How long has Kunho been interested in music?
Kunho has loved music from a very early age. When he was just 42 months old I took him to a piano studio near our house, where he started learning to play. Since then, his piano has been his favourite toy.
How did Kunho become part of the ‘Golden Classical Music Awards’ competition?
Kunho's piano teacher in Korea recommended him to participate in this competition. She is a prominent professor who has been teaching many talented young students (piano "prodigies") at the Special Education Program for Gifted Children at Seoul Art Center for 10 years. This is where she met Kunho.
Kunho entered into the competition in December 2017, just before we relocated to Ho Chi Minh City. The competition was open to strings, piano, wind, chamber music and vocal disciplines of all nationalities and ages. In January, we were informed that Kunho had won first prize in the Junior piano soloist category (9-12 years old) and he was therefore being invited to perform at the Winner’s Concert at Weill Recital Hall, Carnegie Hall!
