neoclassical and minimalistic music.

Tristan MacWhirter

Tristan was born in South Africa and was introduced to piano at a young age by his parents, who saw it as a hobby for him. Though initially obligatory, his enthusiasm for the instrument flourished in his teenage years. He pursued multiple piano diplomas alongside his school studies and secured a scholarship to study at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire under the tutelage of Mark Bebbington. During his final year of undergraduate study, his musical horizons broadened as he delved into British music. This led to involvement in various piano prizes and concerts dedicated to British composers. Now, he's a postgraduate student at the Royal Northern College of Music studying with Alexandra Dariescu.
