Nurhidayah Binte Mohammad Azman
Joined LAA from 2012 to 2016
“I feel very privileged to be able to pursue my musical passion without having to worry about the financial costs involved.
Through LAA, I have learned a lot such as music improvisation, arrangement and composition of original pieces. This is possible because of a very supportive teacher, Mr Amin. I can now play a range of instruments including the piano, guitar, drums, angklung and ukulele. The music foundation in LAA has enabled me to expand my knowledge of a wide of instruments and I hope this will help to fulfill my dream of becoming a composer in the future.”
Hidayah feels that her passion for music was reinforced as LAA provided her with a platform to acquire new skills and knowledge which she could apply to her musical endeavours. She aspires to pursue music on a higher level. In 2016, Hidayah performed for Singapore Rhapsodies at the National Gallery Singapore, a student concert series which features young aspiring musicians and has been involved in performances at public venues such as Paragon and Clementi Mall.
