Born in Singapore, Leonard (aka. Pianist7137) started learning piano as a child but only developed a passion for music at the age of 13 after listening to Maksim Mrvica’s “The Piano Player” album which was a gift from his grandmother. During that time he was under the tutelage of Winnie Tsin.
Leonard has also received several awards including first prize of Emmanuel music school competition “Musical Cheers” after being taught by Kannie Kee for a short period of time and a silver award for the second performers’ festival 2008 held by the Singapore Music Teachers Assiociation.
