Musical Director and pianist, Chris Ma has worked in some of the most prominent Musical Theatre productions in London and on the international stage.

Originally from Hong Kong, Chris first trained as a classical pianist at the Royal Academy of Music and Guildhall School of Music and Drama. 

Based in London, Chris now works extensively in Musical Theatre as a Musical Director and pianist across the West End and internationally, both on stage and on screen. 

In addition to performing, Chris is a highly sought-after vocal coach and teacher working both privately and in various institutions across London, from foundational to postgraduate level.

Having a fluent working knowledge in both piano and singing, he enjoys developing and nurturing the next generation of performers and artists. 

Chris feels very fortunate and grateful for his accomplishments thus far and is continually looking to undertake new opportunities and projects.

“The sound balance between the performers and the band, the latter directed by Chris Ma, is excellent, allowing the rapid dialogue and the narrative-driven songs to be understood as they were meant to be.”
