In 2001, at the age of 11, Miyuji was accepted to the Special School for Exceptional Young Talents of the Franz Liszt Academy of Music. In 2006, having completed all of the school’s courses, he returned to Japan and was admitted to the Tokyo College of Music High School. He graduated at the top of his class from the Tokyo College of Music and went on to complete the graduate program at the same university. Miyuji has won numerous prizes in international competitions, including the first prize at the Bartok International Piano Competition in 2008.
