Born in Hungary and partly raised in the States, I am half Japanese. I started learning piano at a super young age, and by the age of 16 I finally found my path in playing all these notes. A crucial and decisive step in that was when I attended the Vántus István Music High School with Dr Lucz Ilona from 2009-2013 in Szeged, Hungary. Only smooth sailing from there: after graduating from The Royal Academy of Music, London in 2017 under the tutelage of Joanna MacGregor, I earned my Master’s Degree studying with Niklas Sivelöv at The Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen.
Music for me is the purest form of communication. I aim to tell my audiences a story, showing the beauty and ups and downs written into the music through my perspective. Often it is only my experiences and my being that I draw the tools from to shape my interpretation. This is why as an artist, my path is ever-evolving, honing itself more into something unique.
I outstandingly like playing music from Ravel, Bartók, Brahms and Bach, but also love experimenting with contemporary music and jazz.
I recently recorded a commissioned piece for double bass and piano, composed by Aaron Hudson. Fantastic music!
Meanwhile, in my free time I teach a class of a dozen talented pianists. They are the future generation of music-carriers, so it is of great importance to me to show all the different aspects of playing, listening, and understanding good music.
Before the pandemic, I started a company in men’s skincare, Jun Grooming. During that period, I learned how to build websites and experimented with coding. Lastly I dabble in woodworking, and also love cooking for my friends.
