Enter the Competition 

I’m honoured to have received the first prize in the WPTA Spain International Piano Competition artistic category, and i’m extremely thankful for many upcoming opportunities that i got from this competition. I wanted to thank Mr. Devastato, the president of the competition, for such a wonderful platform to showcase our arts to Mr. Jimmy Wang for your generosity in providing an upright Krause Berlin Piano for me, and to each committee and competition member. I highly recommend this competition to everyone who is looking for great opportunities in the future as an artist, WPTA Spain International Piano Competition really puts the artists where they belong to.
