Testu was an excellent teacher. He was patient, kind, encouraging and very knowledgeable. He helped me to prepare for auditions, develop a practice routine and find more enjoyment in playing!

Tetsuya is not only a talented musician, as many people already know, but he is also an incredibly kind and patient teacher. He taught my son not only about technique and musicianship but also the love and fun that can be had through music. He knew the level that my son was at and guided him through his learning and this allowed my son to continuously improve. My son was incredibly luckily to have Tetsuya as his first teacher.

I have known Tetsuya for many years now having gone to high school with him. It was incredibly inspiring to watch him not only perform, but also teach my brother trumpet as well. He was an incredibly patient and kind teacher and helped my brother improve not only on his technical skills and passion for music, but also his confidence in his abilities to play the instrument. He is a kind-hearted, compassionate and patient person and this translates into his music and his teaching.
