Dylan has been playing the piano since the age of five, but has recently come to prominence after winning Pianist of the Year (or equivalent) awards at the Woking, Hatfield and Richmond music festivals. He also recently participated in the Emanuel Piano Competition, Woking Young Musician of the Year and performed Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No. 2 last year to widespread acclaim.
Particularly notable is Dylan’s concerto performance in the Royal Festival Hall, and his performances in Cadogan Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Haus der Musik (Vienna), Chetham’s School of Music, Westminster Hall (in front of the Royal Family at the Diamond Jubilee Lunch with the National Children’s Orchestra) in addition to a master class with Stephen Hough. A recent recital at the Hamburg Steinway factory also attracted media interest.
He currently studies at the Junior Royal Academy of Music, where he has developed a passion for composition, having numerous pieces being performed by Academy ensembles; future projects include a performance of his own piano concerto.
