What is the programme about?
Our programme involves mentees (youths) being matched up with mentors, musicians that have an idea of how to find their way around the music industry. It will include a two session sharing session, and a concert. Through this programme, we hope to inspire these youths to follow their passion and provide a platform for them to showcase their talents. We hope to see these youths improve themselves and would love to be a part of their learning process.
We have successfully concluded the 2 mentor sharing sessions and the mentees are currently preparing for the finale concert which was held on 29th August 2014 at the YMCA Singapore Auditorium. We would like to thank our extremely patient and helpful mentors: Nathan Hartono, Jerry Ng, Dex Wong from Linch Agency, Victoria and Edwin from The Summer State and Vanessa Faith :)
Vanessa Faith found her immense love for song composition at the age of 14, writing songs on the guitar and keyboard that she taught herself to play. She has performed at a variety of events, from schools, to private parties, to mainstream gigs such as the recent PAssion Fun Around The Bay, MeRadio Rocks the Marina and other various stage productions over the years. Apart from playing the guitar and the keyboards, she also features other miscellaneous instruments in her songwriting such as the ukulele, the xylophone, harmonica as well as percussions.
Vanessa took part in Singapore Noise Apprenticeship in 2010 to realise her dream of writing and sharing her original songs. She also won the "My Maestro Muse" award at M:Idea Youth Choice Awards, in January 2013. Vanessa is also currently endorsed by Gibson Singapore.

Yoke Ling & Charlie
An opportunity to perform at a wedding sparked the formation of their duo, and many collaborations followed. This is despite their entirely different music preferences! They believe this is because opposites attract. :) Subscribe to Yoke ling's youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/yokelinggg
