Simon Hutchinson '02

He majored in Music and took JPN 101 ~ 202. After graduating from Bates, he got a position of teaching English in Iwate-ken through Earlham College. He is Australian, so it was hard to apply for the JET program in the U.S. He was interested in playing ‘Tsugaru Shamisen’ (a Japanese music instrument), so I think he is learning it in Japan. <by Ofuji, 1-10-06>
