Lang Lang — one of the 21st century’s giants of the piano — brings his experience, knowledge and charisma to the Royal College of Music.
A leading figure in classical music today, as a pianist, educator and philanthropist, he is one of the world’s most influential and committed ambassadors for the arts.
Equally happy playing for billions of viewers at the 2008 Olympic Opening Ceremony in Beijing or for student groups in schools and conservatoires around the world, he is a master of communicating through music. Most recently appearing as a judge on Channel 4’s The Piano, Lang Lang has transcended the classical music world to become a household name, and this is a special opportunity for young RCM pianists hoping to follow in his footsteps to learn from him first-hand.
