About me

Hello.  I am Shigemi, a pianist, flautist, composer and arranger in Northern California, USA.  

I was classically trained in my youth in Japan and started jazz at an adult age when I came to the U.S. about 20 years ago.  I have been gigging ever since.  

Besides jazz, I also love and play AfroCuban and salsa music.  

My new goal for the year 2023 is to start gigging in the bay area, to experience something new, to challenge myself and grow as a musician. If you have a gig for me, please contact me....!
