Music heals our hearts



Message from Masako

Dear Families and Friend,

Our studio has been closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak; however, we are happy to announce that we will reopen our Newark studio starting on July 15, 2021 as the Coronavirus situation is improving. At this time you have the option to choose between onsite or online private lessons to assure a smooth transition during these unprecedented circumstances. We are still very cautious about the risk of infection, and would like you to read the Reopening Guideline before visiting the studio. We will announce the group lesson schedule when we are ready to restart in the near future.

I strongly believe that "Music Heals Our Hearts". I hope everyone can find joy in playing music and reduce their stress during this uncertain and difficult time.

Stay Healthy and Safe!

Masako Yamamoto

Private lessons are offered for ages five (for piano, violin, & voice) or eight (for guitar) through adults of all levels and is catered to meet each studentʼs needs and level of playing. Private lessons provide students with the opportunity to learn practice strategies, develop technical skills, improve musicianship, and gain a repertoire of knowledge and appreciation. However, our studioʼs main goals are to enrich studentsʼ lives with music, to help them become independent performers, and to nurture a lifelong love of music. Repertoires include not only classical, but also childrenʼs songs, folk songs, jazz and popular music that are suitable for the students. Students have opportunities to perform three times a year (two mini concerts held at our studio and one annual recital at community location). Students can start private lessons anytime during the year.
