Under the tutelage of Italian luthier Maestro Roberto. Regazzi, Yamashita learned the craft of string instrument repairs and restorations in Bologna, Italy.
IL Violino Magico has provided services from students to professional musicians such as Maxim Vengerov and Mayu Kishima for over ten years. Since their grand opening to Hawaii, Magico is dedicated to utilizing their resources in providing the highest quality of instruments and inspiring students by bringing world-class artists.

Miura began his studies under Tsugio Tokunaga in Japan before moving to Vienna to study with Pavel Vernikov and Julian Rachlin. Since 2009, he has been mentored under Pinchas Zukerman.
Founded by Ellen Masaki in 1953, the Masaki School of Music has established itself as one of Hawaii's leading music schools. Private lessons in piano, violin, viola, cello, guitar, and voice are taught by highly qualified and dedicated teachers who custom tailor lessons to meet the diverse needs of their students.
