Guitar virtuoso An Tran was born and raised in Hanoi, Vietnam, and credits his first musical inspiration to his parents, who introduced him to music in his mother’s womb. He started learning the guitar at the age of 8 with guitarists Nguyen Hai Thoai and Vu Bao Lam. He continued his musical training at the Vietnam National Academy of Music, studying with guitarist Vu Viet Cuong. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in Music from North Park University, studying with Dr. Julie Goldberg and Dr. Tom Zelle, and a Master of Music from Yale University under the teaching of renowned guitarist/composer Benjamin Verdery. He is currently a Doctor of Musical Arts candidate at Northwestern University, under the guidance of Anne Waller.
Mr. Tran has performed throughout North America and Asia as a soloist and a chamber musician. Deeply connected to his native country, he brings traditional music of Vietnam to the international concert stages. His 2017-2018 season included debut concerts in Austin and Dallas, Texas, and he will be touring Asia in fall 2018.
