      I'm not quite sure what sort of help you're looking for, exactly. Do
      you currently have a sensei who's teaching you - or is that what's at
      issue? The Toho Koto Society is one of America's largest
      organisational bodies concerning the intrument (www.kotosociety.org);
      and, whilst they may be out of your area, they could provide contacts
      and information regarding someone more local to you. Another good
      source of information is the Japanese Music Institute:

      Finally, let me say the Yoshida Brothers's new CD (self-titled) is
      some of the most innovative - yet traditionally virtuostic - koto
      playing I've ever heard.
