The Founder / Lead Teacher


Ashwin Mavani 

Since 2013

Ethereal Piano School was founded in 2013 by Ashwin Mavani (L.mus.A, A.mus.A, dip A.A.C.M).

Ashwin started learning the piano at the age of 5. Having a keen ear and sense for music, his parents pursued piano lessons for him in the town of Hastings, New Zealand, with a variety of piano teachers. 

It was a struggle, because preferred play by ear over having to read music and practice scales. Gradually, however he began to enjoy learning how to read music in order to explore the different styles of piano composition. With his in view, he advanced quickly through A.M.E.B grades. 

After moving to Australia in 2008, he joined a very musical high school. Here, he was given the opportunity to learn many other instruments: the double bass, French horn, guitar, drum kit and ukulele. He played the double bass and French horn in the symphony orchestra and concert band of the high school, competing in musical competitions around Brisbane. He joined the Queensland Korean Orchestra (Q.K.O) for French horn in 2012.

Having gained a passion for all music during this time, he continued with piano, playing at various concerts around Brisbane. In High School, he gained his first two associate diplomas in piano performance from the A.M.E.B. At this time, he started to teach his first few piano students. The students' age ranged from 4 to 40 years old.

Over the next couple of years, taking interest in his students' progress, he gained much experience in teaching a variety of students not only in the piano, but also the guitar. Having decided that teaching music became his passion, he set up Ethereal Piano School in order to welcome more students.

in 2014 he gained his Licentiate (L.mus.A) From the A.M.E.B.
