Minghui (Phoebe) has always been interested in music and piano from a very young age. She started singing at the age of 1.5, picked up violin at the age of 6, and keyboard at the age of 10, but decided that piano is what she really wants, after being mesmerised by a recording of lounge pianist Jimmy Chan’s playing. After much persuasion, her parents finally relented and let her start piano lessons at age 11.
Phoebe has her fair share of struggles in learning piano. As she has been playing by ear before starting formal lessons, she has much difficulty learning sight-reading. However, her love of music allowed her to overcome obstacles in learning and persistence allowed her to achieve merits and distinctions in most of her ABRSM piano and theory exams.
After her graded exams, Phoebe went on to pursue and obtained an Associate Diploma in Recital in Solo Piano (ATCL) from Trinity College London and an Associate Diploma in Music Pedagogy (Class II) from Seimpi School of Music. She is grateful to her piano teachers Mr Law Wai Lun (composer in residence of SCO) and Mr Arkadiuz Bialak (former Lasalle teacher) for their guidance in passing her grade 8 piano and diploma exams.
In the meantime, Phoebe is striving towards achieving a Licentate Diploma in Recital in Solo Piano (LTCL) from Trinity College London. Besides practicing hard for her licentate diploma, Phoebe also attends workshops, seminars, masterclasses and concerts to ensure continued music learning and growth.
A dedicated and committed music teacher, Phoebe hopes to nurture students to not only obtain the skills and technique in piano playing, but also to develop a passion in music that can last a lifetime. Besides leading students to achieve merits and distinctions in their piano exams, Phoebe also organises student concerts every 1-2 years to allow students to hone their performing skills and for students to learn from one another.
