Artist info

Miyuki Kato

Miyuki Kato was born in Japan and came to the UK in 1997 as an exchange student to spend a year at a grammar school in Kent. While she was there she met with a piano teacher, Dr Michael Schreider, and decided to play piano for a living (although her first plan on coming to the UK was to become a ballet costume designer).

In 1999 she entered the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester. After the first year, she decided to transfer to the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama (RWCMD) to study with Dr Schreider, where she graduated in 2003 with BMus first for performance and the Ivor Coles Memorial Award.

In 2005 she graduated from the Postgraduate Diploma course at the RWCMD. During her studies at the RWCMD she won the Jacobson Piano Prize, Chamber Music Prizes and Accompaniment Prize.

She then studied at the Royal College of Music with Gordon Fergus-Thompson, where she was awarded Postgraduate Diploma in Performance in summer 2007 and Master of Music Degree in Advanced Performance in 2008.

She has been attending the North London Music School every summer since 2001, where she took part in masterclasses with Irina Osipova, Christopher Elton, Ronan O’Hora and other professors from the UK and Russia.

Miyuki has given a number of concerts in Wales, England and Japan. These include a recital in St Martin in the Fields and an interlude performance in a service of thanksgiving for Sir Hardy Amies at St James’s Church, Piccadilly.

She won fourth prize at the International Piano Competition in Gargano, Italy in 2003, and first prize at the National Eisteddfod in 2004. She was awarded a diploma at the London International Music Competition in August 2005.
