Do Dinh Phuong was born in Vietnam. His passion and dedication to the art of the guitar earned him the First Diploma in Classical Guitar at the National Conservatory of Music and Drama in Saigon, an honor that was unprecedented. He is credited with introducing traditional Vietnamese music and classical guitar to his beloved homeland. His innovative arrangements of Vietnamese classics for the guitar and romantic signature style made him a renowned classical guitarist in Vietnam.
