Jingyao’s engagement with music is very special. Unlike other musicians playing traditional instruments, she works to redefine the role of her instrument — the traditional Chinese instrument Yang Qin (Dulcimer). Well-versed in the Chinese music tradition, pop and jazz, Jingyao has been given the opportunity by her teachers to marry tradition with modernity by performing Yang Qin in contemporary music. She has also performed at Hood Bar, LASALLE and City Harvest Church. Apart from performing, she also teaches music in her spare time. She is interested in studying and understanding different genres of music as she believes this makes her a better musician in both traditional or contemporary forms of music. She aims to become an educator who can effectively bring out the potential in music students, especially those gifted in music.
