Jonathan Kuo is one of Bandung International School’s extremely talented students.

This young pianist started to play the piano when he was five years old and has played the works of Chopin, Beethoven, Prokofiev, Bach and Liszt at various national and international music festivals and competitions.

At the ‘Chopin Competition 2010’ in Singapore, Jonathan won third place. At the ‘Indonesia Steinway Youth Piano Competition 2012’ Jonathan won the third place in the children’s category. In the same year, in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, amongst the most talented pianists from all over the world, Jonathan obtained the second place for the Primary School 3rd and 4th Grade category of the ‘5th ASEAN International Chopin Piano Competition’, as well as the Best Performance of the Mazurka! In 2013 he won the ‘BIMA KAWAI National Piano Competition’ in Bandung with an amazing performance and obtained the fourth place at ‘The Fourth KAWAI Asia Piano Competition’, in the city of Wuhan in China.

Bandung International School recognizes the special requirements needed by talented students, whether they are developing as professional athletes or performing artists. In Jonathan’s case, the school provides a special music room for daily practice and an adapted academic schedule. But it is our diligent student Jonathan, his piano teacher (who is a graduate of the Manhattan School of Music) and his highly supportive parents who deserve all the praise.
