    I would like to thank my studio teacher, Professor Donald Weilerstein,
    for his patience and guidance for the past two years. A previous teacher of mine mentioned that my personality and musicality have blossomed after these two years. I think it is all because of how great of a person Professor Weilerstein is! I am incredibly thankful for being in his studio, that I get to learn a lot from him and my amazing studiomates!

    I am also very blessed to have Dina around!
    She taught me a lot of collaborative skills and musical ideas when we play together! I enjoy playing with her so much! And I am grateful for having her support as well!

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank Professor Soovin Kim
    for taking me under his wings these couple of months, also for being so generous to me under all kinds of circumstances!

    I would like to show appreciation to my chamber music coaches these two years,
    Professor Donald Palma, Kristopher Tong, Merry Peckham and Yeesun Kim.
    The passion they have for chamber music really inspired me to start trying to pursue a professional chamber music career!

    So much love to my parents and family overseas in Hong Kong and also to my awesome friends who I spent amazing times with during these two years!

    Thank you Hong Kong Jockey Club Music and Dance Fund for full scholarship and stipend for my two-year MM program here at NEC!

    Lastly, I would like to show gratitude to my previous teachers for looking after me still from far away! Searching for opportunities for me, helping me pave my future potential career paths! So blessed to have you all in my life!”
