Ng Chong Lim (b.1972), who won a scholarship to study at the Royal College of Music in London, earning a Postgraduate Diploma.

Dr Su Lian Tan (b 1964), Malaysian-born, who holds a Ph.D and M.M. from Princeton University, an M.M from the Juilliard School, and a B.A from Bennington College.

Dr Nicholas Ong, Malaysian-born, who holds a Doctorate in Piano Performance (D.M.A.) at Juilliard, in addition to an M.M from Peabody Conservatory & a Diplome Superieur de Concertiste, Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris, France.

All these guys seem to be playing too-serious instruments, anybody went to a top music school playing more “rad” things like the electric guitar or Selmer Saxophones?
