  • My Bio

    Mina is a pianist/composer who is classically trained and is expanding her music variety from jazz, pop, R&B, and rock, pursuing her own style that is blended to the New York City music scene.

    Born in Kanagawa, Japan, Mina started playing piano at the age of 3. She performed piano concerto as a soloist with the Chiba Youth Orchestra at the age of 15. She majored in classical piano at Kunitachi College of Music.

    While she was studying classical music, she discovered an interest in jazz and enrolled in
    the jazz program at the college, where she
    studied jazz piano with Yosuke Yamashita.
    During her academic life, she performed at weddings and several restaurants and hotels regularly.

    In 2008, Mina moved to NY to expand her horizons and to continue her music studies.
    She studied jazz piano under Michael Kanan and Larry Ham. In 2010, she enrolled in the
    City College of New York, where she studied jazz with great musicians, such as John Patitucci,
    Mike Holober and Ray Gallon, and earned her B.F.A in jazz performance in 2012.
    As a student, she received the Fritz Johoda Award two times which is given to a talented pianist.

    Since graduating from the City College of New York, Mina has been playing at several music venues in NY with different bands, including a vocal duo and rock band, where she has been playing as a keyboard/synthesizer player since 2011.

    In addition to performing, Mina composes original songs as well and has recently recorded her piano solos.
