Mandakhtuya Dorj started her musical career at the age of five. She later attended Music and Dance College in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia before arriving in the UK to continue her studies at the Junior Academy of the Royal Academy of Music, London.

Manda is keen to explore contemporary piano repertoire. Her recent well received recital was playing George Crumb Makrokosmos Vol.1 at the RNCM American Festival.

During the time at the RNCM, Manda has learnt so much through participating in all the music festivals and as well as attending the master classes from the top artists such as Andras Schiff, Imogen Cooper, Alfred Brendel, Steven Osbourne and Steven Hough. In February 2010, she had the privilege to meet Murray Perahia at the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester.
