Hi, I'm Parvati and recently moved to Austin!
I received my BM in piano performance from the Eastman School of Music, and my MM from the San Francisco Conservatory. I have taught at the College of Music, Mahidol University in Thailand for 4 years, and at Idyllwild Arts in southern California for 4 years as well!
I have performed in the United States, Thailand, Japan, and Germany including at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the Kobe Asahi Hall in Japan, Goethe-Institut Thailand, and the Kultur Forum in Fürth, Germany. I was broadcast on Hawaii Public Radio with baritone Nicholas Provenzale in 2013. Collaborative performances for international competitions, festivals and conferences include the Thailand International Composition Festival, the Asian Double Reed Association, the Thailand Brass and Percussion Conference, and the Osaka International Competition.
I have been invited to festivals including the Orford Music Academy (2016, 2015) the Atlantic Music Festival (2015), Aspen Music Festival and School (2009), the Beijing International Music Festival and Academy (2008), and the Eastern Music Festival (2007, 2003). I have served as an Ambassador for the Orford Academy in 2016 and 2017.
I have been invited to give masterclasses and performances at Eastern Illinois University, Eastern New Mexico University, New Mexico State University, the Santa Fe School of the Arts, and the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I have also been a jury member for the preliminary rounds of the Osaka International Competition and the Thailand International Piano Competition.
I love teaching and helping students achieve their goals. I believe in a holistic approach to learning and I believe that music is the greatest investment you can give yourself or your child! Sharing the world of music with others is an honor! More than anything, I want my students to love music and to love the piano, which has been my lifelong companion. Whether you are just wanting to learn piano for fun, or whether you are preparing for a performance, audition, or competition, I can help you achieve your goals!
I taught piano, music theory, chamber music, collaborative piano, and group class piano at Idyllwild Arts, a private boarding arts high school in California!
I taught at Mahidol University in Thailand where I taught piano to precollege, undergraduate and graduate piano majors. I also taught at Mahidol's community school on Saturdays where I taught a range of levels.

Hi, this is Xinni Liu. I have been a student and advisee of Parvati for four years. I have learned a list of great repertoire from her. She is not only an enthusiastic, sincere and caring teacher but more like a close friend of mine. During the lesson, she focuses primarily on feeling and tone, which I found very helpful to me. Also, she attaches importance to let us explore what is unique about our own playing. She makes sure we understand her points and reflects back consistently throughout the lesson, too. I always get inspired and moved by her performance as well, because she is an outstanding performer. I am so happy that I got to meet her and study with her. I am very thankful to be her student.+ Read More
