Overview

A native of Hong Kong, Brian started playing the piano at age four. He received scholarships for both his Bachelor of Music (2013) and Masters of Music (2015) degrees in Piano performance from Brooklyn College Conservatory of Music. A first-class honor graduate, Brian has performed in masterclasses by Nina Lelchuk, Michael Oelbaum, Nelita True, Sergei Babayan, Ursula Oppens, Veda Kaplinsky, Gabriel Kwok, Alexander Moutouzkine etc.
In 2011, he was granted a full scholarship to attend the International Keyboard Institute & Festival presented by Jerome Rose at the Mannes College of Music.
Brian has won numerous prizes internationally and locally; in 2006, he claimed the 3rd prize at the 58th Hong Kong School Music Festival. In 2011, he performed Rachmaninoff's Second Piano Concerto and was awarded the 2nd place at the annual concerto competition at Brooklyn College. Hailed by Babayan as "a very fine artist whose talent cannot be taught by anyone", he was the unanimous winner of the college's concerto competition after performing Chopin's e minor piano concerto.
In 2015, he was invited to participate at the Hudson International Piano Festival at Nyack College to widen his musical horizon. In 2016, he made his debut recital at the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall.
He is in demand as a solo and collaborative (accompanist & chamber music) pianist throughout the New York area.

He currently holds a piano studio of about 30 students; some got into prestigious music schools such as Juilliard and Mannes.

I have been studying with Brian for almost 5 years and I enjoyed every hour of his lesson. He has taught me how to achieve a singing tone at the piano; more importantly, he has opened up a whole new world of beauty for me through piano playing. He is an amazing artist--I feel really grateful that I had the chance to attend his recital and hear him live.
