My name is Haruhito Sakurai. I’m a 15-year-old boy from Japan and a student at Nido de Aguilas International School. I started learning piano in the U.S. when I was nine. Several years later, when I moved back to Japan, I learned piano from a Yamaha teacher. Now, for three years, I’ve been learning piano from a teacher who studied at The Juilliard School. At home, I play the piano. At school, I play the alto and the baritone sax in the concert band. Since this is my first time participating in a piano competition, I do not have any previous recognitions, nor prizes that I’ve achieved.
