To honour and celebrate all women on “International Women’s Day” 8/3/2016, AsiaLIFE Magazine March issue featured Ms. Bui Trieu Yen – SMPAA’s Director of Music, and her inspiring story and passion for music education. Believing in the importance and the lifelong impact of musical values, skills and attitudes to the holistic development of children, her top concern today is bringing music education to more Vietnamese children.

In addition, the interview also focused on how music can be used to promote gender equality in Vietnam. Ms. Trieu Yen shared, “What we want to do here at SMPAA is not just build artists, but educate children through music so they can build their fundamental values. Through music education, we want to inspire and empower our students, especially female students, to dream bigger.” To read the interview in full, please visit
