Welcome to Our Studio… Enjoy your stay.
We at Little Chopin, believe in the piano’s endless potential for every child. Whether it’s to boost their creativity, help them relieve stress, or charm members of the opposite gender, our pianists are self-motivated, develop excellent musicianship, and know how to have fun!
For over twenty years in Orange County, our team of professional piano teachers have prepared dozens of students every year for district, national, and international competitions. Our students become certified to state-wide standards of piano performance through the Certificate of Merit and National Guild Auditions.
Our very own Concert Hall hosts monthly piano evaluations, holiday themed and genre inspired recitals (like Christmas or Asian Composers), that helps our students to excel on stage and have fun for all their family and friends to see.
United States International Piano Competition Results
If there’s one word that could describe our most RECENT ACHIEVEMENT that would be it.
Three of our Little Chopin teams (including Carolyn Tran and Nicole Ho; Andrew Luu and Charisse Vu; and Celine Tseng and Hong An Hoang) traveled to their competition venue, a Forbes Five-Star and a AAA-Five-Diamond resort, the BOARDMOOR COLORADO SPRINGS HOTEL.
They were finalists in the UNITED STATES INTERNATIONAL DUO PIANO COMPETITION. Weaving through the competition and performing at a spectacular venue is an honor on its own.
But winning is an entirely different feat. And win they did. ALL of our teams placed in their respective categories. Little Chopin is overflowing with absolute pride and admiration for these brilliant and assiduous students. THANK YOU ALL!
The United States International Duo Piano Competition Results:
Category 4: Carolyn Tran and Nicole Ho – 2nd Place
Category 5: Andrew Andrew Luu and Charisse Vu – 3rd Place
Category 6: Celine Tseng and Hong An Hoang – 2nd Place
Presenting… the “DYNAMIC DUO!”
“We started practicing together when Celine joined my piano school and our teacher Molly Nguyen put us together.”
Our two pianists are sizzling through “The Accolade,” the Sunny Hills High school’s newspaper, striking a super cool pose. Half of an entire page is dedicated to chronicling their journey through competitions together, how they met, what they learned… Our favorite quote from Celine Tseng was “Aldric helped me realize that piano is not just hitting the keys…it’s a way of expressing feelings, [bonding] with one another [and going] through happy…or…horrible times.”
They deserve it! Both of these pianists have been with us for more than seven years and we are proud to be with them, every step of the way.
GO ALDRIC AND CELINE!
