Singaporeans chasing big dreams on global stage
27 Oct 2019
Article featured four Singaporeans who are making their mark on the arts and entertainment scene overseas. One individual is SP’s Diploma in Music & Audio Technology student Alex Hooi who shared his dreams and aspirations. As a boy, Alex Hooi started out slinging toy guitars on music-based video game Guitar Hero, but now he is shredding on the real thing on stage in Singapore, Britain, Australia and China. Earlier this month, Alex performed at The West Australian Guitar Festival together with musician and Timbre Group co-founder Danny Loong. Last year, he travelled to London to compete against other junior guitarists from around the world and ended up as runner-up in the Young Guitarist of the Year 2018 contest. Another Singaporean who was featured in the article is TP’s Diploma in Interactive Media Design graduate Jason Ho, who shared his work experience as an animator in the US film industry.
