Among the prizes he received from international guitar competitions, winning the first prize of the 2016 David Russell Bach Prize, a competition judged solely by Grammy-award winner David Russell, has earned Hu a reputation as a Bach interpreter.

As a recording artist, his all-Bach CD, Ciaccona, produced by Eudora Records in Spain, has received critical acclaims worldwide.

Bin Hu began classical guitar lessons at age 11 with Zhiwei Li, a pioneer and founder of the first classical guitar school in China. He then studied privately in Beijing with Jiajiong Li of the Central Conservatory of Music.

Within the framework of his studies, Hu also took part in master classes taught by Sérgio and Odair Assad, David Russell, and Ricardo Gallén, among others.
