Kubo san, I was fortunate enough to hear you play while you were in Sydney, near the Opera House. I must say that to this day, you are one of the most soulful and skillful guitar players I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. I am wondering, would you ever consider playing elsewhere in the States, particularly in my state of Alabama? It would be a great honor to host a concert for you in one of the many concert halls we have here. Very respectfully, - Paul Thornton

Seriously people, this is no joke. Yesterday while I was at the Santa Monica Beach I saw the best classical guitarist I have ever heard playing at the end of the pier for tips. His name is Shogo Kubo and is from Japan. He studied in Spain for a year. I hope that someone can help him so that he can be performing for audiences around the world on a stage where this guy belongs. He is definitely a master guitarist. I am posting this here because I know there are many people here who really appreciate talented guitarists. I hope that anyone who is in the L.A. area and loves great guitar playing will go to hear this guy. - JanetK
I recommend Shogo to everyone at all levels, from beginning to advanced, and at all ages.
I have known Shogo because my friend in music school (composition major whose primary instrument is a guitar) takes lessons from him. This summer I started taking lessons from him as well because playing guitar is a requirement for the music therapy program. Although I have some experience in music, playing guitar was totally a new thing. Despite that, within a few months, my skills improved dramatically thanks to my teacher (: The best part of taking lessons from Shogo was that he knew how to work out with students with relatively small hands. My hands are small like elementary school kids'. Therefore, I had difficulties playing some chords at first, but he worked things out! So, obviously Shogo can teach beginners like me as well as college-level students like my friend, and even small kids! He is an experienced teacher who can guide each student step by step to achieve their individual goals. By the way, Shogo is an exceptional performer too. His interpretation is unique, and his performance is always very musical! So, if someone wants to brush up their expression in music, Shogo is the right person to learn from (: - Starla
Shogo is patience, attentiveness and encouraging me always, finds a way to attach the lessons to actual songs so it makes it easier to learn and all my questions are answered in great detail. very reliable and responsible I'd highly recommend him to anybody. - Yuki
I've been taking lessons with Shogo for the past 10 years. glad I found him always look forward to my lessons, he is an awesome and thoughtful teacher. - Robert
He is a very patient, talented teacher, highly recommend. - Josh
禁じられた遊びのテーマを聞いておやっと思った 旋律がこちらの心の痛いところに切れ込んでくる 次はアランフェス これが全く 驚きで よく耳にする毒にも薬にもならないＪウイリアムス風とは対極にあるような迫力の和音で 虚空をさまよい続けている 曲としては壊れているのだが 魅力にあふれこちらの耳をとらえて離さない 男はどこか遠くの音を聞くようにして目を閉じていて自分の指の動きはとうに忘れているようだった 彼の名前は久保聖吾 北海道 帯広でギター教室を持っていたらしい ホテルの部屋にいて頭の中を彼の弾いた（ディアハンター）や（禁じられた遊び）がいつまでも鳴っている クラシックギターの音はあまり好きでなかったのに彼のメロディーが残っている 音もちがいいというか 耳がいいのだろう だからひっぱっても曲が続くヴィラロボスもアストリアスもかっちりまとまってあざやか よい先生についたのだろう それにしてもやはり才能だろうと思う 昨日は私の賞賛に困ったように笑っていたが本人にしてみたら別段意識してやっていることではないかもしれない 帯広のギター教室の先生が故郷も国も捨てて世界に出る そうせざるをえないような才能があるのは間違いのないことのように思えた 久保聖吾氏のＣＤを繰り返し聞いているが なんだかすごくいいと感じる 外国旅行にいると 普段自分の体にまとわりついているぬるま湯のようなものがなくなって 全身ひりひりしている だから絵を見ても音楽を聴いても異様に反応してしまうものだが 彼のギターというか音楽は日本にあっても私の心の奥に答えてくれているようだ - 笠原 三冬
