Takeaki Miyamae began his flute studies at age nine with Suzuki Flute Method founder, Toshio Takahashi. When he was 11 years old, Takeaki began to study with the legendary flutist, Marcel Moyse (1889-1984) in Brattleboro, Vermont; Honolulu, Hawaii; and Matsumoto, Japan. From age eleven to fifteen he gave many recitals in the United States and Canada, including a solo recital at the 1981 National Flute Association Convention in Detroit.

Following Marcel Moyse’s demise Takeaki stopped performing professionally, as he had lost his great mentor, and he chose to go into medicine. He earned both his and a Ph.D in Medicine at Yokohama City University Graduate School in 1999, and worked as a neuroscientist for 10 years.

In 2001, Dr. Miyamae resumed his professional music career and started to study with Louis Moyse. He has recorded several CDs in Japan, has appeared on television, and in numerous solo and chamber music performances in the U.S., Taiwan and Japan. In 2002 he recorded the Suzuki Flute School CDs for Volumes 8 and 10.

He also received First Prize of American Protégé International Flute Competition 2012, Honorary Mention of the 12th International Web Concert Hall Competition 2011, and Most Distinguished Musician Award with Special Mention of the 20th IBLA Grand Prize International Music Competition 2011. He recently won the Premier Prix (first prize) of Concours International Léopold Bellan in France.
