Official home page for Japanese classical guitarist and composer Hidè Takemoto.

Inspired by his guru, the great virtuoso and composer Keigo Fujii, Hidè’s guitar technique can be traced back via José Luis Gonzaléz, Andrés Segovia, Miguel Llobet to the great Francisco Tárrega.

Hidè studied at Osaka College of Music and Guildhall School of Music & Drama with Robert Brightmore, David Miller, Daniel Schroyens, Judith Bingham, as well as master classes of David Russell, Shin-ichi Fukuda and Michael Tröster.

Hidè’s wide influences come from classical, rock (X Japan, Dream Theater, Steve Vai), Indian and Japanese music, giving him a unique and original style of performance and composition.
