Sarah Chen, a student of Dr Mark McGee, is a 15 year old studying Year 12 at Tintern Grammar School who is both passionate about and talented at playing classical music for both piano and violin. As testament to this, Sarah has passed AMEB AMus for both violin and piano, while also having passed LMus for piano at age 12.
