A limited number of people can receive direct instruction from Professor Stéphanos Thomopoulos from the And Vision Hall in Ochanomizu, Tokyo or at the customer's home (online attendance is also available).If you are thinking about studying piano in France, you can get a foothold to study abroad. When deciding where to study abroad, taking lessons from a professor at the Conservatoire de Nice in France will serve as a guideline. The professor is happy to share various kinds of music with everyone in Japan. Anyone can attend, regardless of age or level. Especially for those who are thinking about studying abroad in the piano, preparing for competitions and auditions, improving their level, and those who genuinely like music! Don't miss this opportunity! Due to the time difference, it will be held with a very limited number of people.
* 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 the teacher. Musical instruments other than the piano 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 points of teaching are different from those in Japan? If you want to play an active role overseas, it will be an opportunity to think about studying abroad.

If you are thinking of studying in France 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 an overseas teacher while you are in Japan!
Just thinking does not open the door to your dreams. There is only action. Don't miss this opportunity!
