Supported Scholar 2022/23:
Hao Zi Yoh is a young pianist from Malaysia. She particularly enjoys being able to take part in competitions; meeting other pianists from different parts of the world and knowing all the competitors are striving to be the very best version of themselves, despite being under huge pressure. Hao Zi believes these experiences are hugely important if she is to become a professor in the future. She feels that she will be able to better help students to learn to deal with the pressure and still enjoy making music in the long-run. Whenever Hao Zi travels back to Malaysia, she organises performances, masterclasses and talks to help develop the classical music scene in the younger generations. During the London lockdown, Hao Zi did various livestreams as fundraisers for charity organisations, chamber music arrangements and collaborations with violinists in different cities, and was also part of the Henley Festival Digital Edition. The lockdown also opened up many radio interview opportunities such as BBC Berkshire, Scala, alongside podcasts and newspaper interviews in the UK, Hong Kong and Malaysia. Read more here.
