“Music isn’t only about the sound, but the flow of emotions through the time.”
Since Kane Chang gave his first recital at the age of 13 in China, he decided to become a professional musician. In 2009, he moved to Melbourne and continued studying piano with Glenn Riddle. Kane has worked with chamber groups and orchestras across China and Australia. He has also performed in many competitions, concerts, and radio broadcasts. The highlight of his early career was performing Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Concerto with the New Goldberg Orchestra in 2016. Kane enjoys to work and learn with other musicians; he has participated in numerous masterclasses with well-known performers and teachers including Dan Shaoyi, Daniel Herscovitch, Alexandre Dossin, Julie Haskell, and Janine Sowden.
In 2019, Kane completed his Bachelor of Music with Honours from the University of Melbourne. Later in the same year, he received an offer to study a Master of Piano Performance from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, but due to the pandemic, Kane decided to stay in Melbourne and is keen to pursue his career in Australia.
Kane is excited to commence training at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) with Timothy Young in 2021.
