Faculty Highlights: Shiho Kurauchi


In her own words:

“I teach a traditional Japanese 13-string instrument called the Koto at Music Center. I enjoy teaching as Music Center because there is a wide range of music classes, and the organization is committed to its mission to engage with the community. In my lessons, I try to create a positive learning environment to encourage my students to enjoy studying and practicing music. This approach is especially effective with children.

In the past I have taught at a middle school located in Japan, as well as at Nikkei Manor in Seattle. I also have taught my own private classes. In addition to classes and lessons, I have done demonstrations and performances of Koto at several preK-12 public and private schools in the Seattle area, as well as at public libraries.”
