Canadian-Japanese pianist, Yuki Tampo-Hinton has charmed audiences world-wide as a piano soloist, chamber musician, and conductor. Born in Victoria, B.C, she began piano lessons with her mother, Toshiko Tampo, at the tender age of three. Her musical pursuit has afforded her the privilege of studying with many notable artists, including Menahem Pressler, André Laplante, Lee Kum Sing, Angela Chang, Arthur Rowe, and Edmund Battersby. Chamber coaching includes those of Grammy award winner, Marietta Simpson; cellist, Eric Kim; flutist, Thomas Robertello; members of the Lafayette String Quartet; clarinetist, Patricia Kostek; and tenor, Benjamin Butterfield. Yuki has been recognized for her solo and chamber work both nationally and internationally. Her studies and performance tours have taken her across Canada and around the globe, most notably with performances in New York City, Salzburg, Tokyo, and London.
Yuki received her undergraduate degree from the University of Victoria and graduated summa cum laude with a master’s degree from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. Her passion has brought her to the Royal College of Music in London where she is currently working on her Music Ph.D. Research Degree, under the supervision of Dr. Natasha Loges, Dr. Mai Kawabata, and Danny Driver. Her research is currently focused on virtuosic piano textures in mid nineteenth century piano concert etudes. Yuki is generously being supported by the Royal College of Music as an RCM Award Holder.
