Although the children barely knew one another before playing in the ensemble together, individually they already show great promise and talent in their individual musical instruments of choice. After practicing together in the ensemble for half a year, they have got to know one another better musically to be well-synchronized in the chosen pieces of their repertoire. With passionate guidance from their teachers, the Amazing Trio has won numerous awards in live ensemble and online competitions locally and overseas. They have also performed together in various government, private and corporate events. All these experiences have given them good chemistry and helped them grow individually as budding musicians when they play together, producing an amazing sound. Most importantly, the ensemble music allows the children to express and explore their love of music through multiple channels apart from their individual instruments.
