Born in Hong Kong, Raymond Wui-Man Yiu began piano lessons aged four. He moved to Aberdeen, Scotland in 2008 and attended the Aberdeen City Music School studying the piano with Peter Evans. During his time at ACMS, he made his concerto debut with the Meadows Chamber Orchestra in Edinburgh in 2010. He also won the title of Aberdeen Young Musician of the Year, which led to a performance of Schumann's Piano Concerto with the Aberdeen Youth Symphony Orchestra. He won prizes at the Edinburgh Competition Festival, including the coveted Concerto Prize where he performed Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 1 with the Festival Orchestra. He gave recitals at the Aberdeen International Youth Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

In 2012 he won a scholarship to study with Joan Havill at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, where he was awarded a Bachelor of Music (with Honours) with First Class. He has recently won Third Prize at the Windsor International Piano Competition, and subsequently has been invited to join the KNS Classical Label. He has also won Third Prize at the Watford International Piano Competition and First Prizes at the Springboard Concerto Competition in Brighton and the Worthing Concerto Competition. Other successes include being a prize-winner at the First New Stars International Music Competition for Strings and Piano, finalist in Glass Sellers' Beethoven Piano Prize at Guildhall and a finalist in the Westbourne Orchestra Concerto Competition.

Currently, he is undertaking his Master's degree at Guildhall. He is grateful for the generous support by the Leathersellers' Company, Deena Shypitka Music Award, Dewar Arts Awards, Phyllis Simons Award, the Guildhall School Trust and Christine Brown Trust.
