TSENG CHENGWEI From Taiwan
Graduated from Advanced Guitar Course in 2020
I wanted to improve my knowledge and skills related to music, so I enrolled ESP GAKUEN. At first I was not confident in Japanese, so I was worried about the class, but when I actually started the school, my teachers and classmates treated me very kindly. While I was in school, I formed a band with my Japanese friends and talked a lot about music together, made original songs and performed on the stage. The most memorable thing is that I won the guitar contest in my second year, and I could have a very good career in composition and performance. It has been a kind of good experience.
Now, while working as a guitar instructor in Taiwan, I am continuing my music activities as a session musician.
It is difficult to teach someone, but I work hard every day based on what I have learned at ESP.
