Chuugaku no supeingo kyoushi desu. Gaikokugo no benkyou ga suki desu. Quechua-go to Itaria-go mo benkyou shiteimasu. Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!

Just how much of a Karaoke addict are you?

My passion is singing J-karaoke, so much that I have been teaching an online class for over 4 years called "Learn Japanese Through Music." I go to NYC regularly to sing at the karaoke bars.

Where is your favorite place to sing Karaoke?

Right now Karaoke Duet 48... I can't wait to check out Karaoke Duet 53! Karaoke Duet 48 is awesome because they use the Premier Dam system, which is automatically updated with the latest songs from Japan.

Which are your favorite Japanese and English artists or music genres to sing in?

J-rock and J-pop! Some of my favorite artists include L'Arc~en~Ciel, Dir en Grey, NICO Touches the Walls, The GazettE, Gackt, Utada Hikaru, Kalafina and Scandal. Teaching the music class exposes me to a wide range of Japanese artists. I can't wait to hear your favorites so that they can become mine as well!

How did you hear about this group?

I created it since there is nothing like it on Meetup.com.

Introduction

I have been studying Japanese for over 5 years as a result of having fallen in love with J-pop and J-rock, as well as anime and J-drama.

What Lauren A. is saying about this Meetup Group

I've been wanting to create this group for quite some time being that I have been organizing events just like it for other people's meetup.com groups. I love being a part of singing together and sharing culture and language!
