Vivienne is a classically trained pianist. She had started her accompaniment journey with the Singapore Chinese Girls' School choir in Secondary School attaining many gold awards for SYF and also for various musicals. She continued using this valuable experience during 20 over years of teaching with her students. It is convenient to have Vivienne to accompany for students taking the Grade 1-8 examinations as sessions can occur anytime organically during lesson time.
For recordings, there will be more flexibility in retakes and may save cost on additionally session with another accompanist. But please note that for some students taking the Grade 5 examinations and above, it may be more efficient and beneficial that an external accompanist is hired. At all times, Vivienne encourages parents to accompany their own children if they are able to play the piano for the examinations.
Using Vivienne as the accompanist for your exams is not compulsory and you are able to also engage other pianists for the exam purposes. But do note that they will need to attend at least 4- 8 lessons with Vivienne (not including the actual examination appointment) to facilitate a good outcome for the examination.
Recording costs and staging costs and packages are not included in these Accompaniment Fees and will be separately regarded.
