The Academy brings to you a conversation of how far young people can go, and what we can do to provide an environment for them to thrive. We talk to Chloe Chua, the Singaporean violin prodigy and Junior category first prize winner of the Menuhin Competition, who shares with us her musical adventures and what it takes to reach the highest levels as a young musician. And then we bring in Kevin Field, Principal of Bentley Music Academy in Malaysia on keeping young people engaged, the role of parents, and the art of teaching.
Participants will be guided through a series of fun, instrument-specific exercises to aid in their technical development. There will be concurrent sessions for piano, strings and voice.
