Department of Traditional Japanese Music, Tokyo University of the Arts
Students of Traditional Japanese Music at the Tokyo University of the Arts principally learn about performance of classical Japanese music, in the hope that they will carry on those timeworn traditions. In the koto and shakuhachi majors, students interact with those studying composition and western music in order to explore new musical possibilities. The third-year students performing here also appear in the Thursday Concerts in Taito City. *Five players of Koto and Shakuhachi will perform for this concert.
