Chia Yiu, Music Director

Chia Yiu pursued music at “A” level at Bruton School For Girls, Somerset, England. She continued her musical studies as a full time student at Trinity College of Music, London, where she studied piano with Anthony Lindsay and earned the Licentiate Diploma (LTCL) in teaching. She took up the flute as her second study with James Dowel and achieved the Grade 5 certification. Upon completion of the three year course, she was awarded a Graduate Diploma (GTCL), which is equivalent to a university first degree. Her musical experiences include participation in orchestra summer camps in the UK, accompanist for various instruments, ensembles and at a ballet school. She is active in organising and participating in special musical events and recitals. In addition, she taught piano to individuals and groups at Yamaha Music School. She also serves actively as pianist, band leader and choir conductor in various churches. Her latest achievement is earning the Grade 5 certification in violin, awarded by ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music). Chia Yiu’s passion is to inspire the young to pursue their talent in performing arts, such as music, drama and dance. At Westlake International School, she pursues her passion to develop students’ confidence to perform, and to inculcate fun learning within a creative musical environment. She believes the school opens the doors of opportunity through the music curriculum, school productions, participating in the orchestra or choir, and by learning new instruments.
