Interview with former student Shota Nakama

In an interview with Zack Wheat of 4Player Network, Shota Nakama speaks about his work as founder of the acclaimed Japanese Video Orchestra, and what he gained from studying classical guitar:

SN: I was in Oregon in 2005, and I had an opportunity to study with Peter Zisa, who is one of the very best classical guitar teachers I have ever met. He is pretty much the reason why I got hooked with this whole classical guitar thing. I did continue taking classical guitar lessons from Apostolos Parazkevas in Berklee.  After Berklee I went to The Boston Concervatory where I received a master’s degree in Classical Guitar Performance in 2012.
