...I never thought I would have completed my grade 8 in three years and come this far a journey playing the cello.

Hey Teacher Gerald! I just want to express my appreciation for your excellent teaching and guidance which led me to 2 Distinctions in a row!! Really over the moon.

Thank you for being so kind and humble. I’m really thankful for all the opportunities you’ve given me. From performing at Gramercy’s opening to attending your Gehu workshop. Not forgetting the multiple concerts you’ve invited me to go for and the experiences of being a cello coach at SMSS and Sembawang Primary. I’m indeed very lucky! It was also a great honour to be able to witness your wedding and TENG ensemble’s great success.

I never thought I would have completed my grade 8 in three years and come this far a journey playing the cello. You made me realize my potential in music and I’m so grateful for that. Thank you so much!! I look forward to advancing my cello journey with you!! Cheers!
