Hong Xiang has a degree in music from the University of Queensland, a Diploma in music from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts and an LTCL diploma.
Hong Xiang has been teaching piano for 6 years. He coaches children (from age 6) and adults. Most of the students that he has prepared for graded exams (ABRSM grades 1-8 or trinity diplomas) achieve results of merit and distinction. He also encourages and prepares students to participate in performances and competitions. Hong Xiang also offers lessons for adults.
With regards to his performance experience, Hong Xiang has performed with ensembles and played solo recitals. At 16, he performed Beethoven's 3rd piano concerto with the Braddell Heights Symphony Orchestra. In the inaugural Singapore Piano Concerto Festival, he performed Mozart’s piano concerto no.23 in A-major with the ADDO arts company. More recent performances are listed here:

Under Hong Xiang's tutelage, I scored a distinction for my ATCL diploma. I like that he often engages in demonstrating while teaching because this makes it easier to understand the music directly. This also helps me to form my own interpretations as we can discuss how and why certain musical parts should be put together in a certain way. Hong Xiang also has a very comfortable yet engaging style of communication so I don't feel shy when it comes to asking questions. He also isn't restrictive when it comes to repertoire, and is happy to listen to and work with me on non-classical pieces such as game/anime music. We get along great and I highly recommend him as a piano teacher.
