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.
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.
Perfect! Austin is a good pianist with an experience that is unrivaled. My son loves his methods of teaching, and is looking forward to continue piano with him. We highly recommend Austin if you are looking for a musician with professional experience.
He is a detailed teacher. He is very responsible and hardworking.
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 is definitely the best cello teacher you could have! He is motivated, humorous and professional! If you're looking for fun cello lessons, I Highly recommended him as your first choice!!
“Dedicated yet passionate in his field, Austin enjoys sharing the joy of music and working with students to thrive at achieving an exceptional standard and developing one’s mindset at high level of discipline.”
