In addition to maintaining a private studio, Kanako is also on faculty at the Univ of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music Prep Department, Starling String Project and Cincinnati Strings. Kanako enjoys working with children and adults of all ages and offers lessons in the Greater Cincinnati area, as well as via Skype. 


"Kanako has been an engaging & inspiring teacher for my 5-year old. She finds ways to make the weekly 30-minute lesson fun. My daughter has been making steady progress and really enjoyed performing at the most recent recital." 

- Flannery H.

"She has a wonderful approach with children and does a great job at engaging my daughter and keeping her focused throughout her lesson. I've been amazed at the progress that my daughter has made and I attribute much of that to Kanako's teaching style." 

- Laura W.

"I’m so lucky to have found Kanako as a violin teacher. It’s easy to feel relaxed and be myself around her. Also, the way she teaches and explains things makes so much sense. It takes time for me to get the techniques down but I have never struggled to understand what she is trying to teach me. She’s very encouraging and patient! I hope to learn from her for a long time."

- Chelsea D.

"Her professionalism and knowledge of the violin exceeded my expectations. She was able to target my problem areas and provide exercises to remedy them."
