Dennis Kuo, MD is a Taiwanese-American composer, music producer, a medical doctor, and the creator of the Study Music Project. Dennis began composing music for focus and productivity in 2010, after being admitted to medical school. He originally composed the music to help himself study, but the Study Music Project quickly caught on when others had found tremendous benefit and success in their own studies.
Dennis Kuo blends in elements from classical music, piano, jazz, hip-hop, ambient, electronic, chill music, lo-fi, and nature to create a novel style of productivity-centered music that is not-boring, effective, and beneficial to the listener.
Dennis Kuo started his music career by creating study music for students to use, but he strives to expand his music into increasing productivity in the work and office-setting. Furthermore, he hopes to write music that will help people fight against stress, insomnia, anxiety, and depression – music that will heal the soul. Where medicine is limited, music will go.
Dennis Kuo studied at UCLA as a biochemistry major, received his doctorate of medicine at Wayne State University, and is finishing his residency at UCSD, as an anesthesiologist. He practices medicine full-time during the day and produces music in the evening.
