About me

Han has been playing music for twenty years. He studied at the University of Calgary, where his teachers included pianist Vladimir Levtov and composer Allan Gordon Bell, and received a Bachelor of Music in piano performance and a Bachelor of Arts in English literature. He also holds Licentiate and Associate piano diplomas from the Royal Conservatory of Music. A piano teacher of twelve years, Han's students have enjoyed success and recognition at local and provincial levels; he has also worked as an accompanist and adjudicator.

As a composer Han's output includes solo and ensemble music. His Ballad Concerto for Cello and Piano was performed in 2014 by cellist Alyssa Ramsay at the Glenn Gould School in Toronto, and his Adagio/Allegro/Piano/Bassoon was performed at the 2015 ARMTA Composer Showcase by bassoonist Jonathan Gresl and pianist Lana Henchell. His other works include Piano Sonata and Lullaby (for piano), the experimental choral work Only You, and Burst, a study for accordion, which was performed in a concert at the University of Calgary in 2010. Han wrote his earliest works at age nine.

Han was a national piano and harpsichord finalist of the Canadian Music Competition in Sherbrooke and Vancouver, and he performed with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra in the 2012 RBC Concerto Competition. He studied extensively with Peter Turner, participated for nine years in the Calgary Kiwanis Music Festival, and played in masterclasses for concert artists Jean-Paul Sevilla, Nelita True, Sara Davis Beuchner, and Jason Cutmore.

Han has called Calgary his home since 1993.
