I have renewed my website.



SPOONFUL MUSIC was established in 1995 in Shinsaibashi, Osaka, as a jazz school by jazz pianist Komay Shibata.

With the motto of "Jazz that enriches and frees life," our school has produced over 3,000 graduates in 20 years in Shinsaibashi, 5 years in Abeno, and since 2020 in Yoshino Town, Nara Prefecture.

Many of our graduates continue to enjoy jazz as amateur musicians and thrive as professional and semi-professional artists.

Thank you for visiting the Spoonful Music website. I'm Komay Shibata, the representative and instructor.

I went to the United States at the age of 24 in 1978 and have been performing in various places with people from various countries since studying jazz at the Berklee College of Music.

It's often said that music has no borders, and jazz, where you can stand on stage and enjoy performing with someone you've just met, is indeed a universal language.

Through music, to a broader, larger, and freer world.

And to the profound world of music.

Thus far, I've had long, numerous journeys through jazz.

I've visited many places, met many people, and also encountered parts of myself I didn't know.

There have been times when I've been shattered by many dreams, but I've achieved far more dreams.

For me, jazz was a ticket to a journey of dreams and adventures.

My dream and adventure continue as I pass the same ticket to everyone who visits this school. If you pick up this ticket, we are fellow travelers.

As a slightly more experienced traveler, there's nothing I'd be happier to do than to help you fulfill your musical dreams, and to share the joy of connecting through music, and the joy of connecting with music.

Please tell me about the dream you have of "what you want to become."

I will fully support the shortest distance to your dream. I'm waiting for you in Yoshino, home of the thousand cherry trees.

Komay Shibata.
