Tomoko Ohno, born in Tokyo, began piano studies at the age of 4.  As a teenager, she began playing professionally in the Tokyo area jazz scene.  After graduating from Rikkyo University in Law and Politics, Miss Ohno moved to the United States and entered the Jazz Studies Program at William Paterson University in New Jersey, where she studied with Harold Mabern and  Rufus Reid.  During this time she had the opportunity to perform with such artists as Jerome Richardson, Wynton Marsalis, Benny Golson and Joe Henderson.  A recipient of the Student Award of Outstanding Performance and a member of the Dean’s List, Miss Ohno graduated with a B.A. in Jazz Studies.

She has performed at Lincoln Center, Weill Recital Hall of Carnegie Hall, The Blue Note, Sweet Basil and The Lenox Lounge in Harlem, in addition to appearing on live radio broadcasts by WBGO and WNYC, and ABC TV's Good Morning America.  She has performed and/or recorded with Slide Hampton, Claudio Roditi, James Spaulding, Rufus Reid, The John Lee Quartet, The Dizzy Gillespie Alumni Big Band and Sherry Maricle and the Diva Jazz Orchestra, as well as working as a side musician with such diverse musical ensembles as the Harlem Spiritual Ensemble and The Spirit of Life Ensemble.

Miss Ohno also leads her own group, and has released three CDs on the Japan-based Tokuma label.  In 1997 her first album, “Powder Blue” was released, and in 1999 her second album, “Affirmation” was released, followed in 2000 by the album "Natural Woman."  Her album "Shadows of Spring" (recorded in Argentina) was released by MDR Records in 2005. Her latest album "Tomoko Ohno in Buenos Aires" was also released by MDR Records in 2007. Her new album is scheduled to be released in 2011 spring.

Miss Ohno is also active as a composer, and has been the recipient of a grant from The Meet The Composer Foundation.  Commissioned works include pieces written for the Englewinds Chamber Ensemble.
