Music Education Course

Music education is like a bridge, passing on the charm of music to the next generation, while spreading it widely in society.

The Music Education Program is a program of study that trains professionals who spread the splendor and depth of music to other people. Students study for four years to become instructors at schools, or they take on the capacity of professionals who contribute to the advancement of musical culture. Furthermore, students completing this program of study are waived of any payments for the teacher training course completion fee. The program offers the following three features:

  1. Students acquire a wealth of musical performance experience. Practical skills for playing the piano and voice music essential for instructors are obviously included, however students may also receive multiple private lessons each week, as they desire, including the use of musical instruments to which they have not had any prior exposure, including such popular musical instruments as drums.
  2. Students begin to acquire a wealth of knowledge with techniques relating to instructions along the way until graduation through specialized research on music education, including such topics as “educational material creations”, “instruction plan preparation”, “simulated class implementation” and the like, starting from the first year.
  3. Outreach efforts that can directly lead to improved instruction capabilities are proactively sought, with volunteer dispatched instructions given at schools in the neighborhood. Many practical pieces of work relating to such instructions nurture students into becoming battle-ready individuals in the field of education.
    We invite you to come and learn with us and broaden your potential so that one day you might become a person who actively engages in the work of passing on the charm of music to the next generation, while disseminating music throughout society.
