We had the good fortune of connecting with Kazuki Tokaji and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kazuki, what do you think makes you most happy? Why?
When I playing guitar on live show. I can see everyone’s face from stage. That makes me so happy. And T-bone steak & orange juice
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I started playing guitar since when I was 7 years old. Practiced 4-8hours every day. I met my mentor Dean Brown at Musicians Institute Hollywood. His private lesson changed whole my musical skill and groove. He found my strong point & weak point and explained, taught me really well. I took his private lesson & counseling 2 or 3 days per week. Sometimes I skipped other class and took his lesson. That made huge difference.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I definitely take my friend to Santa Monica beach. My most favorite place. I go there every week.
