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. Taking to the keys from the start, it quickly became his passion.

After moving to Australia in 2008, he joined a musical high school, where 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.

Piano, however, remained his Forté. He continued playing piano with enthusiasm throughout numerous concerts and competitions in Brisbane. At High School, he gained his first two associate diplomas in piano performance from the A.M.E.B. At this time, he started to privately teach piano students ranging from 4 - 40 years in age. 

Over the next couple of years, he was rewarded to see excellent results from his students in AMEB exams and other musical events. He gained experience in teaching a variety of students not only in the piano, but also the guitar. Having decided that teaching music to students became his passion, he set up Ethereal Piano School in order to welcome more students.

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