About Mana

I have given flute lessons since 1993, and Japanese lessons since 1995. I am a native Japanese speaker, and I have worked as a professional interpreter since 1999. I am a professional flutist, and I am currently on the faculty at the All Newton Music School in West Newton.

I am a very experienced, caring teacher. I have taught students at all levels (beginner through advanced). I take a flexible, creative approach individually tailored to each student’s needs.

I have received my flute performance degrees from the Oberlin Conservatory, the Boston University School for the Arts, and the Tokyo University of Fine Arts Music.

I give 30 minute, 45 minute, and 60 minute lessons depending on each student's needs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Flute

I have taught at the All Newton Music School since 2002, and I have taught privately since 1993. I have 3 degrees (BM, AD, and MM) in flute performance. I am also certified to teach junior high & high school music classes in Japan.

I emphasize good tone production as well as sight-reading and theory skills.

Japanese

In addition to private lessons, I have also taught classes. The most recent is the Japanese class for the New England JET Program (The Japan Exchange and Teaching Program) alumni, which is funded by the Consulate General of Japan. I have been teaching this class since 2009.

I also help students who are preparing for JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test).
