Shamisen in Hamburg

Shamisen is a traditional Japanese and popular string musical instrument which was born in Osaka, Japan and is often used in various music scenes or other traditional performances. Wakanagi is a music school that is based in Osaka and has been teaching traditional music instruments such as Shamisen for a long time.
We opened the Hamburg branch of Wakanagi to teach Shamisen in Hamburg. Participation in Shamisen lessons is welcome anytime but only until September 2024. At the beginning, participants will start with private lessons on dates and times that fit individual schedules. After finishing the beginner's lesson, group lessons will follow, where participants can also enjoy ensemble. Assuming that participants are beginners and international, the lessons will be given in Japanese or English and in a solid manner that has been established via a long-time teaching experience in Wakanagi.
After October 2024, online lessons will follow in which students will participate from Hamburg, whereas teachers will participate from Osaka.
