A limited number of people can receive direct instruction from Lionel Friend sensei from the &Vision Hall in Ochanomizu, Tokyo or from your home (online attendance is also available). If you are studying abroad in the UK and are considering studying vocal music (opera), you can get a foothold in studying abroad. When deciding where to study abroad, the lessons taught by professors at the Royal College of Music and visiting professors at the Guildhall School of Music will be a helpful guide. The professor would be happy to share various music with everyone in Japan. This course is specially open to anyone over 18 years old (other than beginners). Of course, sensei music is also welcome! It is especially suitable for those who are thinking about studying abroad as a vocalist (studying abroad in opera), preparing for competitions and auditions, improving one's level, and those who simply love music! Don't miss this opportunity! Due to the time difference, this event will be held with a very limited number of participants.
* Private lessons are recommended for those who do not want to publish lessons or those who do not meet the schedule. If you are interested, please contact an And Vision Counselor.

If you haven't taken lessons yet, you can listen to them.There is so much you can learn by not only playing for yourself, but also watching other people's lessons.In fact, many students in Europe study through listening.It is also an opportunity to listen to the performances of many other people, and through the lessons of various people, you will be able to better understand the teaching method and personality of sensei.Musical instruments other than vocal music can also enjoy the atmosphere of overseas classes, so please feel free to join us.The teaching method of overseas professors is completely different from that of Japan.In particular, the main focus is to "enjoy and express music more", so the points to teach vary from student to student.Isn't it a big point for those who are aiming to study abroad or become a professional in the future to feel how the teaching method is different from Japan?Even if you are not satisfied with Japan, it will be an opportunity to think about studying abroad.

If you are thinking of studying in the UK or other countries in Europe, you can try studying abroad while you are in Japan.Consider the possibility of studying abroad in Europe.

It's a great chance to meet sensei overseas while you are in Japan!
Just thinking does not open the door to your dreams. There is only action. Don't miss this opportunity!
