About Winnie:

Born and raised in Australia, Winnie found her love for the piano at the age of 7. She was awarded her licentiate Lmus.A diploma at the age of 14 as a student of Margaret Hair. She is currently under Professor Graham Scott's guidance at the Royal Northern College of Music in the third year of her undergraduate studies.

Winnie would like to extend her deepest gratitude to the Leverhulme Arts Scholarships and the Waverley Fund. This has allowed her to realize her dream of overseas studies. She is grateful to have received The Marjorie Clementi Memorial Award in 2021. She is currently proudly supported by Kawai Australia for her studies.

Making her debut at 12, she performed Beethoven’s First Piano Concerto in Verbrugghen Hall. This was followed by Grieg's Piano Concerto the following year, both under the baton of John Ockwell. She won the Sydney Eisteddfod Kawai Piano Scholarship in 2022. She was recently selected for the RNCM Concerto Competition in 2023 where she will perform Beethoven's 4th piano concerto with an orchestra.

As an enthusiastic chamber musician, Winnie is a member of the Ayla piano quintet and RNCM Songsters. This is a specially selected group of pianists and singers who take part in external concert performances and receive specialist coaching. She was selected for the Williams-Howard Prize in 2023 with her voice partner mezzo-soprano Morgana Warren-Jones; a competition that celebrates composers of African heritage. She looks forward to performing at the Buxton International Festival's "Colour My Song" concert in July. She is also looking forward to performing with the Hallé in June at the Bridgewater Hall "Animal Magic" concert with her piano duo partner Rose McLachlan.

Her constant pursuit of knowledge also drives her to seek world-class pedagogues. She has participated in short-term exchanges and numerous international masterclasses with world-renowned pedagogues including Anton Nel, John Perry, Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, Stephen Hough, Phillip Cassard and Robert McDonald. Hugely involved and passionate about pedagogy herself, she currently holds 9 years of teaching experience. She gave masterclasses to the University of New South Wales students in 2022.

Winnie is a piano sales and teaching professional at Forsyths Music Shop in Manchester. With expertise in piano sales and instruction, she is committed to helping students develop their musical talents. She also helps everyone find the most suitable instrument to suit their needs.

When Winnie is not playing the piano, she learns to tune and restore pianos. She is an apprentice assisting and learning from piano technician Phillip Simmons of Metropolitan Piano Co.
