How is my approach unique to YOU?

*I believe great music making starts with great listening. I will listen to you and I will challenge you to hear more than you thought possible.

*Every student has an individual learning style, and I love helping you figure out what works best for YOU. 

*As a lifelong learner myself, I devote a minimum of an hour a day to research and develop MORE teaching ideas for you.

*Besides a lifetime of academic education including Juilliard, Yale, specialty studies, communications studies, and 14 years of teaching at the University of Colorado at Boulder, I am equally comfortable engaging in other modalities of experience including polyvagal nerve theory, lifestyle and practice habits, my Musical Breathwork, and emotional intelligence to make sense of the practicing process.

Since her stage debut at age 4, pianist Hsing-ay Hsu (“Sing-I Shoo”) has been performing at such venues as Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center NYC, and in Europe & Asia. Her thoughtful interpretations and “explosions of energy” (NY Times) have won her the Juilliard William Petschek Debut Award, William Kapell International Competition, Ima Hogg National First-Prize, Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowship, Gilmore Young Artist Award, and the US Presidential Scholar of the Arts Award from President Clinton. She was Artistic Director for Pendulum New Music at the University of Colorado in Boulder for fourteen years. Ms. Hsu has also been visiting piano faculty at several universities, and lectures for various organizations, including a recent MTNA national convention. With a studio of prize-winning students, she also gives masterclasses, adjudicates, and hosts the monthly Conscious ListeningTM Café webinars to reach new audiences and to connect mind, body, and heart through music. She also studied dance and theater improv to explore her teaching of the physicality and emotions of piano playing. Born in Beijing, Ms. Hsu trained at Juilliard, Yale University, Aspen, Ravinia, Aldeburgh, and Tanglewood. A Steinway Artist, she is married to composer Daniel Kellogg who is the new president of Young Concert Artists (NYC), and they have one daughter.
