« Perfect! Gosh, Cecilia clicked right in on my learning path and I am progressing with her faster than I could have imagined. Very skilled at the piano, and at getting the concepts across. Not a task master or just a cheerleader, great back and forth with cycles of playing and feedback that is super helpful and exciting as I am progressing faster than I could have hoped and enjoying it. I highly recommend Cecilia! »

Concert pianist with 10 years of teaching experience. Eastman and Northwestern graduate.

Methodology

My teaching method is different for every student to cater to their special needs. I strongly believe in musicality and feeling the musical, and then technique is built based upon that. I love working to students from all backgrounds and ages and believe that they all deserve to play the piano!

Cecilia Chow was born in Hong Kong and began her piano studies at the age of three. Over the years, she has won numerous awards from the Hong Kong Schools Music Festival, Internationaler Deutchler Klavier, Toyama Piano Competition, Steinway and Sons Youth Piano Competition, Yamaha Piano Competition and Asia Open Competition.
