David M. says, "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!" Read more
