Biography

Liam Wooding was born in Whanganui, New Zealand in 1992. His love of the piano was fostered at an early age, which grew through his learning and experiences—particularly the NZCT Chamber Music Contest, which he participated in five times.

Liam went on to study piano in Auckland and Hamilton under Rae de Lisle and subsequently Katherine Austin, graduating with a Master’s degree in music. He was then accepted into the selective piano class at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) to study with Timothy Young, and remained there for three years. More recently he studied in the United States as a Fulbright Scholar with Aleck Karis.

In his work as a pianist he performs as a soloist, chamber music partner, and accompanist, and also teaches and coaches younger students. He is a founding member of the Morton Trio, an ensemble consisting of the violin, french horn, and piano that are becoming increasingly well-known for their engaging performances.

Music by New Zealand composers has always been present in his music making, and this interest led him to commence a doctoral degree at the University of Waikato on this topic. As a result, Liam often works with some of New Zealand’s best-known contemporary composers, such as Reuben Jellyman, Janet Jennings, and John Psathas.
