鄧旭誠 Johnson TANG
Tang Yuk-shing is currently studying at the Chinese University of Hong Kong as a year 2 psychology major. Tang started playing the piano at the age of 9, which is a relatively late time for beginning an instrument; yet despite the late start, Tang has made achievements through his effort in practice. Raised in Shenzhen, Tang has studied with passionate piano teachers including Chen Lan, the associate director of the Piano Department in the Shenzhen Art School, and Zhao Mengqi, a young pianist who graduated from the Xinghai Conservatory of Music. Tang has won the first prize in the 5th Shenzhen ‘Liszt’ Piano Competition in 2012 and was invited to give a concert in the Shenzhen Concert Hall with the champions of other groups.
