Marie Kitamura Piano Class

Marie Kitamura Piano Class

Greetings from the lecturer



I would be happy to help enrich your lives through piano!

As of August 2017, I completely returned to Japan after living in Germany and Switzerland for 7 years. While there, I studied chamber music and solo, and after graduating, I taught many students from children to adults as a church pianist, accompanist, and piano instructor at a music school.


Through various experiences and encounters, I have learned once again the joy and wonder of feeling and expressing music from the heart. Have fun, be bright, and be conscious of achieving your goals! I would be happy if I could learn from this and help everyone enrich their lives through the piano.


The lesson room is completely soundproofed and has been carefully created so that you can experience the warm and soft sound of the piano, reminiscent of the sounds of Europe.

Many students attend, ranging from college students to people in their 70s. Even though all of my students are busy with work, housework, and childcare, I feel like they find time on their own to practice hard and truly enjoy playing the piano.


Seeing them move me deeply and remind me of the importance of continuing to strive for a goal and the wonders of truly loving and enjoying music. I am grateful for meeting everyone. I would be happy if I could help you pursue the piano while enjoying it as a lifelong partner.

children's piano

To all the pianists you respect, what kind of teacher did you have as a child? When I asked this question, all they had in common was that he was a teacher who did his best to teach me the joy of playing the piano! The answer comes back. Our goal is for students to first experience the music by touching the piano, and then to truly enjoy the piano through lessons, so that they will fall in love with the piano and continue playing the piano for many years to come.

Event held


female pianist

Our classroom holds recitals, concerts, and previews three times a year. By practicing hard for the actual performance and performing in front of the audience, you will discover new challenges and become even more motivated by setting goals for the following year (songs you want to play, how to produce sounds, expressions, etc.)
The goal is to have you upload.

When the performance is over, everyone will be surprised to see that their performance and expressiveness have been refined, as if by magic. It will also be a place for students to interact with each other, so we encourage you to participate. (There are some students who don't think a real performance is necessary because they want to enjoy playing the piano at their own pace.

We fully respect each student's ideas, so participation is voluntary.)We encourage your students to participate as much as possible.
