Japanese Level at Admission / N2
Q.What kind of career path did you take after graduating from TCJ? Also, please tell us the reason why you chose your career path.
I entered the graduate school of Tokyo College of Music as a master's student. Originally, I studied "Morin khuur", a folk music of Mongolian people. This university is dedicated to the study of Japanese traditional music, and in 2020 it will establish a new field of "Multicultural Music Research" to study the development of various types of traditional music in modern society. I chose this university because these were the things I wanted to study.

Q.What are your goals and dreams for the future? Please be as specific as possible.
I would like to continue my studies. After finishing my master's degree, I would like to continue my doctoral studies and do more in-depth research on the traditional music I am currently studying. Nowadays, a lot of traditional music in both China and Japan has been forgotten and the music is losing its characteristics. I would like to pass on these unique traditional music to the next generation.

Q.Please give some advice to students who will join TCJ in the future and current students based on your experience.
I think it is very important to study Japanese before coming to TCJ. If you don't have a good foundation in Japanese, you may find it difficult to learn Japanese when you first come to Japan. After entering the school, you can study at TCJ's self-study room outside of class time, so if you make good use of it, you will be able to improve yourself more quickly. Also, I want you to speak a lot of Japanese. Don't worry about whether your Japanese is correct or not, the teachers at TCJ are very kind and helpful. Please check the website of the school you want to go to for further education. Your teacher will give you personalized guidance and interview preparation.
