Imma Setiadi was born in Indonesia where a fascination for the piano was nurtured by teachers recognising her natural potential. Her progress at the Yamaha and Quatro Music Schools, led to an undergraduate scholarship to study at Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music in Singapore with Albert Tiu.
After gaining an RCM Study Award and Indonesian Scholarship to study in London at the Royal College of Music, she earned a Master of Music (distinction) and a Doctoral (DMus) degree under Nigel Clayton and Amanda Glauert. Her performance-research project, exploring her interest in cross-arts practice and concert experience as a pianist, was featured at the RCM Great Exhibitionist Series, Trinity Laban Music and Arts Festival, Deal Festival, RNCM HARP Conference and the GSMD Reflective Conservatoire Conference.
Whilst in the UK, she has performed as soloist and chamber musician at the Bridgewater Hall, Purcell Room, Steinway Hall, St. John’s Smith Square, Turner Contemporary, Holywell Music Room, National Gallery, Blackheath Halls and Elgar Room at the Royal Albert Hall. She was further encouraged by prizes at the Beethoven Piano Society of Europe Concerto Competition, RCM Beethoven Kendall Taylor Prize and Piano Chamber Music Competition, and the Eastbourne Young Soloist Competition. She also accompanied masterclasses by James Galway, Ole Kristian-Dahl, Raphael Wallfisch, Maximiliano Martin, Fiona Bonds and Jacques Tys.
Imma has been selected as a ‘young artist’ for the Leeds Lieder Festival, and twice for the Park Lane Group and Manchester Mid-Day Concerts Society; she was a Junior Fellow in Piano Accompaniment at both the RCM and Trinity Laban Conservatoire, and became a London Philharmonic Orchestra Foyle Future Firsts and is a Leverhulme/Pro Corda Fellow in Chamber Music. She currently works as aural skills teacher and accompanist at the RCM, and teaches in the Piano Departments of the Loughborough Schools Foundation and Whitgift School Croydon.
Junior Trinity is a Saturday Music Department for 3-19 year olds. We were the first Junior Department of a UK Conservatoire to open its doors to schoolchildren on Saturdays in 1906. Since then thousands of young people have benefited from the opportunities to make music as individuals and in a wide variety of small and large ensembles. From Trinity Teenies aged 3-5 right through to university and conservatoire entrance, it is our aim to encourage a lifelong interest in music and to give our students the opportunities to develop to their maximum potential.Find Out More
