Nanga’s love for music began at a young age when she started piano lessons with her mother in her hometown of Shantou, China. By the age of six, she was already performing in public. In 2014, she pursued her musical aspirations further by studying under Dr. Songwen Li. She then moved to the United States, where she attended Lancaster Mennonite High School and participated in several international festivals and competitions, further honing her skills.

Nanga won the Bronze Award in the Professional Artist category at the 2021 WPTA China-North America International Piano Competition. In 2024, she won the Louis Vyner Performance Competition at the Tell School of Music, which earned her the honor of performing Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto, Op.37, with the Millersville Orchestra in the spring of 2024.

In addition to her musical pursuits, Nanga has also excelled academically. She is on track to graduate summa cum laude in the spring of 2024. She was awarded the Presser Foundation Award for 2024. Next year, she will pursue a Master of Music degree in Piano Performance at the Manhattan School of Music, where she will study under Dr. Wael Farouk.
