koto lesson

i had my first koto lesson. I got several bits of notation, which is the thing I'm most starving for. That and basic technique. It's a good thing I know kanji numbers because anytime I hit the last three strings (To I Kin) I was lost because didn't know the kanji for them.

I feel like I should make an enlgish notation page for anyone else like me who don't have access to a teacher.

There was a bit of a language barrier, but she had a little translator bo for the words she didn't know and I have a pretty good understanding of things by just being shown.

I wasn't sure I could afford $50 a month for lessons, but they said I could do a half hour instead, which does seem with in the budget.
