My name is Ryoji and I'm a musician living in Los Angeles. I work as a musician for children (including birthday parties), give weekly music classes for individual kids and families, and compose songs.
I've been performing music for children since my son was born in 2009, starting at Westchester Parents' Nursey School in Los Angeles.
In my classes, the participants use musical instruments from all over the world, including the Djembe, Balafon, Ukulele, Shakers, and many more, all unique and authentic and beautiful .
My familiarity with these wonderful musical Instruments comes from my work as a Music Technician at Motherland Music, an African Musical Instruments shop in Inglewood.
I concentrate on songs for children and families from all over the world, including Nursery Rhymes and other musical fun, and of course, Classic Rock!
While raising my two daughters, we have literally attended hundreds of classes. You name it, we've tried it. Ryoji's class however is completely unique, a cut above the rest. He is an incredibly kind teacher, patient and fun, and extremely engaging. He understands children in a special way, and lets them express themselves fully, bringing dozens of instruments and props to help them do so. My daughters both sing the songs they learned from Ryoji all the time, and look forward to each class. We've even scheduled school around Ryoji's classes. Our family is so grateful for him.
