Hiroko Yamamoto

Hiroko Yamamoto first came to England in 1995 when she restarted her piano studies with the late Geraldine Mason Harrison.

Hiroko graduated from Trinity Colege of Music and studied piano with 2 Russian pianists — Alexander Ardakov and Nina Sereda — and later also studied classical singing with Elizabeth Haws, John Wakefield and Penny Clark.

She won 4th prize at the Beethoven Piano Competition in Shiga prefecture in Japan awarded by NHK. She was also awarded the Anthony Lindsay Piano Prize by Trinity College of Music.

While at college, she toured with a college violinist friend around Portugal and performed at several places and also toured with 3 classical singers around the Black Sea with a Swan Hellenic Cruise company and gave several concerts.

She has been performing with her violinist at various churches in London and recently they performed at their first concert in Japan, which was well received.
