The Electone Festival Experience
Music Director: How long have you been learning with Mdm. Wooh?
Matthew: I started playing the Electone since I was 4 years old, and enrolled under the Music Act. When I was Primary 6, I started learning with Mdm. Wooh. So, it’s been approximately 6 years.
Music Director: What made you decide to participate in EF 2018?
Matthew: I decided to take part in this year's Electone Festival in order to gain more stage experience, and also to use this opportunity to broaden my perspective of different arranging styles. 2 years ago was my 1st time in EF, this is my second time.
Music Director: How was the experience?
Matthew: It was rather nerve-wrecking just before I stepped onto the stage. However, after sitting in front of the Electone, I momentarily forgot all the anxiety I had beforehand, and managed to only focus on doing my best. It was also a great learning experience to see the techniques and splendid arrangements of the other competitors.
Music Director: Any comments to add?
Matthew: I am glad to have been able to showcase my performing abilities, and will continue to work hard to grow as a musician. I hope to bring out the best of my abilities in the subsequent Electone Festivals.
