Khin-Wee (PhD, MEd, BCM, ATCL, LTCL, LGSM) coordinates the musical activities of St Peter’s Youth Orchestra (SPYO), which was set up to provide young (and not-so-young) musicians of the Upper Riccarton/Yaldhurst neighbourhoods of Christchurch and beyond the opportunity to play in an ensemble in a safe and wholesome environment. He earned his Bachelor of Church Music degree from Singapore Bible College, where he studied composition, voice, keyboard and choral conducting. He holds a Master degree in education from Nanyang Technological University and has just completed his PhD at the University of Canterbury. He also conducts private music lessons at the St Peter’s Anglican Church. SPYO membership, however, is a free community service.
