Lucas Hung – Piano (Junior Piano Teacher)
Lucas is currently completing his grade 10 piano studies under Marjory Purdy. He started playing piano at age four, and has been awarded five Conservatory Canada Medals of Excellence for the highest exam mark in BC for piano grades 2, 5, 6, 7 and 8, and the Linda Rehder Kennedy Memorial Medal of Excellence for the highest mark in Canada for grade 9 piano.
Lucas has also won numerous scholarships and trophies for piano and theory exams, and from festivals. In November 2016, he was awarded the Caroline Conron/Marguerite Geiger National Piano Travel and Study Scholarship, and attended a master class with Peter Longworth in London, Ontario along with performing at the 2016 Conservatory Canada National Convocation. In addition, Lucas has also attended master classes with Ian Parker and Carla Dodek, and has studied with May Ling Kwok.
In his free time, Lucas enjoys fencing, playing jazz piano, acting and reading. He believes in a teaching philosophy that will pass down his love of music and playing piano to his students, and encourage them to explore new genres of music and find their own interests and passions. He hopes to support his students to cultivate their learning abilities and earn valuable life skills such as hard work, critical listening, and patience.
