Tina Guo, 31, was born in Shanghai and classically trained.

She had appeared as soloist with international orchestras and played with Midori at Walt Disney Hall.

But her career is now in the music she writes for video games, alongside gigs for Hans Zimmer and Justin Bieber.

Mention her name in LA. It will get you a table.

She can also play this.


  • Joep Bronkhorst says:

    What’s the news here? She’s been playing music for video games for years.

    • Max Grimm says:

      The only news is the release of her debut Sony album five days ago, titled Game On.
      As you rightly state, her career has (mostly) been in non-classical music for the last decade or so.
