Welcome to LiVEJAM

LiVEJAM will be closing permanently at the end of May, 2021.

Thanks for All the great memories!

Who we are?

International Music School in Tokyo

Founded in 2010 as a “school of rock” for teenagers in Toritsu Daigaku.

Inspired by the movie School of Rock, Founder/Director Ken Takagi wished to provide a venue for a performance-based band school for teenagers in Japan.


  • Take lessons with professional English-speaking instructors from around the world.
  • Since the school was designed for younger students in primary, middle and high schools, we understand the needs of this generation and have staffed with instructors who can be like their big brothers and sisters.
  • Performance opportunities several times a year, keeping your momentum high.
  • It’s easy to meet friends your age who you could form bands with.
  • Great place to meet and interact with local Japanese students.
  • Flexibility to take lessons in any instruments/class according to your interest and needs.
  • Free use of studio for practicing in our operating hours.


Instruments for rock/pop bands, or horns for jazz and concert band, or singing or music making lessons. Which one is for you? 

Which instrument/program is for you?

We at LiVEJAM set live performances as goals where you will get to express yourself through music, whether by yourself or as a band.

But your background/experience and expectations may determine where you start. Here are some tips on how you can get started based on your experience.

  1. No previous experience with instruments, but know which instrument you wish to play.
  2. No previous experience with instruments, and not sure which instrument to pick.
  3. Some experience with instruments and wish to improve and find band members.


"I started to realize how much I was enjoying singing in LiVEJAM."

I always liked singing in front of people, but could not quite sing the way I imagined nor perform on stage as I had hoped to. On top of that, I was constantly conscious of how the audience percieved my performance, therefore was afraid to fully express my self on stage.

That’s when I found LiVEJAM. The trial lesson was eye opening, as the teacher really got me to open up, not only vocally, but also emotionally, that I started to realize how much I was enjoying singing.

The teacher is really good at making me feel comfortable and helped me to sing without holding back. Singing has really become a great joy. The atmosphere of LiVEJAM is so international and comfortable. The lesson rooms are colorful and fun. Really glad I found LiVEJAM!

"The knowledge and experience of the songwriting teacher was so incredible!"

I used to write songs on my own, mainly techno and club music, but I took a trial lesson here in hopes to improve my ability. The knowledge and experience of the songwriting teacher was so incredible that I registered for the school immediately. After learning so much about sonar and musical equipment, I can now compose professional sounding songs, and rock out at JAMOUTs as an onstage DJ.

"To perform at professional venues is always so exciting!"

I found LiVEJAM through Facebook. I used to take lessons at major music schools but I was unable to enjoy it especially because they were group lessons. But when I took LiVEJAM's trail lesson, I was surprised how different this school was from anything else I had experienced. First off, the school offers private lessons in english, making the communication during the lessons very efficient. Second off, students can set their lesson schedules flexibly, so not to miss lessons for club activities or exams. And more than anything else, the JAMOUTs which allows us to perform at professional venues is always so exciting. It is a very casual atmosphere and I hope to make more and more friends in the future.
