Plays a 3/4 Size BV5SE Violin Duration of Learning: about 5 years Started at BVMS Since: April 2019
For this concert, Tiffany plays the whole four movements of Handel’s Sonata No. 3 in F Major, exploring some Baroque genre of classical music as a contrasts with the Seitz Student Violin concertos that she had performed in the previous concert. The work consist of a slow-fast-slow-fast arrangement through the movements. The fast movements are exciting and dance like. Tiffany started with Vivienne about a Grade 4 standard, since then Tiffany has shown considerable improvement in technique and position and note recognition as she had prepared almost the whole piece by her own as a project especially utilizing the 2nd and 4th positions. We will work towards a Grade 8 ABRSM now as she prepares for her PSLE this year.

Hooi Ngoh spent the term learning focusing on violin technique and is putting into practice some of what she has learnt with the piece Aires Varies No. 1 by Charles Dancla. Despite her busy work schedule being a mother of two young children as well, she is prepared and well practiced each week for the classes. Our aim is to finish up the Grade 8 examinations in the coming months as she has been setting this as her goal for some time. Vivienne is determined to help to her to achieve this.
