*Gayaguem : Korea’s respresentitive traditional instrument Do you wanna join my one day Gayaguem Class? Here’s what you’ll learn! At the beginning of the class, I’ll show you playing Gayaguem with a breif introduction of instrument. You can enjoy my short Gayaguem performance while tasting a Korean traditional tea. After that, you’ll learn how to play “Arirang” with Gayaguem, but this can be changed as requested. There is a special way to sit down for Gayaguem, so you’ll get there first. Once you practice enough to make a string sound with me, you will learn some advanced techniques such as vibrations. Playing Arirang will be amazingly easy even for the very-beginners, so you don’t need to worry about anything before the class. Moreover, you’ll recieve a video of yourself playing Gayaguem, which will be the best Korean souvenir ever! The maximum student number that I teach for each class is two, which means you will receive a professional Gayaguem lesson from your dedicated teacher. It might become a good guideline if you can listen to “Arirang” prior to the class. I’ll link a youtube video down below. https://youtu.be/-SRfA7ISqFI (Youtube channel ‘Hyunjoo in Seoul’)
Hi! My name is Hyunjoo, and I am doing my master degree in music teaching in Seoul. I majored Gayaguem for my bachelor degree, and I have been playing Gayaguem for more than a decade now. Gayaguem is one of the most well-known Korean traditional instruments, and you will love the clean and beautiful sound of 12-strings. I am teaching Gayaguem in the heart of Seoul - Hongdae. So dear all the airbnb folks in Seoul, South Korea - I am now inviting you to an exotic experience — learning Gayaguem in Korean/English! If you want to indulge the beauty of travel and immerse in the authentic Korean culture, you are in the right place. The one-day Gayaguem class will navigate you to play a simple Korean song — you can play an entire song in ONE DAY with Gayaguem. Take a video of you playing a song with Gayaguem and show it off!

It’s a cozy rooftop studio. The studio is walking distance from the Hapjeong station, located at level 5, and sorry we have no lifter. The one day class at the rooftop studio will bring you to the authentic life of the young generation in South Korea.
