Colleen played the piano at the age of four. Shw was admitted to the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts three years later. She excelled under the guidance of artist-in-residence Eleanor Wong and received a Jockey Club Scholarship to enter the academy full time.Colleen's talent and hard work earned her fist class honour in her Bachelor's degree in piano performance. She completed her professional diploma in 2003. She has since studied in Germany under renowned concert pianist Arie Vardi at the Hochschulef Musik and Theatre in Hannover, Germany. The school is a fitting ground for Colleen, a performer who regards discipline and toughness as the key ingredients for musical or athletic success."I see so many people tiring in the middle of competition," Colleen says, recalling her trip to Warsaw. "I feel that pianists or other musicians are like athletes. You need great physical effort, aw well as concentration to succeed."Producer: Lily Yu
