He attended PianoTexas and the Academy at Verbier Music Festival, Switzerland, in 2007, and had played for Menahem Pressler, Yohaved Kaplinsky, Claude Frank, John O’Conor and Gabor Takacs-Nagy in Masterclasses.
Wong also plays the violin and was offered a full International scholarship from the Associated Board in 2005 to further his violin studies at the Royal Colleges in the UK. He declined however, deciding instead to focus his studies on the piano. Nonetheless, chamber music and orchestral playing have been a major part of his musical development.

When he was in Hong Kong, he had also conducted his school orchestra in public performances apart from appearances as soloist performing Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No.2 and Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue on separate occasions.
