Lea Han was born in 1997 and started playing piano by the age of 6. She began her studies with Kyoto Møller, and later on with Bella Zapolski. After graduting a pre-conservatory (MGK) in 2014, she has been studying with Amalie Malling and Jens Elvekjær at the Royal Danish Academy of music in Copenhagen. She has been a regular attendant in the international masterclasses held by EPTA, where she has been taught by Eugen Indjic, Kevin Kenner and Mikhail Voskresensky. 

Besides playing solo, she is a very active chamber musician, engaging in traditional as well as more modern chamber ensembles. Her diversity as a musician is also seen in her engagement with singers, with whom she went to a masterclass taught by Danish barytone Bo Skovhus and Austrian pianist Helmut Deutsch.

From a young age, she has been participating in numerous national competitions, like Berlingske Tidendes Klassiske Musikkonkurrence, where she won both 1. Prize and gold medal, and got to perform in Tivolis concert hall. She has also participated in the Danish Steinway Festival, where she won 1. Prize and the audience prize. Lastly in 2011 she won 1. Prize in “Spil for Livet”, a competition held by the national radio, where she got the chance to perform with the danish radio orchestra. Through these competitions, she has played concerts all over Denmark. Later on, she has received several scholarships, like Thyra Rosa Berthold Johansens legat, Bente Calbergs legat, Kontorchef Arthur Andersen og Hustru Ellen Andersens legat, and the Copenhagen Summerfestival Talentprize.
