Two students from our studio entered in the Pacific International Youth Music Festival and just performed in the past week. It was such a great experience for both of them as well as for Melody and Naoki. We now know the standards for the young pianists in the Greater Vancouver area.

Although both of them did not advance to play in the Gala concert, they presented themselves on the stage very excellently, even though it was their first music festival/exam. We enjoyed our students’ performances which were full of personality. Techniques are very important, but on top of basic techniques, creativity and comprehension of music are what will stand out in a performance.

We’ll keep encouraging each student’s creativity and imagination, while grounding them in practical music knowledge and comprehension, in order to establish an even stronger foundation! Looking forward to more festivals in the future with more students participating!
