After 3 years in Singapore Polytechnic’s Diploma in Music and Audio Technology, I discovered a strong passion for songwriting and events. Finding inspiration from movies, poetry and daily life, songwriting became an essential form of self-expression for me.

I joined this programme to find out more about the different aspects of the industry that I have not been exposed to and hopefully figure out an area that I could be a part of in the future.
