Tsugaru Shamisen Lessons

Hey All,

Does anyone know of a good teacher for tsugaru shamisen that offer skype lessons? I had a left handed shamisen made for me by one of the wonderful members here a while back and I’d love to get proficient in it.


Hi Miles,

Hibiki Ichikawa (based in London but likely available at most times regardless of your time zone due to this lockdown we’re under) is the foremost Tsugaru Shamisen tutor in Europe and is also currently trialling Skype lessons, maybe hit him up on his website, hibikishamisen.com


Thanks a ton! I’ll definitely check this out and drop him a line.
