LUKE POMROY

Luke is an experienced and dedicated teacher, professional accompanist, part-time composer and wannabe rock god.

His love of music spans many instruments and genres. A typical day for Luke will

involve practicing Schubert on piano in the morning, teaching jazz improvisation in

the afternoon, and rocking out on guitar in the evening in a “glam rock” cover band.

Luke loves helping students find what they truly want out of music and setting them

on the path to achieve it.

ADELINE NG

Adeline began piano at age 6 and started teaching at 15. Growing up in a family of classically trained musicians, her fondest memories were of her father singing excerpts from Puccini’s operas and attending concerts conducted by her uncle. Today, she hopes to transmit those same feelings of joy and elation to her students, creating a platform for them to freely express who they are as individuals. In her spare time, you can probably find her being bitten by mosquitoes whilst stargazing.
