violinist, violist, music coordinator and supervisor


Born in Tokyo, Tomoko started her career as a musician at age twenty, and has since performed and interpreted for internationally renowned artists such as Alan Silvestri, Andrea Bocelli, Alicia Keys, Coldplay, The Verve and more. Her performing experience includes studio recordings and TV soundtracks as well as acting as concert master for the Broadway musical, Amazing Grace and Tokyo productions of Broadway musicals, Spring Awakening and West Side Story.

Tomoko has assisted, coordinated and interpreted for musical productions in the United States, Japan, Germany, Australia, Slovakia, Bulgaria and the Czech Republic. These productions encompass a variety of musical styles, including classical, film, theater, jazz and video game music. She has worked with orchestras such as the Tokyo Philharmonic and the Czech Philharmonic, and on orchestral recording sessions for video game titles such as "Resident Evil 6/Biohazard 6" (CAPCOM) and "Binary Domain" (SEGA). She has also interpreted for six-time Emmy Award winning composer and conductor, Mark Watters, for "Star Wars in Concert," and for Grammy-winning jazz artist, Maria Schneider, at the Tokyo Blue Note.

Using management skills obtained from her extensive musical experience, Tomoko aspires to connect the Japanese and American cultures to one another. In one such instance, she established the Tokyo Strings Workshop as a source for Japanese strings players to learn to play in contemporary American styles like jazz and bluegrass. Additionally, she provides coordination and management services to American artists and companies for their dealings with Japan, and vice versa.
