Hello! My name is Kelly and I am currently a graduate from the Conservatorium High School. I am able to provide lessons in both Shanghainese or English.
Accepted into the selective music school in 2014, I have been intensively and academically trained as a pianist and musician through the tertiary professors of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. Starting the piano at the young age of four, I aim to educate students on the technical aspects of playing the piano while infusing an overall passion and enjoyment of music. Through the teaching of essential theory and playing technique, the students are able to develop their musicality while increasing their confidence in piano playing.
I was awarded my AmusA in Piano Performance with distinction in 2015 and my LmusA in Piano Performance in 2018. I was also accepted into the Sydney Conservatorium Open Academy Rising Stars program for piano performance in 2018. Completing the HSC Music 2 Course as an accelerated student, I achieved a final score of 98/100 (Band 6). My performance also earned a place in the ENCORE performance at the Opera House in 2019.
With four years of extensive teaching experience, I have taught beginners starting from the age of four and I have also prepared students for AMEB exams across all grades with pass marks ranging from B+ to A+. Whilst enriching each student with a high level of musical ability and maturity, I am also an understanding teacher (if the student finds that piano is not their highest priority and it is just a hobby, I completely understand and will work with them at that speed and level).
I am located in Ashfield and am available to teach Monday to Sunday in the afternoon. My rate is $60 an hour and I can teach younger students for half an hour or 45 minutes if that is more suitable. There is easy parking.
If you would like me to travel to your home, there will be an extra $5 dollar fee.
