Hajime Tanioka (谷岡 肇 Tanioka Hajime) is a piano teacher at Momogaoka, said to specialize in "drop-out" students.
He has black hair and eyes. He wears transparent glasses and also seems to have thick, black eyebrows. He also has a pale skin tone.
He is a piano teacher who is said to specialize on "drop-out" students, probably due to his kindness and words for motivation. He simply motivates his students by letting them do what they like to do for class (except for bad acts, of course) like letting Nodame finish her project, "Little Miss Frizzy" for a children's play.
