Jing Han

Drawn to music from a young age, Han Jing, born in 1989 in China, began learning the violin at just four years old.

Great talent and hard work allow her to complete the ten levels of music education in her country in just seven years.

At eleven years old, then endowed with growing maturity and a rich temperament, Jing asserted herself in the competition of her Province and won the first prize.

In 2002, although very young but already possessing great charisma, she was offered the place of ‘Konzertmeister’ in her school orchestra. She also has the opportunity to play the concerto "butterfly lovers" by Chinese composer Chen Gang as a soloist. In 2008, she chose to continue her apprenticeship at the Xi’an Conservatory in the class of Professor Zhong Yi.

The four years spent with the latter allowed her to enrich herself musically and technically. In 2010, after a dazzling performance, Jing won the first prize in the Xi’an Province Violin Competition. Her successes multiplied and in 2011, at the China Music Festival, she had the privilege of performing as a soloist an extract from Tchaikovsky's violin concerto, accompanied by the Xi'an Symphony Orchestra. Wu Guiying (politician), present at the performance, will describe the concert as ‘high performance’. In 2012, she finished first and graduated from the Xi’an Conservatory.

In order to improve herself, Jing continues her studies with Professor Eric MELON at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Liège where she graduates in 2014 with the “Grande Distinction” mention. In 2013, she was a finalist in the Henri Koch violin competition in Liège.

In 2016, she obtains a Didactic Master at the Royal Conservatory of Music of Liège with “Grande Distinction”. Teaching is one of Jing's greatest passion.
