Love is my soul of music

Philbert King Yue Li


Music begins here...

Winner of the Japan-Hong Kong International Music Competition and the Hong Kong-Asia Piano Open Competition, Philbert King Yue Li traveled across Belgium, Germany, Hong Kong, Spain and the United States to perform in solo piano recitals, chamber ensemble concert, and harpsichord salons. 


Before pursuing postgraduate studies in the USA, Philbert’s talent has been recognized in his hometown Hong Kong. He was top—prize winner of prestigious competitions such as the Hong Kong Youth Culture & Art Development Association’s Competition and the Hong Kong (Asia Pacific) Piano Competition. Taking advantage of the continual British influence in Hong Kong music education, Philbert obtained piano certifications such as the Licentiate of the Royal Schools of Music (LRSM, 2009) and the Fellowship of the Trinity College London (FTCL, 2011). As a result of his academic and pianistic achievements, he received scholarships from the Hong Kong Government, Au Bak Ling Charity Trust, and the Temple University.


Beyond performance, Philbert is also a specialist in education and music theory. He holds an education degree with First Class Honor and the Licentiate of the Trinity College London (LMusTCL, 2014), and has given private lessons for twelve years. The age of his students ranges from early childhood to adult, and he has diverse experience in both individual and classroom settings.

Born in Hong Kong, Philbert earned his Master degree in piano performance at Temple University. There, he studies piano with Clipper Erickson and historical instruments with Joyce Lindorff. He also had couching sessions from Aquiles Delle Vigne, Bernd Goetzke, Carl Cranmer, Charles Abramovic, Christopher Harding, Damian Hernandez, Daniel Pollack, Douglas Humpherys, Edward Auer, Frederic Chiu, Logan Skelton, Louis Nagel, Miyoko Lotto and Seymour Lipkin. Philbert is now pursuing his Doctorate degree in piano performance with Baruch Meir at the Arizona State University with a teaching assistantship.
