TAKADA, Erika’s comments on winning

I am very happy to have won first place on the Bach International Guitar Contest. Also, I am thankful to the organizers who decided to hold the event even during these difficult times while taking anti-covid measures. I felt happy to have a place where to share music. Also, I hope more people get interested in classical guitar as a result of this being featured in the university’s news.
I will continue to do my best in trying to make better music.
