STEPHANIE LOOI, piano

Born on the island of Penang, Malaysia, Stephanie Looi was introduced to the piano at the age of seven. As a young child, Stephanie displayed precocious and promising talent on the keyboard. Upon hearing a tune that caught her attention, she would approach the piano and attempt to play the tune by ear. After taking lessons under the Yamaha music school for two years, she started taking piano lessons under Ellen Nora Sinaga. By age eleven, Stephanie became one of the pianists at the Penang Seventh-Day Adventist church. Since performance opportunities in the public domain were few and far between in Penang, playing for church provided Stephanie with the opportunity to share her love for music with others.

In 2010, under the tutelage of Raymond Tan, Stephanie had achieved one of her greatest musical achievements – the highest score in Malaysia for the Piano Licentiate Diploma from the Trinity College School of Music, London. In that same year, she was also among the 26 Malaysians selected to attend the Overseas Malaysian Winter Piano Academy (OMWPA) at the Yehudi Menuhin School in London, England where she studied with renowned pianists such as Bobby Chen, Murray McLachlan, Douglas Finch, Mikhail Kazakevich, and Andrew Ball.

Since coming to La Sierra University, Stephanie has been under the guidance of Dr. Elvin Rodriguez. She is currently a senior and is pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Music (piano emphasis). In addition to the piano, Stephanie also plays the violin, viola, and flute, and has been involved in the university’s orchestra, wind ensemble, string quartet, and flute ensemble. She has performed at various university events, churches, weddings, and other functions. In her free time, Stephanie enjoys improvising on the piano, composing, and collaborating with other musicians. While her goal is to become a doctor, music will remain a huge part of Stephanie’s life, as it is also her desire to be a blessing to others through music. Stephanie will be attending Loma Linda University School of Medicine in August.
