I met today’s American at a video shoot a few years ago at the quaint Trianon Theater in San Jose California.  A beautiful little theater built in 1923.

Jon Nakamatsu talks about what it means to follow your heart and to listen to your own voice and why he was he drawn to the piano.  Where did the desire come from?  What did he have to give up to be successful?  The lessons are the same for each of us.  Jon’s passion for music and the piano is singular, and I think you’ll enjoy hearing what goes though the mind of a concert pianist while on stage performing.

You can check out his music and more of his story at
