Siam International Piano Competition

7 - 13 Maggio: Giavazzi al 4th Siam International Piano Competition

Since 1985, Nat Studio has been determined to encourage musical competence within the youth between the ages of 7 - 18 in order to enhance an outstanding ability in piano performance to international standards



1. To encourage musical competence and raise the international standards of the youth
Considering the success of the 8th piano competition in 2006, it is unquestionable that Thai students’ abilities have reached a significantly advanced level. It is possible to expand the competition to wider scope. Thus, the First Siam International Piano Competition was held in 2009

2. To popularize H.M. The King’s music
In the 2nd round, each contestant will play a compulsory composition by H.M. the King, chosen for each category. By doing so, this will reveal the supreme mastery of His Majesty in the field of composition to the rest of the world. At the same time, it will help young pianists to deeply appreciate the beauty of H.M. The King's music.

3. To promote cultural diversity and friendship among individuals in classical piano music circle
We are determined to encourage friendship and hospitality among contestants. We believe that friendship and cooperation sparks all creativity. Not only will it assure the contestants’ comfort and confidence and thus allowing them to perform to their fullest potential, but it will also create a positive impression upon their return to their country. Friendship and cultural diversity will help broaden their horizon thus allowing for further knowledge and understanding of one another. This does not only affect the young contestants, but also parents and teachers as well. Eventually, this may help to significantly spread the interest in piano music to many other youth groups.

4. To create individuality in the youth
Winning the competition is not the ultimate goal of this event, it is what you achieve through the course of facing your challenges; that is the most important thing. Naturally when each contestant is faced by the harsh reality of winning and losing, triumph and disappointment, one must learn to understand and accept the results, like in sport. One must learn to take advantage of their failure and use it as a tool to encourage themselves to improve for the better.
