I would like to express my deepest sympathies for everyone who struggles with COVID-19.
Thank you for visiting the website of the Music High School Attached to the Faculty of Music, Tokyo University of the Arts (Geikō). I am Kaoruko YAMASHITA, the principal from April 2020.
Geikō is the unique national high school of music in Japan, located in the Ueno Cultural Park. The number of students is about 120, and they spend their time improving themselves with the dream of becoming professional musicians.
Tokyo University of the Arts established Geikō with the purpose of an early childhood special music education in 1954. Many graduates perform music globally since then.
In 2016, Geikō was designated as a Super Global High School (SGH) by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. We have been enhancing the development of global human resources from the following perspectives: ‘originality,’ ‘diversity,’ and ‘independence.’
This year, we are forced to give up some of the school events to prevent coronal infection. We consider this is the time to store up students’ energy in preparation for the post-COVID-19 world. I do hope that the pandemic will be over soon, and we will show the educational outcomes.
