that might useful for you, and also help you express yourself. It is you who decide how you make sound with what kind of musical instrument, how you transcribe music, and what kind of sound you use.

3 Create Everything Ourselves
We will never use existing musical instruments such as piano or guitar, existing notation system or music pieces that someone else wrote, but instead create your own musical instruments, notation system and finally create songs using them.

Sounds difficult? Don't worry, it might be just your prejudice brought by existing music.

You will find out how music is truly close to you and you are able to create one yourself.

The lessons are based on Neutral Music Concept.
