ADELINE NG

Adeline began piano at age 6 and started teaching at 15. Growing up in a family of classically trained musicians, her fondest memories were of her father singing excerpts from Puccini’s operas and attending concerts conducted by her uncle. Today, she hopes to transmit those same feelings of joy and elation to her students, creating a platform for them to freely express who they are as individuals. In her spare time, you can probably find her being bitten by mosquitoes whilst stargazing.

JULIE OGUEY

Julie is a bubbly multi-instrumentalist and singer, who has always thrived in creative environments. After studying the violin until she was 13, she took to the piano with a longing to understand the mechanics of harmony, and with the help of her teacher she began writing songs.

She loves jewellery-making, painting, dancing, and jamming with her hip muso friends. She is at her happiest when swimming in the ocean or patting a dog.

SOOWON SEO

Soowon grew up constantly surrounded by music, under the influence of her grandfather who loved classical music and her aunt who was a pianist. Soowon mostly performs classical music, but loves to listen to jazz. Her favorite jazz musician is Stan Getz. Soowon’s mother had always thought of her as a bouncing rugby ball because no one knew what she was going to do next and she always thought differently to others!

ALEX DI DIO

Alex is a dedicated musician who has studied classical piano for the last 18 years, during school and at the University of Sydney. When he’s not snapping the strings of his grandmother’s baby grand playing Rachmaninoff far too loudly, he can be found at a mates place jamming to some Bruce Springsteen, or making a mess in the kitchen trying to recreate his Nonna’s Spaghetti Bolognese.
