Biography

Nobuo Uematsu (植松伸夫, Uematsu Nobuo?, born March 21, 1959) is a Japanese video game composer and musician, best known for scoring the majority of titles in the Final Fantasy series.

Nobuo Uematsu was born in Kōchi, Kōchi Prefecture, Japan.] A self-taught musician, he began to play the piano when he was eleven or twelve years old, with Elton John as his biggest influence. He did not take any formal piano lessons.He has an older sister who also played the piano. After graduating from Kanagawa University, Uematsu played the keyboard in several amateur bands and composed music for television commercials. When Uematsu was working at a music rental shop in Tokyo, a Square employee asked if he would be interested in creating music for some of the titles they were working on. Although he agreed, Uematsu considered it a side job, and he did not think it would become a full-time job. He said it was a way to make some money on the side, while also keeping his part-time job at the music rental shop.
