I'm a professional and motivated instructor who graduated from UT Austin and would love to share music with whoever wants to learn. It has been 16 years for playing cello and orchestra whether in school and outside of school, and also for teaching experience. I have been working with several Maestros, including Bion Tsang, Rapheal Bell, Peter Seidenberg, Peter Opie, and Jonathan Spitz, and I had an opportunity to perform in the Taiwan National Concert Hall with Haik Kazazyan, who was the third-place of International Tchaikovsky Violin Competition. I have won third place in the Taipei City Competition of Music among many outstanding competitors in 2015. On the other hand, I strived for the chance of participating in many performances. In 2014, I performed Edward Elgar's Cello Concerto in E minor, Op. 85 with the local orchestra in Hualien. In 2017, I played Prokofiev’s Sinfonia-Concertante, Op.125 at my recital at Soochow University, which was praised by my teachers and the audience. I have finished my second personal recital at Butler School of music in UT Austin in 2021 May.

Very good experience! She really made me feel comfortable being an adult student. I think I am going really enjoy learning piano.So looking forward to our next lesson.
My elementary aged girls are taking beginner piano lessons with Yi-Chien and I have been so impressed with their progress. They are excited to go to lessons and practice what they have learned when they get home. Yi-Chien is very kind and patient and a great teacher too!
Our cello teacher Yi-Chien provides constant help, clear directions and practical tips for improving technique. My son began doing Cello-homework on his own and his playing has improved. We are enjoying the Cello training sessions with Olivia Yi-Chien. Thank you!
