Testimonial from Student – Heng Qi Yang

Teacher : Ms Judy Yap

My mum enrolled me in the Yamaha Junior Course at age 4. Initially, I had wanted to stop lessons altogether, however gradually I began to learn to appreciate music deeply and the subjects in the lessons as well. Through the continual lessons, my playing and listening abilities have been developed. Recently, I was happy I could do an arrangement of a pop song for piano, purely by listening.

I am also pleased that my composition was selected for Junior Original Concert, which allowed me to explore creating music.

I went on to achieve the

-International Youth Music Competition, Composition category, 3rd Prize

-1st Joyeux Music International Festival and Competition for Young Pianists, Grade 8 category, Merit

-London Young Musician, Original Composition category, Gold Prize

-London Young Musician, Romantic Period Music category, Bronze Prize

-VI. Danubia Talents International Online Music Competition, Piano Four Hands category, Second Prize

-ABRSM Performance Grade 8 Distinction

-VIII Odin International Music Online Competition, Piano 4 Hands category, Second Prize

Currently, I am preparing to take the Yamaha Higher Grade 5 Piano exam. In addition, I am working on Romantic period pieces in preparation for the next competition. Learning music has taught me patience. This is especially true when recording for competitions or exams. I hope to continue improving my piano techniques, and also learn valuable life lessons in future.
