Prices & Fees
As with any new hobby (in particular instruments and traditional arts), initial costs can be a bit high. For this reason, I offer trial lessons which allow you to try out the instruments before making a huge commitment.
If you decide to take lessons on a regular basis, I will help you find and purchase all the materials you will need.
*If you aren't sure you would like to commit to lessons or if you would just like to experience the koto or shamisen, I offer 45-minute trial lessons. We can study some basics and learn to play a simple song by the end of the lessons. It's a fun experience and you won't be required to purchase any expensive accessories or music.
**Koto students are NOT required to bring their own instrument to the lesson. This fee covers the cost of wear on my personal instruments, such as replacing strings and parts.
***Instrument rental is possible upon request and permitting availability. Fees will vary.
