In May 2018, he performed Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.5 (“Emperor”) with the Elder Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra under the baton of maestro James Lowe. Later that year he was awarded the 2018 Peter Schodde Memorial Piano Scholarship, which facilitated him travelling to Germany, Austria and England, and playing for highly respected professors and performers to further his technical abilities and musicianship.
