Mr. Nomura has held a wide variety of teaching positions and assignments.
Here is a brief summary of those teaching roles.
Boston University (1993-1995) Assistant Professor of Voice
Young Concert Artists (1990-1995)
San Francisco Performances (1995-2000)
Duke University, University of San Francisco, University of Maryland, University of Southern
California, and other Universities; music festivals include the Berkshire Choral Festival, Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, Cartagena (Colombia) Music Festival, Takefu (Japan) Music Festival, Tucson Chamber Music Festival, Oregon Bach Festival, Baldwin-Wallace Bach Festival, and other music festival settings.
One of many highlights in teaching was working with the “Poetry in the Schools”
organization to bring classical music to inner city high school students throughout
San Francisco via a five-year Reader’s Digest Grant through San Francisco
Performances. This program provided the opportunity to reconvene with students
multiple times per year for four years to develop a program combining the
poetry of the students with his improvisational vocal contributions.
Private Voice Studio
Mr. Nomura has also enjoyed mentoring and teaching a private studio of vocalists in New York City and New Jersey. Students from these studios have progressed to sing in such prestigious programs as Westminster Choir College, New England Conservatory, Oberlin Conservatory, Boston University and productions on Broadway.
