About Dr Hideaki Onishi

​Dr Onishi received a Ph.D. in music theory in 2004 from the University of Washington (UW) in Seattle, USA. While there, he taught at the UW and University of Puget Sound, Tacoma. He came to Singapore in 2005 and was assistant professor at Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music (YST), National University of Singapore (NUS). He also taught at LaSalle College of the Arts and the School of the Arts (SOTA). Currently, Dr. Onishi currently teaches at the Natinal Institute of Education (NIE), Nanyang Technological University (NTU).

Dr Onishi also holds an MA in historical musicology from Keio University in Tokyo, Japan. This complements his strength in music theory and make his approaches to music more comprehensive and contextual. He has taught music history courses at YST and LaSalle.

Dr Onishi’s credential is made even more unique with his rare experience as a performer and scholar of the Philippine kulintang. He started taking kulintang lessons with ethnomusicologist Dr. Pamela Grace Costes Onishi at the UW and soon began to perform in public. He also had lessons with such master musicians as Danongan Sibay Kalanduyan (a winner of the 1995 National Heritage Fellowship Award by the National Endowment for the Arts, USA), and the University of the Philippines lecturers Kanapia Kalanduyan and Aga Mayo Butocan. After working with Dr Pamela for his interdisciplinary researches, Dr Onishi co-founded Sari-Sari Philippine Kulintang Ensemble in 2009 with her and has been actively performing with the Ensemble since then, both islandwide and overseas (Bandung, Indonesia and Hong Kong).
