Mayumi Miyata

org, JP
Musician of Classical
A.k.a. 宮田 まゆみ

Mayumi Miyata (宮田 まゆみ Miyata Mayumi, born Tokyo, Japan) is a Japanese player of the shō, a traditional Japanese mouth organ.She is a graduate of the Kunitachi College of Music, where she majored in piano. While in school, she began studying gagaku music from Ono Tadamaro of the Imperial Household Agency.Although the shō is generally associated with Japan's ancient gagaku court music, Miyata was among the first players of the instrument to specialize in contemporary classical music. She plays a specially constructed instrument with extra pipes, allowing for the use of more chromaticism.
