Artist Profile

  • Mamiko Hirai

    Mamiko majored in piano at Toho Gakuen Music High School and also Toho Gakuen College in Tokyo. Today she works with a wide spectrum of artists, creators, and musicians to compose and perform musical melodies that best illustrate and evoke emotions reflective of the most memorable moments of life. She has composed music for the film and television industry, and focuses on her solo piano concerts, creating a series of albums containing her "Piano Diary". They are psychological portraits via the piano, taking a closer look at the very essence of the soul and inner being. They are an artistic expression of the whim of the heart, provoking nostalgia, deep emotions, and a sentimental feeling relative to all. Her most recent album, Towards a Dream, was released in the spring of 2013. Mamiko's works have been recognized internationally and in 2012 she received the S&R Washington Award. She has also composed and performed for the opening ceremony of the 2017 National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC. Mamiko is now based in Tokyo and is seeking opportunities to further expand globally. She hopes that this website can provide a place for people to experience some of her music, style, and imagery.
