He participated in planning for the establishment of Concord Executive Group(http://concord-group.co.jp/)in 2007, and assumed the role of representative director. Established EYS-STYLE Co., Ltd. based on the Yoko-Chin Band in 2008. Following that, he started various projects from scratch such as the instrument present for new members and Music Girl, accepting continuous challenges which brought about a paradigm shift in the industry. The unique method garnered a response from many customers, and membership numbers increased favorably. In order to realize the goal for each customer to Enjoy Your Sound, he is currently striving to bring in a new phase revolving around the three industries of continuing the Music Activity platform evolved on the Web from the EYS Music School, the e-commerce site Otolier which connects customers to instruments and workshops around the world, and the start-up of the Kono Yubi Tomare platform which fulfills the need for IT innovation.

Message from the Representative Director

To realize Enjoy Your Sound for each person

The establishment of our EYS-STYLE was prompted by the way a group of amateurs gathered with each of their instruments, and in less than a year succeeded in a big band live event in front of 200 people at the International Forum.
Everyone who participated played their instrument, sang, and expressed themselves untill their heart’s content—what we witnessed from this scene was the fact that in their hearts, everyone has music that they alone want to play.
To respond to those latent individual needs, EYS-STYLE was born.
At EYS Music School, which was the beginning of our services, we started the instrument present for everyone and the Kono Yubi Tomare band activities you can participate in from just one song, and our various services designed from the customer standpoint, such as the teacher change system by worry-free request, were all created from the idea of realizing Enjoy Your Sound for each person.
After that, in a format which anticipated the evolution of the Web and smartphones, we have repeatedly challenged ourselves and had failures in expanding the members of Enjoy Your Sound throughout the world on the platforms of the Project for Free Musical Instruments in the World, and Music Activity & Yubi-Toma.
Globalization and the use of IT are accelerating, and in our current time of remarkable change, the original idea has not changed. Along with creating chances for musicians of the world to connect with instruments worldwide through globalization, and changing playing instruments into something familiar, based on maximizing use of IT possibilities to implement Enjoy Your Sound, and also contributing to the development of the business world, from here on we will continue to take our efforts to the next level.
