Hajime Yoshida

Originally hailing from Ichikawa, Japan, Jazz Guitarist, Hajime Yoshida is one of the most sophisticated guitarists, accompanists and composers in New York City.

Hajime was fascinated by music at a very young age; he had been taking violin lessons from local professionals and had chances to perform recitals before he started playing guitar.

The very first time he touched a guitar was a part of music class in middle school, and his parents gave him his first guitar at the age of 14. 1 year later, he started taking lessons from professional guitar players in Tokyo area. Hajime also started his career as a composer at the same time, and it did not take much time for him to start playing original compositions at venues with his band.
