If you live outside of Japan and are interested in taking online lessons then please feel free to contact me.

My aspiration is to share with others what I have learned from my private studies with Ted Greene, as well as music theory, ear training and solo guitar arrangements.

For more information about me and my studies with Ted, as featured in the Fall 2023 Ted Greene Newsletter, please visit https://tedgreene.com/news/default.asp.

and I would be happy to schedule a lesson.

Student Reviews

I have been taking lessons with Tsuyoshi since 2015 and couldn’t have asked for a better fit for me as a teacher.

When I initially discovered Ted Greene, and his complete mastery of harmony on the guitar, it made me want to find out everything I could about it and learn from the greatest of all time. Unfortunately I was too late to meet Ted, but shortly after that, as if heaven-sent, I crossed paths with Tsuyoshi and learned that he had taken more lessons with Ted than any other student, and was able to provide lessons over Skype.

The first thing I learned from Tsuyoshi was a harp-harmonics version of “Embraceable You”, and over 250 lessons later it’s no exaggeration to say that he has completely changed my musical life. Lessons with Tsuyoshi are so pressure-free, and so gentle and encouraging that I truly believe him to be the perfect person to study with if you have an interest in really pursuing a really deep understanding of harmony on the guitar, specifically in the school of Ted Greene.

Through Tsuyoshi, I have also been able to study Ted’s voicing systems, his seemingly never-ending ideas and ways to learn music theory, and the most beautiful of arrangements with modulation, intros, outros, the lot! I am playing beyond a level that I never thought it would be possible to achieve, and I would highly recommend seeking out Tsuyoshi if you want to do the same.
