Koto is Japanese harp you can tune extensively, create a variation of the sound
Founded by Chieko Mori, based in Tokyo since 2007. Students learn both traditional Japanese koto music and Chieko Mori’s composition to master the advanced techniques.
KOTO STUDIO is the place to let yourself free from static playing style, find out individual sound and expression. Painter Gustav Klimt was first president of the Secession building in Vienna, where written phrase caved over the entrance; "To every age its art, To art its freedom" (Der Zeit ihre Kunst. Der Kunst ihre Freiheit.)
Our goal is to reach beyond the technique of classical koto playing style, sensitively achieve to polish skills and find out own way of playing style to harmonize with own expression.
Students who seriously want to face learning the Instrument are welcome. Teaching from beginner to professional player. We do accept students who has different background experiences and playing styles.
