Biography

Sheng-Yuan Lynch showed a great interest  and talent in piano and classical music at the tender age of three,  learning to play simply by listening to recordings. In 2012, he began  formal lessons with Shan Deng, Senior Lecturer in Classical Piano at  University of Tasmania.


Starting from his AMEB Grade 6 exam at  the age of 9, he passed AMusA and LMusA diplomas with distinction by the  age of 12, where he is one of the youngest candidates in Australia with  the award.


Fearless on stage, Sheng-Yuan has been invited to  perform in Melbourne, Sydney, Hobart and as far abroad as Beijing. Some  highlight appearances in the last few years include being guest solo  pianist with the Macquarie Symphony Orchestra, the Tasmanian Symphony  Orchestra and Tasmanian Youth Orchestra. He has also excelled in  competitions, including being awarded the prestigious McCann's Music  Award for being the most outstanding AMEB candidate in Southern  Tasmania, and Tasmanian Music Teachers Association's Award for most  promising junior pianist. At the age of thirteen, Sheng-Yuan became the winner of 2018 Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra’s Rising Star competition.


Using music as a way to assist those in  need, Sheng-Yuan has performed various charity concerts, helping donate  a total of over $130,000 to six organizations since he was 10. In his  spare time, he enjoys composing (and remixing) orchestral pieces, and  wishes to become a film composer.
