Miyama is a licensed teacher at the Sawai International Koto Academy. Lessons are available in the Nerima area in Tokyo.
Miyama teaches mostly contemporary repertoire for the koto and 17 stringed bass koto. If you would like to begin learning, or would like to resume learning, feel free to contact Miyama anytime. If you have any particular repertoire you would like to learn, this can be consulted with Miyama as well.
If you do not own a koto, instrument rental is available, and purchase of an instrument is also possible. The only things that will have to be purchased are one set of tsume (plectrums) and a music score, if you do not already own them.
Lesson levels range from complete beginner level to advanced.
Those who wish are also able to sit for certificates at the Sawai Koto Academy.
Lessons are available in both English and Japanese.
Free trial lessons are also available.
There is no membership fee, so even if you are in Japan for a short time, you are
welcome to come for lessons while you are here.
