Professional violin performer with years teaching experience, and a piano instructor, music theory tutor

Methodology

According to different level of the students, I will use various methods to teach. I am very careful with students’ posture in the beginning because I don’t want them to get I hired in the future by playing the violin or piano.
Also, I would love my students to note their practice time, and send me some practice video, so I am able to keep track of them! I will also send some videos to the parents to let them know that your kids are doing well!

In the other hand, I like to make students to think about what the problem is first, and try their best to solve the problem by themselves instead of telling them everything.

Super Prof

Background

Hello,
My name is Chia-Shan Hsu! I earned my Doctor of Musical Arts degree in violin performance, with a minor in collaborative piano at Louisiana State University in May 2020, and I received my Master of Music in violin performance at Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University in 2016.

As a solo violinist, I have learned diverse programs during the time when I was at school and summer festivals. In the last four years, I had at least one solo recital per year. I also had lots of opportunities to play in the masterclasses at school and summer festivals. One of my favorite musical types is chamber music that I always played chamber music with my friends, and we performed for each other's recitals, so we accumulated various repertoire. Plus, it was fortunate for me to have opportunities to play with LSU faculty at the concerts. Besides, I was chosen to perform chamber music with Gil Shahan and his wife Adele Anthony and collaborated with numerous renowned musicians in the Aspen Music Festival.
As an orchestra player, I am playing in the Civic Orchestra of Chicago now. In the past few years, I was assigned to be the concertmaster frequently in the LSU Symphony Orchestra, and LSU Opera Orchestra. Moreover, I participated in a couple of orchestral excerpts masterclasses in the ASF. And my last project in DMA is a video of introducing and demonstrating some standard orchestra excerpts repertoire. My professional work was not limited to violin performance. I have performed as a collaborative pianist in the concerts and helped my studio mates play in the studio class or masterclass when they were not able to find a pianist.

During my doctorate study, I have served as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at LSU which allowed me to accumulate experience in teaching the violin section in the Kid’s Orchestra and plan on organizing the recital at the end of each semester. In 2019, I invited LSU professors to Taiwan, where they had two concerts and four masterclasses. We shared the school's information with Taiwan’s students and provided them more ideas about studying abroad.

Thank you for taking the time to review my application. Please feel free to contact me should you require any additional information.

I've been knowing Chia-Shan for few years and we've performed in different venues. We met in Aspen Music Festival and we performed for many internationally renowned musicians. She is not only a great musician but also a super kind and nice person. Anyone would enjoy working with her! She's been teaching for many years and knows how to work with different age/level of students.

Chia-Shan has many experiences not only related to different types of performances (solo, chamber music, orchestral music etc), but also related to the teaching to different levels of students. she loves to share her insight of basic skills, practice tips, and artistic interpretations to her students. Most importantly, she aspires to help her students achieve their goals in learning and overcome any difficulties with her students in the process.
