Member of the Year 2017

Fumi Nakayama 

KMTA is pleased to announce Fumi Nakayama as Member of the Year!

Fumi has been an essential part of our program success, aiding us in our "Hands On" study of classical keyboards and Dalcroze Eurhythmics. Fumi is an ultimate expert in these subjects and a great liason with Carthage College. They say if you want something done, ask a busy person, and they were probably referring to Fumi Nakayama!

 Fumi earned her BM in piano and harpsichord from Chicago Musical College of Roosevelt University, MM in Piano and Early Music/Harpsichord from Indiana University. As a conductor, Fumi conducted the Indiana University Symphony Orchestra, among others. She worked as an opera coach for Indiana University Opera Theaterfor 6 years. Fumi Nakayama is an adjunct faculty member of both Carthage College and University of Wisconsin Parkside and a member of the Cecilia Trio. She is also a Julliard School certified instructor of Dalcroze Eurhythmics. 

These are just some of the highlights of Fumi's extensive background.
