Founder and Manager
Yichao graduated from Sydney Conservatorium of music with a Bachelor of Music Education. She is devoted to teaching music in a way that is more practical and enjoyable for students, with the goal of enabling them to play piano for their entire life, with special emphasis on adults who learn piano for fun. This is how Master Piano Institute has been founded: as the only one piano school in Sydney where adults make up the majority of students.
Yichao understands why adults want to learn piano or pick up the old skill, so she combines traditional classical method （for a solid foundation）, and at the same time teaches chords and popular music as practical life-skill, which is also the best way to learn music theory. She collects great pieces for all levels of students from different books to make sure that the repertoire we introduce to students encompass a variety of genres, are good arrangements and sound mature, but are simple to learn. She also has composed several pieces for the purpose of teaching improvisation, which have been successfully performed by many students.
She helps students improvise, compose and transcribe their recording memos and, as a result, her students play classical music expressively, but also have a broad interest in other styles of music, as well as composing and accompanying singers.
