DIANA CHONG

MUSICIAN | PIANIST | MUSIC EDUCATOR

ABOUT DIANA

Singapore-based pianist Diana Chong performs in both solo and collaborative settings.

 

Over the last three years, Diana has also been exploring her interest in music education, giving piano lessons in a one-to-one setting.

When Diana first started piano at the age of six, it was not love at first sight. It was during her O’Level Music studies that her interest and attachment to music blossomed under the guidance of Ms. Jane Chua. It was also during this period that she obtained her Grade 8 Piano certification from ABRSM (The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music).

 

After her secondary school studies, Diana decided to try a different side of the arts,  pursuing a Diploma in Film Studies. She was reminded of her passion for piano during one of her modules which involved Film Music. This led her to continue her music studies, enrolling in the Bachelor of Arts (Hons) Classical Performance program at LASALLE College of the Arts.  She studied piano under the tutelage of Mr. Arkadiuz Bialak and graduated in 2020.

 

During her studies, Diana proactively took part in both performing and organizing the college’s public performances. These include Mount Elizabeth Hospital “Sounds of Healing,” Piano Recital Festival @ Aureus Academy, and Piano Voyage: The Time Traveller’s Memoir. In 2019, Diana was both the Media Director and a performer in the annual LASALLE Classical concert series, Piano Voyage: Myths and Legends “Into the Underworld”. On top of creating event posters, marketing materials, and teaser videos, as part of the show’s media materials, Diana also performed in ensembles which involved cross-disciplinary collaboration with dancers, and an eight hands two pianos grand finale.

 

Over the course of her music studies, Diana had the opportunity to explore other genres of music and she instantly fell in love with all of them; music such as Pop, Jazz, Rock, Brazilian, and even Fusion. She hopes to explore, experience, and even take part in the different and unique cultures.

Although she chose to pursue music, Diana did not leave her film days behind. She absolutely loves and still does freelance photography and editing from time to time. You can find her behind her camera snapping away, or in the comfort of her home editing videos.

TEACHER DIANA

Since 2017, Diana has been conducting piano lessons in a one-to-one setting. She has taught students between the ages of 6-13, preparing them for the ABRSM Exam syllabus.

Under her guidance, all of Diana’s students have achieved Distinctions and Merits in the ABRSM examinations. One of her students, who had previously failed Grade 2 piano practical exam in a music school, was able to score a Merit after joining Diana’s studio.

As a musician and a music educator, Diana strongly believes that learning music influences a person's holistic development,  as well as encouraging the ability to be entertaining and creative.

 

Diana's three-fold aim as a piano teacher is to deliver the knowledge, artistry and delicacy of classical music to future generations.

"Hi Diana I really want to thank you for your guidance and coaching to Kayla. It's really evident the progress she has made. I wished she could have learnt from you earlier.  I hope she will continue to play with love. Like you."
