Hailing from Saigon, Vietnam, Minh Quan Phan's career as a pianist and composer began in earnest when he attended the Ho Chi Minh City Conservatory aged 16.
Tutored by professor Sa Nguyen, it wasn't long before he began to write music professionally, and his first album, titled My First Journey, appeared in 2012 when he was aged 17. His composition "I Love N.Y." was relatively successful the following year, and he would in fact relocate to Brooklyn, New York a few years later. His music was featured in a number of films and television series, and he scooped many prestigious awards for both his instrumental practice and his composition. ~ Simon Spreyer, Rovi
