NEC's students meet one-on-one each week with a faculty artist to perfect their craft. As each one leaves NEC to make their mark in the performance world, they present a full, professional recital that is free and open to the public. It's your first look at the artists of tomorrow.

    My 2 years at NEC have been nothing short of incredible; it is in this safe bubble that I have been comforted by its wonderful people and mentors.

    My biggest thanks go to my wonderful teacher, Vivian – for never ceasing to believe and support me in my various pursuits,

    as well as my parents – for having faith in me so I can embark on a path less travelled.

    Special thanks go to Ms Cathy Chan, and my supporters back in Singapore – Uncle Kah Tee and Aunty Cat – thank you for everything and for helping make my education here possible!

    A huge part of my musical identity here at NEC also comes from playing with many of my extraordinarily talented friends – thank you for creating inspiring and uplifting musical moments with me! I have learnt so much from every single one of you, and I will continue to, for the rest of my life.
