Matt Bagasao: Classical Piano

Pianist Matthew Bagasao has been providing private piano lessons for many years. Mr. Bagasao is an active member of the Music Teacher's Association of California where his students take part in the Certificate of Merit program. His teaching emphasizes a strong foundation in classical music which includes basic technique and fundamentals, sight reading, and theory. From this, students are able to easily learn and play different styles of music. His style of teaching is based on each student's personality and interests both in and outside of music. To simplify and amplify the understanding and enjoyment of music is the main goal.

With his first orchestral concerto debut at the age of nine, pianist Matthew Bagasao has since continued to thrill his audiences with his "performances of depth and passion." He has played in numerous concerts and recitals on both coasts of the United States, as well as in Canada and Europe. After receiving a fellowship from the La Gesse Foundation, he performed both solo and chamber music recitals in the La Gesse Music Festivals in Toulouse, France, and in Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall. He was also involved in the First Annual Philippine-American Jazz Festival in Hollywood.

Mr. Bagasao has performed in masterclasses for renowned artists and pedagogues such as John Perry, Luiz de Moura Castro, Leon Fleisher, Leif Ove Andsnes, Jerome Lowenthal, Menahem Pressler and Ann Schein. He also participated in various music festivals including the Kneisel Hall Chamber Music Festival (Blue Hill, Maine), ARIA International Music Academy (London, Ontario), and the TCU-Cliburn Piano Institute (Ft. Worth, Texas).

After receiving his Bachelor and Master of Music Degrees from the Peabody Conservatory of Music of the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland while studying with Marian Hahn, he studied with Marc Durand at the Glenn Gould School of The Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, Ontario where he received his Artist Diploma. While studying at the Glenn Gould School, Mr. Bagasao played in solo, duo-piano, and chamber music performances. He performed in Mozart Unlaced, the annual Royal Conservatory of Music fundraising event in the historical Casa Loma, the Straford Music Festival Soirees in Stratford, Ontario, and was a finalist in the Mooredale Concerto Competition which took place in Walter Hall of The University of Toronto. In addition to these, he helped arrange and recorded music tracks for educational learning, and accompanied the Royal Conservatory Jazz Choir for two years.
