「圓夢先鋒」樂隊簡介

Dream Achievers Band is a music ensemble made up of talented young musicians with Autism who have participated in Friends of Children with Special Needs (FCSN) music program. Founded in October 2011, Dream Achievers members are Lawrence Wang, saxophonist/flutist, drummer and vocalist, Alice Jen, pianist, and Gregory Hebert, guitarist and vocalist. Their repertoire includes more than 300 songs that range from classical music to jazz/hip hop, Latin, kid-songs, and traditional cultural music. Due to Autism, each one of them has an inspirational story of hope and amazing courage behind their music.

Lawrence Wang, diagnosed with Autism at age 3, has always been fearful of loud sounds and high pitched noises. Eight years ago, Lawrence attended his first music lesson and was discovered to have savant-like musical talent. Working through the painful noises, he mastered the flute recorder, three types of saxophones, vocals, and drums. Lawrence has received recognitions from the media and the NBA Champion Golden State Warriors. He has also performed internationally and is the winner of Special Needs Talent Showcase 2016.

Alice Jen, started her musical journey when she was 5 years old. After seeing someone playing piano on TV, she began playing by ear before she spoke her first word. She started formal music lessons at age 7 and learned to read notes. Alice has won the first place in numerous competitions, including Western Regional California State Talent and Performing Arts Competition, US Open Music Competition, Special Needs Talent Showcase, and the Elite International Music Competition 2018 in Carnegie Hall, New York.

Gregory Hebert, like Lawrence, was also sensitive to loud sounds as a child. It was only a mere six years ago that he taught himself to play the guitar. He started out by playing along to songs on his videos, eventually branching out to imitating guitarists on YouTube. Gregory’s musical talent has blossomed, as he has developed perfect pitch and learns the band songs by ear. He has wonderful humor and is very popular with the audience during performances.

The Dream Achievers Band is one of the winners of 2015 Special Needs Got Talent. They have been the headliner for countless events and celebrations, including concerts in Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Washington DC, California State Capitol, universities, and public and private parties.

These young musicians’ goal is to be the sign of hope for parents, musical ambassadors and shining examples for the community at large to see that individuals with “disabilities” can have many special “abilities” through their gift of music.
