Piano Lessons for Beginner and Intermediate Students! Professional and lots of fun!

Methodology

Our first lesson I like to understand where the students playing level is at. After I get a good understanding, I will start preparing the proper pieces and exercises for the student to play and learn.
I understand that every student is different and the way each and every student learns is different.
I will make sure the student is not only learning and progressing, but also having lots of fun. After all, music should be enjoyable.

Background

I am a professional musician and graduated from University of Toronto for Bachelors Degree for Cello Performance and Mannes New School of Music for Masters Degree for Cello Performance. I have played piano since I was 5 years old and I have completed and gotten my ARCT degree.

As a pianist I have performed many times and have lots of performance experience, both as soloist and accompanist. I have attended many music festivals such as Kiwanis and won in the top 3 numerous times.

I have lots of experience in teaching and have taught for many years. Have experience teaching students of all ages.

Austin is a natural instinctive musician with an openness to knowing himself and finding his own best approach to making music on the cello. He transmits this openness in his teaching through patience and a calm persistence to see his students progress through to their goals.

Mr. Chao's qualifications of graduating from world-class Mannes School of Music for Cello, along with having an ARCT for flute and piano, makes him not only a fantastic cellist but also a music interpreter. I have personally seen Mr. Chao's unique approach and outstanding interaction with students from school-age to young professionals looking to seeking music as a career. As an music teacher myself, I have made many recommendations to go see Mr. Chao for lessons and have witnessed fantastic progress from my students in a reasonable time span.

Austin's interview

QUESTION 01 | 05
1. When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Austin — I began piano when i was age 4 or 5. Ever since, I fell in love with music.
QUESTION 02 | 05
2. What makes you passionate about your subject?
Austin — Music is such a wonderful art form. There are so many instruments, each with their own unique sound, not to mention countless different genres of music. I love music because of how diverse it is, and how it is an art form that allows the musician to freely express themselves in their own unique way. And of course, music sounds good and is just a lot of fun to play.
QUESTION 03 | 05
3. What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Austin — I love tutoring because I like sharing my knowledge and passion to others. I also really enjoy helping others in any way.
QUESTION 04 | 05
4. Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Austin — Yes. Every music teacher I had are my role models. They helped me grow into the musician I am today. Without them, I wouldn't have the set of skills I have today.
QUESTION 05 | 05
5. What are your keys to success?
Austin — Practice is definately a key to success. It doesn't matter how good a teacher is, if you do not do your own work and apply the knowledge.
Dedication is another. You must be dedicated in learning music. If you give up half way, you won't be able to learn much.
Finally, have fun! Music should be enjoyable!! This is so important. Having fun and enjoying music, will make playing and learning music so much better!
