I was involved in musical activities from a very young age. Growing up in Hong Kong, I was given so many opportunities to explore my passion for music. I started learning the violin and piano at the age of six, and I was also in the Hong Kong Children’s Choir, of which my fondest memory was singing in the opening ceremony of Hong Kong Disneyland. It was a dream come true as a child, singing Disney songs and getting free tickets to Disneyland!

I moved to the UK at the age of thirteen and enrolled into the junior programme at the Royal College of Music, a place which really cemented my passion for music and led me to pursue my aspirations as a violinist.

Upon completion of my Masters in 2019, I was offered the opportunity to perform on a four-month cruise embarking on April 2020, in the year of the pandemic. It was an important turning point in my life, and I started to develop my career in education as a violin teacher and discovered a new passion for music. I am excited to begin my journey as an orchestral musician, to meet like-minded people who have such a love for their instrument and above all, sharing the experience with others.

My approach to music is that it is a social activity, and I find that to be a very useful focus for the development of my musical ideas and intentions. When I prepare for a performance, I am always considering how it affects other people, and how they should interact with my actions. Whether it is the audience or other musicians, I feel the need to connect with everyone involved in the performance space.

Outside of music, I have been slowly developing my skills in Bonsai and I have a small but growing collection of them in my garden. On the top of my to-do list, is to visit the annual Kokufu-Ten exhibition in Tokyo.
