Leo Zhou

Won Multiple Titles of First place in different music competitions; passed Trinity Grade 8 with Distinction

I’ve been learning piano since I was 5 years old. I like making beautiful music with my hands. I enjoy it very much. And I also like the challenge to always have new and harder piece to learn. My favourite composer is Tchaikovsky and my favourite piece is Tchaikovsky Concerto No.1. 

I won first place in Junior section of Taranaki Symphony Orchestra’s concerto competition with my Mozart concerto in F Major 3rd movement when I was 8 years old. I was lucky to perform with the orchestra on stage in the city stadium. I also won numerous 1st places and scholarship in different competitions since I was 6 years old.

I play violin as my second instrument. I like to play in the orchestra as everyone works together and enjoys each other’s playing. 

In my leisure time, I play hockey for my school and do ski racing on the mountains. I also like reading books and playing games.
