Conversation with Gladys Chua Wan Yi - Yamaha Student of 12 Years
17 year old Gladys Chua Wan Yi, Yamaha Piano Course student at Hougang branch had a chat with us.
How long have you been a piano student in Yamaha Music School?
I joined Yamaha when I was four, so it’s been a good twelve years.
What grade have you achieved?
For piano, I have ABRSM Grade 7 Practical and Grade 5 Theory.
What were your results like in the most recent piano exams?
I scored a Merit for Grade 7 Practical.
What is your parent's opinion of the piano lessons in YMS?
My parents don’t really have an opinion. But it was my piano teacher that helped me grow a passion in piano otherwise I would have felt that it was a chore to attend lessons. The lessons are great, and I learn a lot of songs other than just exam pieces that not only expand my repertoire but improve my playing in different styles. Parents are just trusting Yamaha and enjoying the music I bring back home.
