Click here for a video of the new Toyota partner robot playing Elgar's Land of Hope and Glory on violin. At the end the announcer says "From now on it will practise and improve."
More about it from Toyota here.

Another robot at Tokyo University was taught folk dances and could eventually be used to document and preserve them. Article here. Video here.
