Japanese students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are now learning to play instruments on their own, thanks to a $30,000 grant from the Japan Society for the Arts.
The Japan Society is part of a new national arts education initiative that will support more than 300 Japanese students who have completed advanced courses at the university’s Center for Creative Arts.
This is a program that started at the beginning of this year and is now moving toward the completion of the first year, said Lisa Matsuura, the executive director of the Japanese Society for Creative and Performing Arts.
In the first two years, the students will learn how to play Guiro instruments on a wooden board with an arm rest on top.
The students will also learn how, under certain conditions, Guiro can be used as a percussion instrument, and how to make music with a Guiro, said Jazmin Sohn, the coordinator of the Japan-U.S. Collaborative on Arts Education.
For now, the program is only being offered to Japanese students, and the program will expand to other Japanese communities and universities in the coming years.
Matsuura said the program has been a long-time dream of Japanese students to be able to play on their instruments on campus.
The Japanese Society was founded in 1945.
It started with a Japanese artist who came to the United States and was fascinated with American music, said Matsuora.
He asked the Japan society for help, which led to a meeting of artists, educators and educators.
Sohn said this program was not just a goal, but also a way to bring together people from all over the world.
It is very important for us to bring people together, and to build up a stronger understanding of the arts.
The program will be run in partnership with the Japanese government and a Japanese-American artist in the Milwaukee area.
The program will include a variety of instruments, ranging from a Guira, a Guirasque and a Guiron, to the traditional Japanese sword, which is a piece of wood with a string attached.
The project is intended to encourage people to play and learn more about the arts, Sohn said.
It is a project that will help people who have been struggling in the past with finding an instrument, said Sohn.
We will also have a very small team who will be able share their expertise with the students to make sure they get the instrument they want to play.
Matsuko Kondo, a first-year student at the Japanese-owned UW-Madison, said she was excited to learn to play the instruments on her own.
She said it was a very rewarding experience for her.
“It’s something that I would really like to be doing for the rest of my life, so it’s something I’m really excited about,” Kondo said.
The Japanese-Americans are not alone in their interest in learning the instruments.
Last month, the American Society of Musical Instruments launched a new program, the Japanese Cultural Instrument Training Program.
