Philip Chan's profile picture
Pianist
Shildon

With my ability and experience in arranging pop music as well as in improvisatory pop piano performing, I am confident that I can create suitable vibes and atmosphere at diverse venues and occasions and bring them to life with my meticulous improvisatory pop piano music. Public Performance Performances in public include: In the year 2008, I arranged and performed a piano accompaniment for a medley for Pentecost Church at the Hong Kong Academic Community Hall. In the year 2005, I arranged and performed a solo piano medley in my primary school's 50th anniversary concert at Hong Kong Cultural Centre. In the year 2001, I won the first runner-up prize(open class) in the Hong Kong pop song piano performing competition. In the same year I have performed improvised pop piano at shopping malls in Hong Kong. In the years 1994-1998, I gave numerous piano concerts in Plymouth College performing both classical and pop improvisatory piano music. In the year 2018, I have also worked as a TV Advert music producer (collaborating with Director Joe Leung) in Hong Kong. In this project I was responsible for the entire production of a TV advert song that was broadcasted on a TV channel(TVB) in Hong Kong. I was responsible for composing and arranging the advert song, mentoring the singer in the recording session, as well as producing the singer's vocal track and mixing of the TV advert song. I had to compose and produce the song in such a way that it matches the vibe of the TV advert, and that the duration of the song fits exactly the duration of the advert. AWARDS 2001 First Runner-up(open class), Hong Kong Pop song Piano Competition (Hong Kong) 1995 Winner of ‘Young Musician of the Year” presented by Rotary Club (Plymouth)

Working with Philip is my utmost pleasure during the production of this TV advert. Philip has the capacity, ability and most importantly the talent to take up responsibility for the entire production of this advert music. From composing, arranging, recording to mixing of the advert song, he has definitely done an exceptional job! I am more than satisfied with the the music he produced and he definitely has played an important role in maximizing the quality of the finished TV advert! An outstanding musician.
