The Piano Boy

Hats off to Jason Tam, a division finalist in the MTNA Junior Piano Competition. The keyboard maestro will travel to Roman University in Glassboro, NJ in January to compete in the finals.

The multi-talented son of Raymond Tam and Alice Tam tickles the black and white keys at Brooklyn Technical High School, and has been studying under the tutelage of Dr. Tian Song since he was 8 years old.

Jason was accepted to the Mark Twain Intermediate School for the Gifted and Talented as a music major student at age 10, and in 2012 he was a finalist for the 27th International Young Artist Piano Competition in Washington D.C.

As a further feather in his cap, Jason was invited to perform in the New York State Music Teachers Association “Winter Musicale Concert” at Queens College in March.

Jason isn’t just a master of the keyboard, but is equally talented on the drums. In 2014 he was invited to perform in the “Columbia Festival of Winds” at Columbia University.

The winner of the January event will then compete in the National Finals during the MTNA National Conference in San Antonio, Texas, in April.

Standing O congratulates Jason on his success and wishes him all good luck in January.
