I know many people who play music. I myself once played music too. However, it is often said that a successful musical career is difficult to be achieved. Not if you have a good music education I’ll say.


The International College of Music (ICOM) is one of the very few music colleges in our country and is Asia Pacific's leading music college. I know right, how amazing is that?

I had the chance to visit the college and watch some performances recently. The moment I step into the building I saw students chattering away, happily holding on to their Macbook Pros and some with musical instruments. These people, I tell you, its like they have some kind of special aura or something. They all seem so bubbly, each and every one of them. Maybe this is the effect music has on people.

I was informed that the performances I was about to witness that night aren’t just any performances. They are the winners of first semester’s weekly performances. Yup, all gathered up to perform on that particular evening and a winner will be chosen among the winners.

Check these out, some of the outstanding performances:

Farai Gumbo with his own composition, "Like I Do". He is quoted to be the next John Mayer and you’ll probably agree after you hear him sing.

Behind the baby grand piano is Loh Ui Li playing "Misty Dialogue" and "Tom & Jerry". Her technique of playing the piano will leave you speechless. People will actually believe that she’s the great granddaughter of Mozart.

The acoustics were very well-played too. Here is Nikhil Hogan playing "Questions".

All the way from Persia, Misagh and his band, playing the song "Comfortably Numb" in an extremely wicked style.

"Room 335" by Mohamad Anugrah Swastadi.

This is Timothy(who was also in the previous band if you notice) playing the bass to "Walk Over". Check out his funky bass.

One of the final performances of the day, a very happy and upbeat song called "Cubana Cubana" by Jessica Yap. This is a song put together by many different percussions. Makes me feel like dancing around like Tarzan.

In the end, a winner had to be chosen. The judges made up their mind and the winner of the 1st semester's Friday performances is none other than..

*drumrolls*

Loh Ui Li! Needless to say, this is something she greatly deserve for her excellent performances. Go Ui Li!

The performances have proven the abilities of ICOM students, at the same time bringing out their own unique personalities. Maybe one day you’ll see the above students on the tv screen or something.

Yup, so that sums up my ICOM experience. Off I go to perform with my imaginary guitar at my own concert now.
