Thanawut Lex-Oudakron was born in June 1999 in Buriram, Thailand. Although he didn’t come from a musical family, he loved listening to music as a child. At age 16, he moved to England to finish his GCSE’s and A levels at Alexander’s College, Suffolk. During one of the lessons, a classmate played Mozart through a speaker as a joke, disrupting the class. This accidental exposure to classical music made such an impression on him that he decided to have piano lessons. His progress was rapid, so that one year later he won 1st Prize at the Oswestry Youth Music Festival. At the age of 18 he enrolled at the Cambridge School of Visual and Performing Arts where he received his first proper musical training under Vivian Choi. He is now studying piano with Douglas Finch on the BMus Course at Trinity Laban.
