EXPERIENCE
Yuji has been teaching flute and piano since 1990s in Japan, and continue to teaching in US since 1998. Beginner to professional level are always welcome. He had 98 students in Tokyo as flute instructor at Yamaha Music Foundation, PMS before came to US. He also managed student recital twice a year both flute and piano students. For beginner level students, he always tried to find easy text book, such as faber and faber piano adventure series, and popular songs as well. For flute students, he accepted novice level students and find a rental instruments if students were not sure how to buy the new instruments.
METHODS USED
Faber and Faber piano adventure Alfred's piano course Hanon the virtuoso pianist, , sonatina album: Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven.Bach invention, Burgmuller Op.100. For flute students, Trevor Wye flute book vol.1,2. Altes flute methods, Learn to play series, Kohler 33 easy flute exercises, French composers by Luis Moyse, also for advanced level students, preparing district auditions requirements. Stamitz, Mozart, Boccherini, Mercadante concerti, J.S. Bach, C.P. E Bach solo sonata, Handel sonatas.
LESSON STYLE
I always try not to push for practice assignments, students are busy for school homework, outdoor activities, family obligations, most importantly, students should have fun to play music, of course practice is important, but if students lost interest in music playing, it will be hard to continue to have lessons. For parents, they would like to see kids's improvements, so that I set up student recital each year, and they can see how the kids improved each semester. Of course for advanced level students should have more assignments.

Yuji is an experienced flautist and has a lot of patience, especially when coaching sight reading, which is often a tedious task for both parties. He places a lot of focus on intonation and teaches you how to project your sound and achieve resonance, which is really key for flute playing. I appreciate that he understands this and encourages it.
