Sonny Chua's music is characterised by its playfulness with styles and musical techniques. Most of his music strives for the beauty of simplicity and brevity, and speaks in an accessible and lively language. As most of his published music was primarily written as educational works for his students, these works were composed with attention to developing performance techniques and awareness of intelligent design.
Chua was born on November 2, 1967 in Penang, Malaysia. He grew up and was educated in Melbourne, Australia. Primarily a self-taught composer, Chua completed a Bachelor of Music degree at University of Melbourne with a focus on piano performance.
Chua's music is presently listed on all Australian examination syllabi and is published by AMPD (formerly Allans Publishing) and Midnight Editions. His piano works are regularly heard in competitions for young musicians and on the radio. He is currently the Director of Music at the Mac.Robertson Girls High School and is a past President of the Association of Music Educators (Victoria).
Chua has spoken on piano teaching and music education at workshops, festivals and conferences. His papers on these topics have been published in conferences and educational publications.
Other than music, Chua's passions include cooking, pinot noir & weeding.
