Musical Education

Vanessa got her Bachelor of Music from Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, University of Melbourne in 2017 where she studied piano with Glenn Riddle and violin with Markiyan Melnychenko.

Vanessa was born in Jakarta, December 1995 and 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), Felicity Baldock (Voice) and Sylvia Wiryadi (Voice). She had piano masterclasses with Prof. Raphael Lutchevsky, DR Christine Kefferstan, Daniel Herscovitch, Jacqueline Leung, Krystian Tcakewski and Geoffrey Saba. 

A musical theatre enthusiast, 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.
