PAY RANGE:Quite flexible.

Have performed often over the years around Princeton, and also in Manhattan. Some highlights include the Coalition For Peace Action's Nagasaki/Hiroshima Memorial (5 years running);  Yearly Lunar New Year and MidAutumn Festival recitals at Holsome Tea in Princeton; the Rutgers Japanese club's Sakura Matsuri; doing a history/background lecture and performance for High School Japanese classes in Newark; providing music for Shumei New York events; and accompanying the NY Sawai Koto Academy at the Tokyo Fiesta in Grand Central Station.   (with the caveat that the recordings there are from 4 years ago and i  sound much different now. Have to make some new ones!!)
