Nice to meet you. My name is Miyuki Tomiyama. 

Even if you can’t read music

Even if you’ve never touched a piano before

If you’d rather learn your favorite songs over Bayer practice songs

and learn how to play them easily, quickly, and with style those are exactly the kind of lessons I want to offer!

I run a slightly unconventional music academy where about 90% of the students are adults, and about half are men. I also teach piano, voice, and music theory at universities.

I have 15 years of experience and results as a Japan Music Therapy Association accredited music therapist and I perform music therapy at senior homes and hospitals.
