About Xiao

Born and raised in Beijing, Xiao is a pianist and new media composer. Xiao began studying piano at the age of 4, science at the age of 7, and media art at the age of 18, but not until the age of 20 did she write her first song and find her talents in music. She holds the certificate of 9th Grade (the highest grade) of piano performance in China Conservatory, 8th Grade in ABRSM Music Theory and 3th Grade(the highest grade) in Solfege in Central Conservatory in China.

Her first tutoring job is to coach a student in primary school to pass the Solfege Test in China when she was 12. She tutored her sister piano for a couple of classes when she was in high school. She also has a private college piano student when she was in her undergrad school. She enjoys sharing knowledge in a nice and happy environment.

Xiao's later-on focus is on composition and film/game scoring. She owns master degree in Music Theory and Composition in Carnegie Mellon University and Certificate in Film Scoring in University of Southern California. If you are interested in more information or want a career in music while practising piano, don't hesitate to have a consult lesson with her.
