Gillian has played the piano almost all her life. In her piano studio(est. 2001), she believes in building good foundations and working with students according to their learning style – each person has a unique set of likes and strengths. She cut her solo debut album(a compendium of Bach, Beethoven, Brahms etc) while working in the Seattle, Washington area nearly 10 years ago. Once upon a time, she received her Bachelor of Arts in piano from Taylor University, followed by a Masters in Piano Pedagogy & Performance from Southern Methodist University. Aside from music, Gillian appreciates good design, the arts in all its forms, other cultures and a good laugh.
Eileen showed interest in music at an early age, enrolling for piano lessons when she was just 6. She continued her lessons up till 17, where she obtained her ABRSM Grade 8 Piano Performance and Grade 6 Theory of Music. Following that, she proceeded to enrol herself into LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore under the tutelage of Mr. Frank DeMeglio for 3 years, graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music, specialising in Classical Performance (Piano) in 2019. While she was undertaking her undergraduate studies, Eileen took part in various projects such as winning the Annual Piano Concerto Competition in 2018, playing the Piano Concerto No. 21 in C Major written by Mozart featuring her own lead-ins and cadenzas. In the same year, she also directed an interdisciplinary performance entitled, Piano Voyage: The Time Traveller’s Memoir held in Lasalle College of the Arts, featuring animators, and dancers who were an integral part to the performance. Eileen strives to be a better educator for her students, stemming from her personal experience with one herself.
