Pursuing my passion to perform

THEMOST memorable moments I have had as a student at Yew Chung International School of Shanghai are the ones where I was on stage performing. As a musician, my journey in the performing arts started seven years ago, at the age of 10, when I went on stage for the first time to perform a piano solo at a school talent show in front of a crowd of around 100 people. As nerve-racking as it was, the experi­ence sparked in me an interest in performing that has never been extinguished.

Fast-forward seven years, I am now a Year 13 student, and per­forming is a regular part of my school life. Every year, I perform at formal recitals, winter and sum­mer concerts and social events. The Performing Arts Department at YCIS Shanghai never ceases to amaze me in how many opportu­nities it has to offer. In my most recent performance this year, I played a piano solo, an original composition, and joined a band to perform a composition by a classmate. Aside from me, stu­dents from Years 10 and 11 also serenaded us with piano solos, group performances and even a traditional Chinese ensemble performance.

To me, one of the greatest things about performing is how motivat­ing the thought of sharing your craft with an audience is, as well as the reward that comes when you bow to a round of applause. These are some the memories that will stay with me even after I graduate and carry on my pursuit of music crazies

At university. For the past seven years, performing at this school has motivated me, inspired me and challenged me to improve. That’s what I love about performing.
