He graduated from Bul-Bul Musical School in Baku and Azerbaijani State Conservatory. Mr. Sadykhov further studied for PhD degree in Moscow Conservatory under professor Goldenveyser. Then he returned to Baku where he lived until 1994 before migration to the USA. He currently resides in San Francisco.

Initially Chingiz Sadykhov played classical music but later switched to Azerbaijani one. He has spent much of his life accompanying Azerbaijan's most prominent singers, including Bulbul, the founder of Azerbaijan's professional vocal school; Rashid Behbudov, the singer who most often represented Azerbaijan throughout the world during the Soviet period; and Muslim Magomayev (born 1942), one of the former Soviet Union's best-known pop stars. When asked how many songs are in his repertoire, Chingiz readily admits that there are so many that he wouldn't know where to start counting.
