Hi! I'm a working musician living in Brooklyn, I grew up in Japan and I graduated from Berklee College of Music where I studied bass performance. I'm currently endorsed by Michael Tobias Design (MTD USA), La Bella Strings, and recently was given the honor of hosting a bass seminar with Paul Jackson (The Headhunters) in Japan. I have worked with many notable artists including Rotimi, Skales Bisa Kdei, Okeame Kwame, Ycee, Efya, Praiz, 9ice, DJ Tunez to name a few. Also I have made to the final of the audition for Desiigner. I have been tutoring Bass for several years and have experience working in music education roles with organizations like CampJam. The main issues I discuss and focus on with all my students are bass oriented theory, ear training, technique, reading music, improvisation, and expanding your song repertoire. I encourage all my students to bring in any classic bass lines of any different styles to laern and help them to develop a love for music!
I can't give Junichi enough praise! I would add value and punctuality if they let me. Junichi is the teacher you are looking for! He is patient but he pushes me to be the best bass player I can be. In the last few months I've seen marked improvement in all areas of musicianship in reading ability, ear training and physical dexterity on the bass. Junichi is always prepared for class and communicates well during the class. Definitely check him out! You'll love it!
