Founder & Director / Artistic Director
Having studied in Europe at a young age, I have personally been through tough phases as a struggling musician. Through my journey, I realised the importance of having the right platform to enhance musical education from a young age and to be connected to other like minded musicians from around the world. Being a performer myself, I often put myself in the shoes of my festival participants and understand their needs and concerns. From my time living in France - performing and organising, I managed to build a strong network of world-class piano teachers, and many of them became close friends over time. Piano Island Festival is the platform I have created for participants to have an easy access to learn from these piano masters despite their busy schedules. I believe that through this festival, we will be able to create more interaction between students and our faculty members; and open up further opportunities for participants to study abroad.
Due to the high number of applications in the past editions, Piano Island will organise preliminary selection rounds from February 2024. The International Piano Competition will be broadcasted live.
Masterclasses will be ticketed events.
(All applicants will have to be screened and vetted carefully)
