He did not attend a music conservatory or major in music while he attended college and graduate school. During the summer of 2005, Nakamatsu toured with the San Jose Youth Symphony in Spain, performing the Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2, and in June 2007, he toured with the Peninsula Youth Orchestra to Budapest, Prague, and Teplice playing the same piece.

During the summer of 2008, he also toured with the Stanford Symphony Orchestra to China, playing Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue." Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
