To call Shuan Hern Lee a prodigy is an un­der­state­ment.

The son of two pi­anists was a semi-fi­nal­ist on Aus­tralia’s Got Talent at seven years old.

At 14, he was in­vited to en­rol in a Mu­sic Specialist de­gree at the Univer­sity of WA.

Now, at 16, Shuan Hern has won the Cliburn In­ter­na­tional Ju­nior Pi­ano Com­pe­ti­tion in Dallas, Texas, the 14th in­ter­na­tional pi­ano com­pe­ti­tion vic­tory of his ca­reer.

He walked away with the $15,000 first prize by wow­ing the judg­ing panel with his per­for­mance of Rach­mani­noff’s Con­certo No.3 in D mi­nor, ac­com­pa­nied by the Dallas Sym­phony Orches­tra.
