Collaborative Piano : All Occasions Welcome !!
Recommendation from Prof. Marina Goglidze-Mdivani
It is my pleasure to recommend Yu-Ting Stevia Gong to be an accompanist. I have known Yu-Ting for the past five years, having served as both her piano teacher and her supervisor in the Artist Diploma and Master of Music degree program at McGill University. Based on Yu-Ting’s performance, including attendance and class participation, I would rate Yu-Ting’s overall academic achievement in my class as outstanding. Her mature music organizational skills, her sharp musical sensitivity, her versatility in playing different repertoire, and her attention to the finest details are just four of her qualities that display her musical talent. She is professional, kind, organized and easy to get along with. Yu-Ting is an outstanding student in both the musical and academic fields at McGill University, as demonstrated by the Schulich Scholarships she has won over the past two years.
Her fundamental piano technique is very solid and it has enabled her to master many heavy and very difficult pieces at a young age. Very often her performances well display the deep meaning of the music, and the sound quality of her playing is always rich and clear, with formidable power.
In conclusion, I would highly recommend Yu-Ting Stevia Gong to be an excellent accompanist. If her performance in my class is any indication of how she would perform in the future, Yu-Ting would definitely be a positive addition to the piano accompanist program! Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact with me anytime.
