When I was in Malaysian, I do not have any professional musician friends. I have friends who played the piano and that was it. However, when I came here to Melbourne, I had the pleasure to meet many professional musicians.
They are all new migrants like us too. There is a music teacher who teaches piano and violin for over 20 years as well as a composer whom has done loads of great work. They said, the world gets smaller when you migrate!
The only thing is, I am not sure what kinds of instruments they uses so maybe you can visit website here. I know the professionals and the amateurs uses different stuff!
