A "guitar concert" with a free invitation will be held on May 31, 2009 at Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture.

A guitar academy in Nagoya which operates five classrooms in Nagoya City and other cities, sponsors it.

Masaaki Kimura (39) from the Nagoya City, hard of hearing since four years old, will play the guitar solo in the concert. He is a company employee.

It is the fourth that Kimura stands in the concert hosted by the academy. He says that he can do the performance with zeal by counting on the sound of the bowstring transmitted directly to the body though he doesn't hear the sound of the guitar that he plays.

He says, "I had a hard time to learn how to move the fingers that strum the guitar while seeing the DVD. I would like to please many listeners at the upcoming concert".
