Beginning from classical music then switched to jazz world with the professional experiences in piano performance more than 30 years, I possesses not only a profound repertoire in both classical and jazz genre, but also interprets the music from both perspectives in my performance.
“With a confident, graceful tone and a smart harmonic sensibility...with his harmonic concept at its most sophisticated, it’s the record’s best evidence that Hon has a promising career ahead of him in this music.”

Francis is an amazing Pianist and Composer. He completed the work quickly and was very professional.
I worked with Francis many times in recording session and live performance, he is not only a great pianist but also very knowledgeable about various music genres/styles, chord progression, and theory. All these can be heard in his works of playing and improvisation, highly recommended!
