My name is Toby Tan, 12ys old, Singaporean but I went to Indonesia to study and learn Music 2 years ago until the pandemic brought me back. For the past year, I've been having remote online school & piano studies via zoom. While I miss the face-to-face learning and loss of opportunities to attend music festivals, overseas performances and competitions; I gained a lot from independent remote learnings and exploring wide varieties of new repertoires every month and was able to put them out for online competitions for Jury feedback. 2020 has been a very fulfilling year for me, I hope 2021 will be even more progressive with doors opening up and looking forward to new possibilities.
