Tomoharu Ushida was born in Iwaki City, Fukushima Prefecture, in 1999. Soon after his birth, his family moved to Shanghai, where his father was transferred for work. It was there that Tomoharu began his piano studies.

In 2005, at the age of five, he won 1st Prize at a piano competition for children in Shanghai. He won 1st Prize in the Chopin International Piano Competition in Asia for five consecutive years from 2008 to 2012 (when he was 8 to 12 years old).

In 2012, at the age of 12, Tomoharu won 1st Prize in the 16th Hamamatsu International Piano Academy Competition (becoming the youngest winner in its history). In the same year, he was the youngest-ever Japanese pianist to release a debut CD on the Universal Music label. Since then he has released numerous CDs including Memories (2012), Liszt & Chopin (2013), Traumerei (2014), Liebesfreud (2015/Record Geijutsu Special Selection), Pictures at an Exhibition (2016/Record Geijutsu Special Selection), and in March 2019 he is set to release a new CD Chopin 24 Preludes and Ballad No.1.
