PHILOSOPHY

personality & harmony KAWAI MUSIC SCHOOL

personality & harmony

We bring out precious personality in each student through music.
In addition, we create delight through respecting and harmonizing each other's personality.

The philosophy of Kawai Music School is not to learn music, but to learn “through” music.
Our goal is not only to help students acquire skills and improve their performance, but also to nurture their individuality through the expressive activities of each course, aiming to
develop a richer personality.

KAWAI Music Educational System

We have been building up our past performance under the policy of “Music is the highest nourishment for cultivating rich humanity”.
The stance to bring up “students who enjoy music” should be applied equally to any small infant, any adult who enjoys music as they like, or any young musician who has the musical quality to become a specialist.

3 Features of KAWAI Music Educational System

  • Provide musical opportunities
    We provide musical opportunities for all people from infants to the elderly, in order that everyone can equally obtain and fully enjoy music.

  • Help learning skills
    We will continue to support students in learning techniques in order to pursue higher, deeper and more versatile expressions.

  • Enrich Humanity
    We bring up various abilities and possibilities in each person and cultivate their own sensitivity and personality through music.
