Shiko Onodela is the President of the Japan Music Trades Magazine. This monthly magazine was established in 1962 by Mr. Rikuro Hiyama to support the music industry and to encourage sharing of ideas. When Mr. Hiyama approached John Majeski, the editor of The Music Trades Magazine (established in 1890 in New York) asking if he could use the name Japan Music Trades, Mr. Majeski cordially agreed. Shiko-san has followed Mr. Hiyama's vision and has helped expand the scope by incorporating new technologies such as a digital format for the magazine and webinars to bring people together to discuss important topics such as music education. As a guitarist with a background in both music retail and distribution, Shiko-san brings an important perspective to the magazine, while fulfilling the goals of Mr. Hiyama of increasing the number of music makers.
