Music has the power to heal! Kimberly interviews Makiko Hirata, "Dr. Pianist," on the power of music to encourage empathy, connection, and the brain-boosting benefits of biomusicology.
In this episode, you will learn…
An international pianist and recording artist, Makiko Hirata is “Dr. Pianist,” on a mission to promote music and musicians as healing agents in this world.
As a consultant to Houston Methodist Hospital’s Center for Performing Arts Medicine, she collaborates with neuroscientists to quantify the benefit of music. She writes, gives lecture-concerts, and facilitates workshops on biomusicology, and its power to encourage empathy, reminding us how what we share is greater than our differences. She is a US-Japan Leadership Program Fellow.
Dr. Hirata has given recitals, lectures, concerto performances and outreach concerts in the Americas, Europe and her native Japan with ensembles and artists, such as the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra, the Pecs Hungarian Symphony Orchestra, conductor Leon Fleisher, and clarinetist David Krakauer. Passionate about sharing music not just through performances, she has also taught at New York University, Colburn Conservatory of Music, Rice University, and Lone Star College, and given master classes and lectures internationally.
Dr. Hirata is a Shigeru Kawai Artist.
