About players:

Jeff Hodges : Shakuhachi

Jeff Hodges began doing research in ethnomusicology at the
<span>University of North Texas</span>, receiving his master&rsquo;s degree in the fall of
2010. His studies in this field cultivated an interest in Japanese
music that grew from years of experiences in Aikido and Zen studies.
This attraction to traditional <span>Japanese aesthetics</span> came to fruition
when he began studying shakuhachi in the Kinko-ryu style under David
Duncavage in the fall of 2009. Jeff has taught music in public schools
since 1996, and currently teaches band at Ojeda Middle School.

Mutsuko Myslinski : Okinawa Sanshin (Shamisen)

Mutsuko Myslinski became fascinated by Okinawa Sanshin during a visit to <span>Okinawa</span> when she had the chance to listen to shamisen music. She practiced the Okinawa Sanshin under the instruction of Takashi Shimoji in <span>Japan</span> for two years.

Nancy Parker : Vocal and keyboard accompaniment

Nancy Parker performed "Songs of Japan with Keyboard
Accompaniment" at the JASGA April Cultural Salon in 2010. She received
a <span>Bachelor of Music</span> in Applied Voice from <span>the University of Texas at
Austin</span>.
