Claireen Poh began learning piano from Mrs Kerri-Lee Corkery at Evolution Music Studio when she was six years old. Under Mrs Corkery’s passionate guidance, she has grown leaps and bounds in her music journey and absolutely loves playing on the piano. One of her favorite things to do is to improvise the pieces she learns. Often, she would try to incorporate different songs together, working on transposing and changing tempos to make the music flow smoothly. Currently, she is preparing for her grade 5 piano examinations. Apart from piano, Claireen is also a chorister with the Australian Girls Choir and is part of AGC specialist group. As an avid reader, she appreciates a wide range of books, ranging from fiction books about cultures, plants and rocks to nonfiction books about fantasies and adventures. Claireen is a grade four student leader at Wilandra Rise Primary School, who enjoys spending her free time writing and engaging in her creativity in designing.
