Originally from Whanganui, New Zealand, Liam Wooding is a pianist based in Melbourne, Australia. Performing and commissioning New Zealand music is central to his musical practice.
As a chamber musician, he has participated in courses and residencies at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity (Canada), Skidmore College (USA), and Four Winds (Australia). In 2018 he was the recipient of the Pettman/ROSL Chamber Music Scholarship which will enable him to study and perform in the United Kingdom for one month with The Morton Trio. In addition to this, the Tasman Trio - of which Liam is a member - will perform Beethoven’s Triple Concerto with the Wellington Chamber Orchestra in 2019.
He was a prize winner in the National Concerto Competition where he performed with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra, and he has also featured as a soloist with the Auckland Chamber Orchestra and the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra.
Liam is a graduate of the University of Auckland and the University of Waikato where he received a Master of Music degree studying under Rae de Lisle MMNZ and Katherine Austin. Liam currently studies at the Australian National Academy of Music under Timothy Young. He is grateful to have received support for his study from the Creative New Zealand Jack Mcgill Scholarship, Dame Malvina Major Foundation, Te Ati Hau Trust, Whanganui Trust, FAME trust, Anne Bellam Scholarship, Kerby Bursary, The University of Waikato, and The University of Auckland.
