Last week I represented Earth Tone Music Academy (ETMA) at Casio Malaysia’s piano launch event. Previously, I got the chance to teach on the Grand Hybrid at ETMA and I’m amazed to see a digital piano having hammers!
The event featured Malaysia’s pianists, Tay Cher Siang and Leonard Yeap, playing both duets and solos of classical and jazz piano.
This was the goofy side of Cher Siang as he switches piano with Leonard mid-performance of “Billie’s Bounce”. I love how they’re always borrowing each other’s improvisation ideas. Cher Siang is definitely a virtuosic pianist while Leonard composition ideas are very melodic which I see it being reflected in his improvised ideas too. Much to be learnt from these two great minds!
