Hi, My name is Wirya Satya Adenatya. Just 3 days ago i received an email saying that i got a place to study Mperf or Mmus at Royal Northern College of Music, with oboe as my major instrument. My parents wish me to find my own funding, but the tuition fees is very expensive. I am still trying to find bursary, but nothing for music in Indonesia, i will still keep looking. Please help me with this :)
Classical Music generally, and oboe world particularly has been my passion since 2004, but my parents wished me to take another degree and other path of life because its rarities in my country, Indonesia. Since then, I have been struggling to learn about oboe. I bought and learned it by myself until I met one professional oboe player in Indonesia ( Mr. Juhad Ansyari) to be my teacher. I have never missed opportunities to learn more about oboe when there was professional player abroad came to my country. I had master class experiences by Mr. Haryanto Daud, Mr. Edward Wesly (Holland) and Mr. Shigeki Sasaki (Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra). After 1 year of learning, I started to play in Twilite Youth Orchestra. And after 3 years of learning, I started to play oboe and cor anglais professionally in some orchestras in Indonesia such as Jakarta Chamber Orchestra and Twilite Orchestra. During the time, I also did freelance work in oboe playing and photography.
After graduated from Atmajaya University Indonesia in Bsc Psychology, I went to London to study photography, which i recently graduated (December 2013), MA Photography from London College of Communication. During my study, I take regular oboe lesson with Mrs Rebecca Wood, Mr. Gordon Hunt and Mr. Andrey Rubstov. In London, I played the oboe and Cor anglais regularly with UAL orchestra and Kingston Philharmonia. Besides, I have been guest player for Royal Scots Guards, Fulham Symphony Orchestra, Barts University Orchestra, North Finchley Chamber Orchestra, Camden Chamber Orchestra, Camden Symphony Orchestra. One of memorable experience was to play with BBC Symphony Orchestra in a join rehearsal session between Fulham Symphony Orchestra and BBC Symphony Orchestra. Last summer (2013) I took summer course with Mr. Christoph Hartmann in Switzerland, and also Mr. Hansjorg Schellenberger & Mr. Maurice Bourgue in Germany. Studying music has been my dream even before i started my psychology and photography degree. Now i have the opportunity, i would really love to make this happen;)
If i succeed to do the study, i will make sure all of your name will be in my recital program note. I will keep posting video in youtube how do i progress in the course as well!
