Event features
We have prepared an adapter so that even beginners can make sounds immediately, and use songs that are familiar to their ears as practice songs so that they can enjoy themselves. In addition, it is a class where you can listen to the real sounds up close at a mini concert, and hear the old and new stories of Japanese music.

A framework enabling participants to continue with hands-on experience (practice) of traditional performing arts
Our group offers lessons for the general public on Monday and Tuesday as the basic lesson days. Inform the participants to that effect.
