From Clementi to Carnegie

“The trailblazing role model for string players, and for violinists especially, is Siow Lee Chin, the first Singaporean to win multiple gold medals internationally (including at the 1994 Szeryng Competition), the first Singaporean to study at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia and the first Singaporean violinist to combine a solo career with a tenured faculty position abroad.” -The Strad, essential reading for the string music world since 1890 (United Kingdom).

Lee-Chin is honoured to share her musical journey in her first book From Clementi to Carnegie which the internationally respected Strad Magazine praised as an “inspiration to young performers”.

Songs My Father Taught Me

“The selections are exquisitely arranged and emotionally rendered — she has dedicated these songs to her father, who was her first violin teacher and the sentimentality and the love comes through in a huge and personably accessible way. Absolutely compelling. It is near impossible to listen to some of these selections without crying. A wonderful father’s day gift!”
