Lee Wai Teng is a graduate from Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, National University of Singapore. She studied with Singapore Symphony Orchestra’s Principal Clarinetist, Ma Yue, and Principal Bass Clarinet, Tang Xiao Ping. Wai Teng has also received a diploma from the Weiner Musikseminar in Vienna, Austria, where she studied with Kurt Schmid. In 2015, she was featured as a soloist with the Philharmonic Youth Winds at Esplanade, Singapore.
Wai Teng leads an independent clarinet ensemble, CLARQuinet, which won 1st prize (open division) at the biennial Singapore Clarinet Festival in 2015 and 2017. Wai Teng, along with her ensemble, has been selected as Backun Young Artists. She currently plays on a Model F Cocobolo Clarinet. Wai Teng is also a BG young artist since 2015.
On top of her performing pursuits, Wai Teng is passionate about accessibility to quality music education. Her most recent project, a music camp in Lahore, Pakistan, was supported by Starfish Pakistan, a non-profit that helps poor and marginalized children to get an education. The camp reached over 800 students and teachers. Through the internet, Wai Teng continues to provide guidance to teachers on incorporating music into their curriculum.
Wai Teng also holds a strong interest in the biological and cognitive aspects of musical behaviour. She plans to pursue her intellectual inclinations in an interdisciplinary domain that combines both her love for music making and her curiosity of the musical brain.
