My 6 years old son has been learning from Shintaro for more than half a year now. He teaches pupils from the beginning to pay attention to all aspects of music, not only to get the tones out, but they need to be beautiful and with the right emotions. As he knows the piano techniques inside out, he can think of many different ways of practising. On top of that, listening to him playing together with the pupil is a pleasure. My son has developed a lot learning from him.

As a serious amateur for more than 30 years, I’d given up on lessons until I met Shintaro. In a short time he’s helped me develop new practice strategies and a more mature outlook on music. Thanks to his advice and instruction, my playing has reached a new level.

I’m from Japan. First of all, you shouldn’t chose an amateur teacher for a reason of a cheap price! I was struggling to play the piano because of a bad amateur piano teacher before I found real artistic teachers who have certain experiences as concert pianists. After years of removing bad behaviors and techniques, I got very conscious of using my body proper way while Practicing and got so much flexibilities on the piano.  I would love to share what I learned with my students!

Piano lessons

I started playing the piano age of three and I got invited in a class of Claudio Soares (one of the most known and greatest piano teachers in Japan and also known as a colleague of Maria Joao Pires) age of sixteen. After I finished bachelor and master of piano in Kyoto, I went to Switzerland (Lucerne) to be trained as a solo concert pianist with world famous pianist Konstantin Lifschitz and earned a diploma of higher master (soloist diploma). I played with several orchestras in Japan and Switzerland including Lucern Symphony Orchestra in KKL. Also I have played a lot of chamber music with singers, strings and winds (got the first prize at chamber music competition for all students in Swiss conservatories).

Piano and fortepiano

After spending 3 years in Switzerland, I relocated myself to The Hague. I studied fortepiano in master of early music in Royal Conservatoire and I worked as a teacher there later.

Apart from giving concerts and teaching, I have worked as an ensemble pianist with Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, Residentie Orkest, Noord Nederland Orkest, New European Ensemble.

I especially love early music, French music around 1900 although I play quite allround.

Also I like to teach how to read notes first with understanding music and ensembles.

I hope my students to be passionate and  spontaneous to understand what I give. Doesn’t matter with ages, levels. I have been teaching from 6 years old kid to advanced students who are going to competitions (national, international) and adults for their hobby.
