Music is a passion for Dr. Chantelle Nakata. She has been playing the piano and viola since she was a child, and every tone, pitch, timbre, and texture of sound was a source of wonder for her. She had always been intrigued by how the ear interprets sounds and this has led naturally to her interest in audiology and how she would be able to help people with hearing disorders rediscover the sounds they love.
