Biography

Australian-born pianist Joshua Han started  his piano studies at the age of four. After winning his first gold in  the Sydney Eisteddfod at the age of six, Joshua has achieved  considerable success in the world of music.

In 2012, at 10 years  old, Joshua received his LMusA and performed as soloist at the Iguazú en  Concierto Festival in Argentina. The next year, he received  Encouragement Prizes at both the 1st Korea International Piano  Competition, and the Theme and Variations Inaugural Awards. Joshua also  participated with his brother in the 2013 edition of Australia’s Got  Talent, placing as a Top 6 Finalist.

In 2014, Joshua won First  Prize at the 14th Ettlingen International Competition for Young  Pianists, achieving the highest mark at the time of 9.9/10 in the  contest’s 28-year history.
The following year, Joshua received first  prize, as well as Audience Prize at the 3rd Aarhus International Piano  Competition. He subsequently appeared as a concerto soloist at the 2015  Peace and Piano Festival in Suwon.

Having won the 2016  BlueScope/WIN Network Open Age Piano Championships (Wollongong  Eisteddfod), and receiving his Fellowship Recital Diploma (FTCL) that  same year, Joshua took a sojourn of several years from piano  performance. Currently a second-year Bachelor of Arts (English) and  Doctor of Medicine student at the University of Sydney, Joshua is  studying privately with Dr Paul Rickard-Ford, and intends to pursue  piano performance by resuming his participation in concerts and  competitions alongside his study of medicine.
