【About me 】

Born in Kasuga, Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan in 1966. Graduated from Musashino Academia Musicae, Tokyo (musicology).

In 1998, “EMBLEMS, Militaly March” won the 9th Asahi Composition Award (wind music). This piece was selected for the required piece for the 1999 All Japan Band Contest. It has also been selected as the test piece for the band contest in Taiwan twice (2009 and 2013).

I was the music director and conductor for the Band of Kitakyushu City Fire and Disaster Management Department (20032005) and Oita Prefectural Police Band (20062017). In 2008, produced ceremony music for the National Sports Festival and conducted the ceremony band and chorus.

I composed many pieces for Wind band and wind instruments. In addition to composing, arranging and conducting activities, I am also a competition judge, researcher, and author.

In 2021, “Shining Soul 4, Concert March” won the second prize at the “Concert March” category of the “6th International Composition Competition for Marchs : Città di Allumiere” held in Allumierre, Italy.

My works have been published by Scomegna Edizioni Musicali (Italy), Golden Hearts Publications (Japan), Brain Music (Japan), and others.
