I am an instructor at the Oyama school of Tsugaru Shamisen. I also play the “koto” (Japanese harp) and the Okinawan sanshin (gutair-like instrument). In addition to being experienced in Japanese music, I also have a deep understanding of Japanese arts and culture. I want to help expose non-Japanese people to Japanese culture through my work and teachings.

    Learn to Play the Shamisen and Koto We had a little trouble finding the teachers house but then we met him outside already searching for us. The lesson was really fun and time was flying by. My friend and me played both instruments each for the very first time and it wasn't easy (even for experienced guitar players) but the teacher was very patient and spreading nice vibes. Also he played some impressive songs when we asked him to play something for us. At the end he took some fotos of us playing the shamisen and koto.

    Learn to Play the Shamisen and Koto I was trying to look for Kozan-san's place without WIFI that day in the rain and got lost for a bit, ended up late by around 20 minutes. Kozan-san was very nice to extend the ending time for the class since his next class starts 30 minutes after the original ending time of my class. The whole experience was very unique and fun! I was even more charmed by shamisen after the class! Definitely recommending this class to my friends!

    Learn to Play the Shamisen and Koto The 2 hour session with Kozan san was enriching. It always helps when your teacher is a good player himself and yet has the patience to handle novices. He encouraged and guided me to try out a few tunes. It certainly adds to ppreciation and any performing art enthusiast is likely to love this experience. A big thank you to Kozan san and Voyagin.
