Verified profile

| More information available at janechan.org | A composer, a percussionist, a drummer, a singer – you can bet Jane’s there if you need a musician. Her inability to turn down any musical opportunities has been requiring attention since she first learnt the piano and percussion; and the same goes for sports (never worry anymore if you’re missing a basketball, volleyball, badminton, or even hockey player). Growing up in Hong Kong, Jane was influenced by warm, fuzzy church music, awe-inspiring orchestral masterpieces and light, friendly 00’s pop. Starting with her debut with the world premiere of marimba solo piece With My Heart and appearing as featured artist on radio programmes at the age of ten, Jane’s musical career rolled on to become an avalanche in her life. Reading English Literature at the University of York, Jane swam between the heaps of books and films exploring the prowess of the literary arts, while gaining interest in the musical counterpart in said films. Discovering the beauty of composition under the tutelage of Roger Marsh, Jane developed an (almost unhealthy) restless yearning for expression and resonance. Studying with music professors from Harvard University and Princeton University, Jane started messing with Ableton and we have heard that since then, she curated DJ mixes to quench her love for diverse pop. At Cambridge, Jeremy Thurlow and Richard Causton taught her Sibelius’ sneaky little tricks during her MPhil in Composition at Newnham College; while two-times grammy awardee and Edition Peter’s artist Paul Phoenix taught her the importance of consistency in both performance and… cheese.

Jane Chan is a most distinguished and versatile young musician who succeeds in areas far beyond her training as a composer. On completing her MPhil at the University of Cambridge, she works as a song-writer, composer/arranger, concert percussionist, and singer. Her unique and vibrant approach to music is largely a result of her diverse experiences in the UK, the US, Korea, and Hong Kong, as well as her interesting background in literature and psychology.
