Episodes of the Japanese comedy/drama Nodame Cantabile (のだめカンタービレ) are now up on YouTube:

Some background info from Wikipedia:

Nodame Cantabile

“Shinichi Chiaki is the top piano student at his university and an excellent violinist, but Chiaki doesn’t care about playing these instruments as much as he dreams of someday being a conductor. Chiaki, however, has several deeply rooted fears about traveling, and so finds himself “trapped” in Japan. Because he’s trapped, Chiaki starts to question exactly how far he can possibly go in music, especially when he’s passed over again and again for others he thinks are less worthy of musical scholarship and fame.”

Here in the states Del Rey has also come out with the manga version which inspired the tv show:
