Fanny started her musical training in her native Hong Kong. She first learned how to play the piano, then she sang in a girls’ school choir that won many awards. At 16, Fanny won the HK Annual Speech and Music Festival in the Female Voice Duet Open Category with her singing partner, Ella Kung (also a voice student of Ella Kiang). Soon, Fanny studied voice with soprano legend Ella Kiang. After coming to Canada, Fanny continued to study voice with Norma Tetreau (RCM), Ginette Duplessis (RCM), Robert Poliquin (McGill Con.), Valerie Kinslow (Concordia), and piano with Russian pianist Larisa Trubashnik (RCM). While still in College, Fanny worked as a music instructor for young children (age 3-5) and preparatory choir (age 5-6) at the renowned HK Yip’s Children’s Choral and Performing Arts Centre. After moving to Canada, she worked as one of the pioneer teachers at the Canada Yip’s Music Centre in Markham when they first opened in October, 1990. The year after, Fanny moved to Montreal to pursue her music studies at the McGill Conservatory of Music. Later, Fanny graduated with distinctions first from Concordia University, then from McGill University. After obtaining her teaching licence, Fanny has been working as a music specialist in various schools in the Montreal area, including McGill Conservatory. In Montreal, Fanny was a principal singer with the Montreal West Operatic Society. She also sang with the Lyric Theatre Singers.
