Christopher Wong is an accomplished performer and teacher, contributing greatly to Melbourne's music scene. Having taught for 5 years in Piano, Music Theory and Musicianship, his creed is to combat echo chambers. This is by employing various creative methods of teaching and allowing them to make their own musical decisions. This enables him to adapt with the unique qualities each student has with their cognitive and learning development.
Christopher’s array of accomplishments includes first prizes from numerous eisteddfods and a Special Distinction Award from The Talent on 3MBS in 2017. He was awarded a Bachelor of Music with First Class Honours from the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music in 2017 and during this time received many scholarships, including the Grace Funston Scholarship, Katharine Ellis Memorial Fund and the Dudley William Gardiner Memorial Scholarship. His performing career sees his previous collaboration with numerous acclaimed teachers including Hui-Ying-Liu Tawaststjerna and Teppo Koivisto at the Sibelius Academy during his exchange studies and in masterclasses including Stephen Hough, Nicolas Hodges, Victor Rosenbaum and Paul Lewis. Recently, Christopher made his solo debut with the University of Melbourne Symphony Orchestra performing Britten’s Piano Concerto under the baton of Richard Davis.
Chris is very happy to teach in a wide variety of styles, from classical to contemporary and welcomes students of all ages and learning capabilities.
