NSW: the perfect place to chase your musical passion

Arum is a Chinese student completing a Bachelor of Music at the University of Sydney.

About Arum

Learning violin from a young age in China, Arum was drawn to the exceptional music courses in Sydney. She was also encouraged by her family to study in NSW for the multicultural, supportive study environment.

One of Arum’s favourite experiences was sitting with classmates outside the Sydney Opera House to watch fireworks after playing an orchestra from class. Arum hopes to one day become an orchestra performer or a violin teacher in Sydney.
