He holds master's and doctoral degrees in both orchestral and choral conducting from Stanford, and a bachelor's degree in piano performance and theory from San Jose State University. An accomplished pianist, Dr. Sano has won numerous piano competitions, served as accompanist to many leading artists visiting the Bay Area, and as harpsichordist with the International Chamber Orchestra of Rome.

Between 1985 and 1988, he was Organ Scholar at St John's College, Cambridge, where he studied with the great British virtuoso, Nicholas Kynaston.
