Musical Education

Born in Jakarta, December 1995 in a family of non-musicians, Vanessa Tunggal started her piano lesson at the age of 4. Her past teachers include Yulia Yahya (Piano), Dr Pinkcheer Tamio (Piano), Nathania Karina (Piano), Prima Muchlisin (Violin) and Sylvia Wiryadi (Voice). She had piano masterclasses with Prof. Raphael Lutchevsky, DR Christine Kefferstan, Daniel Herscovitch, Jacqueline Leung, Krystian Tcakewski and Geoffrey Saba. She is currently a student of Glenn Riddle (Piano) and Markiyan Melnychenko (Violin) at Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, University of Melbourne. She is also a voice student of Felicity Baldock.

Vanessa loves to procrastinate through life by making puns and laughing at anything. However, she spends most of her time telling people that she is practicing while she is eating ice cream.
