Thankyou for my lesson. It was very interesting and I got to play the koto also. It was difficult at first but very enjoyable. I think I'f you ever hear this music and want to try... But don't live in Kyoto.. This is the guy to go to! :) thanks very much and I will have another lesson soon.
Great lesson made time fly by
We had a little trouble finding the teachers house but then we met him outside already
Very patient and helpful!
I was trying to look for Kozan-san's place without WIFI that
An experience to cherish
The 2 hour session with Kozan san was enriching. It always helps when your teacher is a good player himself and yet
I've been enjoyed the lesson so much. The sound of the shamisen and koto is really beautiful.
An amazing time!! Any north Americans who have an interest in Japanese string instruments,
Thankyou for my lesson. It was very interesting and I got to play the koto also.
Kozan is amazing at playing the shamisen. He is a great teacher, very friendly, and very good at giving direction. I had no trouble playing the shamisen, and picked it up quite easily. Also, ask Kozan to demonstrate playing the Koto on your visit... you won’t regret it. If you’re after a traditional Japanese experience, I suggest trying this out as it fun and unique activity... one to boast to your jealous friends about back home!
Cant recommend this highly enough.
We worked on three instruments (shamisen, koto, and sanshin);
Outstanding Musical Experience
I met with Shishido-sensei on a Thursday afternoon after he quickly responded to a last-minute request for an appointment
He showed me how to play the shamisen first, which comprised most of the lesson.
Then, he showed me the koto, which is just gorgeous in person and sounds incredible even when a beginner plays.
Disclaimer: I've played guitar for 8 years or so and play a few other instruments,
Kozan was a very kind teacher and made leading to play easy and fun.
