Chieko was born in Tokyo in 1978 and took an early interest in music by starting the piano at age four.  After participating as a member of the Tokyo Broadcasting Children Chorus Group for ten years, she got inspired to study composing and harmonics.  Upon graduating from a four year course at the Toho College of Music, she was offered a scholarship at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she majored in jazz and film composition.  She studied various other styles of composing, as well as theory, technique and visual composition on computers, and graduated with a diploma in film scoring in 2004.  After returning to Japan, she devoted herself to film music and concert production and was involved in a number of on-site projects.  She assigned herself to a chorus group called Little Carol and has been in charge of arranging music since it’s formation.  In recent years, she has continued her work and involvement in composing and arrangement.
