Shamisen Lessons

Hello! I’ve been trying to find a Tsugaru Shamisen teacher and I haven’t been able to find much contact information, could anyone help me with that?

@abbyw I literally just saw on the Ki&Ki YouTube channel that they do lessons via a Patreon membership: Learn Shamisen

As soon as I can get an instrument, I’ll probably join!

Hi there, welcome.

You can get online lessons via Bachido either through video, or by getting in contact with one of the teachers associated with the website. Su Bunjamin, a German based player, also does some teaching.

If you’re on JST, my friend Takuya Hamatani offers lessons through the net. He speaks a little English and is proficient in a number of styles.

Shamimaster Toshi/Shishido also teaches out of Shinjuku. Here’s his website.


Thank you so much!! If I can’t find a teacher that’s probably what I’ll end up doing :slight_smile:
