Shaun Lee-Chen

Started at UWA: 2002

Co-ordinator of Violin Studies and Artist in Residence at the UWA Conservatorium of Music

Studying Mozart and historical music is so important because students can start to apply research from historical texts to their playing. There is no greater introduction to historical performance than this. UWA has produced many of the world's foremost exponents of period instruments.Shaun Lee-Chen
