Of Medicine and Art

Robert Gupta was stuck between the choice to either becoming a doctor or a violinist. In this dilemma, he sought to find a middle ground in his  passions. He wanted to be able to help others through the field of medicine, but not be chained down by just on how society views doctors should be. What he found was that he combined both skills to have his passion in music help in his career in medicine into what is know as music therapy.  At the young age of 19, Gupta joined the LA Philharmonic and maintains a passionate parallel interest in neurobiology and mental health issues.

“The beauty of music has the ability to speak where words fail.” – Robert Gupta
