EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching music for a wide range of generations of students for over 10 years. When I was in Japan, I had taught lessons in Yamano music school, which is one of well-known music schools in general music lesson industries in Japan. Throughout classical music to Jazz music, providing a lesson with full of joyfulness within a genuine music education to students is my teaching motto. Having an ability of playing music by your instrument is to be able to improve your own personality and expressions.

METHODS USED

Recommended Textbooks [published by Hal Leonard]・Essential Elements For Band (Saxophone, Clarinet, Flute)・Essential Elements For Jazz (Saxophone, Clarinet, Flute)・Piano Adventures (Piano)・Piano Lessons (Piano) - For beginning students who are children or elementary school students wishing to play Piano, Flute, Clarinet, or Saxophone, I typically start with Hal Leonard's Essential Elements. For the students' level of intermediate beyond, I only accept teaching Saxophone students. Then, I would like to see what kind of musicality on your saxophone you have, first. To do that, you have to prepare a song that you are most comfortable with. Or, I provide you some materials, or specific Etudes. For example: (For Saxophone student) ・H. Klose 25 Daily Exercises for Saxophone ・Marcel Mule 48 Etudes

LESSON STYLE

Essentially, my teaching style is to raise students with a lot of compliments. When students are doing very well, or showing their achievements by putting a lot of their efforts, practicing and studying, I naturally applaud them. Because playing instruments have to be fun in some ways. If students are going wrong directions, such as trying to dislike practicing their instrument, I might give you a little pep talk. In either case, I respect students, I would like students to improve their musicality and expand their future prosperities.

My 12 year son has been taking both in-person and remote lessons with Ryoju and he really enjoys his time with Ryoju.  Ryoju's approach is engaging. It brings out understanding of the music and the tones beyond just notes on the page. He facilitates improvision by developing the fundamentals of music structure - majors, minors, arpeggios, pentonics etc.  My son develped his love of Saxophone thanks to Ryoju

Ryojyu is a great teacher. I started classes with him virtually and transitioned to in-person. He was able to deliver effective guidance and feedback in both settings. Royju offers a wealth of academic and professional experience and is able to shape this to your personalized course. I feel a benefit every session I have with him.

We are truly grateful for the experience and dedication Ryoju brings as a teacher. He is not just an extraordinary musician but also an empathetic and patient teacher who makes learning saxophone fun by relating to the student with favorite tunes and skills at student's learning pace.
