Hazel Nguyen began her music education at the age of three. Developing a controlled, prodigious technique, she has been praised for her authority over the most complex technically demanding pieces, the depth of her musical insight and charismatic stage presence.

With a full scholarship to study at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, she graduated with a First-Class Bachelor Degree in Piano Performance. In the last four years, Hazel taught at Rossall All-Steinway-School in Lancashire and at Ripley St Thomas in Lancaster as a Subject Leader. Apart from performing worldwide and judging international competitions, she is also one of the youngest examiners in the UK.

As a rounded musician, Hazel is a recording artist, and a transcriber, an arranger, and a business partner for Musescore UK. You can find her latest videos here

Her virtuosic recording of Beethoven’s Bagatelle op.33 no.5 was played on BBC Radio 3 and made a signature tune for their program In Tune. In Glasgow, producing the best performance of a Mozart Concerto, she was awarded Jock Holden Memorial Trophy. Hazel won the Rosanne Archibald prize for the most promising musician at Blackburn Music Festival and was also a winner at Glasgow Rising Star competition.
