A graduate of Berklee College of Music, Yvonne has recently completed a four-year Bachelor of Music degree in Film Scoring summa cum laude. She currently writes music for various media such as radio dramas, podcasts, video games and independent films, and teaches private music lessons where she resides in Singapore.
Yvonne's first foray into the world of music was at age four, when she began lessons on music appreciation and keyboard studies. Piano became her first love, and she soon discovered composition while making up tunes at the keyboard a year later. While she continued her studies at the keyboard throughout her schooling years, Yvonne remained interested in writing music, and upon graduating high school was accepted to the prestigious Berklee College of Music, from which she has now graduated.
During her schooling years in Singapore, Yvonne was involved in numerous musical activities, including an award-winning semi-professional Chinese orchestra playing pipa and liuqin, as well as her school choir, where she served as pianist and section leader, clinching various national and international awards.
Yvonne has also won awards in international piano competitions and performed frequently at well-known concert venues under the tutelage of renowned pianist, educator and adjudicator Benjamin Loh. When she moved to Boston to study at Berklee College of Music, she was personally tutored by acclaimed jazz pianist Bob Winter, and studied conducting and music studies under Isaiah Jackson.
Today, Yvonne has returned to her homeland where she is pursuing a career in composing and teaching. She continues to write music for clients worldwide.
