Armin Lohbeck
Cello and Kinko-ryu Shakuhachi




Guten Tag

As a professional musician from Germany, living in Japan, I am open for concert engagements and offer lessons for cello and shakuhachi. Lessons can be for children, adults, beginner or advanced and the teaching language is possible in English, German or Japanese.



Cello チェロ

As a professional cellist from Germany, I graduated from the Musikhochschule Detmold and learned from renowned teachers like Irene Güdel and Anner Bylsma. Today, I live in Japan as a freelancer, playing among other at the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra and offer Cello lessons in the Tokyo area. Concert engagements are welcomed.

Having studied the shakuhachi since 1994 I received the traditional master license Shihan and the name Kyûmei from the Kinko-ryu Chikumeisha branch. With concert experience as a soloist and in traditional ensembles I am open for concert engagements and offer shakuhachi lessons in the Tokyo area and via Skype.
