Vincent Liu online Finalist
I love music! Music will always be my greatest passion!
I have been learning the piano since I was 4 years old.
I have been playing double bass continually as the first chair in the school orchestra for 3 years already.
Biannual non-profit recital performance and some competitions have given me a lot of stage experience. Playing the piano is one of my favorite things to do. Music helps me whenever I am sad or stressful. It really helps clear my mind.
ONE GOOD THIS ABOUT MUSIC, WHEN IT HITS YOU, YOU FEEL NO PAIN……
