Han is a pianist, composer/arranger, harpsichordist, and visual artist. A musician for twenty-five years, he has performed as a soloist and with ensembles, written numerous original works, taught for nearly two decades, and adjudicated at music festivals.
At the piano, Han has performed major works such as Rachmaninoff’s First Piano Concerto (SOTK 2018), Prokofiev's Sonata No. 6, Bach's Goldberg Variations, Beethoven's Sonatas Op. 53 and 57, Chopin's Op. 22, and Ligeti's Musica Ricercata. Recently he has focused on recording projects, including Tchaikovsky's The Seasons. He has taken part in the CMC Stepping Stone, the CMC finals for piano and harpsichord, and the RBC Concerto Competition, and has performed locally with TimePoint and Calgary ProArts.
Han's original works include Trio for Strings (2023), Three Dances for Oboe and Piano (2020), Adagio/Allegro/Piano/Bassoon (2015), Ballad Concerto for Cello and Piano (2012), Vignettes for Solo Piano (2023), and Piano Sonata (2013). For Canada's 150th, he was one of eight Alberta composers commissioned by ARMTA to write piano pieces based on folk songs. Han has also written many classical and jazz arrangements of traditional and popular music for piano and chamber settings.
Han started at the piano by ear. He completed his Level 6 conservatory exam after ten months of study and went on to receive degrees in piano performance and English literature from the University of Calgary, and piano diplomas from the Royal Conservatory of Music. His teachers included Peter Turner, Vladimir Levtov, and Allan Gordon Bell.
In visual arts, Han has focused on crafts, painting, photography, and video editing. Currently he is constructing an architecturally accurate scale model of the Anne Frank House, which, upon completion, will be the most detailed ever miniature of the historical building.
Outside of music and art, Han enjoys writing fiction, watching movies, and travelling in all of its aspects—including extra time in airports during flight delays and airplane food. He is also fond of cars, cats, and Halloween.
