Some of my piano videos can be found here https://www.youtube.com/@F.Adebiyi/videos https://pan.baidu.com/s/19k7uOrwmuFt3Q9jN0rctHQ?pwd=8888 I am a British classical musician. I recently graduated from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire with a master’s degree in Music Composition. In January 2023, I arrived in China. It is my desire to contribute to the special, thriving artistic world of China. I am firmly committed to both the preservation and continuation of classical music. It is my life’s work to make classical music relevant to both our current contemporary society and generations to come. Fundamentally, this can be achieved through the active performance and creation of new pieces which inspire the performer – and encapsulate the hearts and minds of our audience. My recent employment history shows that so far, I have consistently pursued this aim through various teaching and educational roles.
