Jumpei Nonaka started taking Miyake Taiko classes when he was six years old. He entered the Kodo Apprentice Centre in 2018 and became a Kodo member in 2021. On stage, Nonaka is mainly featured on taiko and bamboo flutes. He is also honing his skills as a kokyu (Japanese violin) and Nohkan (Noh flute) player. His goal is to become a performer who is meticulous about the sound of each beat he plays. He is striving to depict deep emotions when he plays stringed instruments, too.
