George Zhao

Accordion Tutor & Performer

I am George Zhao, a Canberra-based accordion tutor and performer. I started to play the accordion since my childhood, and received a master's degree in music after studying at the Australian National University.


As an instrumental tutor, I have a lengthy teaching experience both in Australia and abroad. I currently teach music in my home studio in Curtin, and various schools in the Australian Capital Territory.


As a musician and sonic artist, I has performed and exhibited my works many times overseas including Beijing International ElectroAcoustic Music Festival, Shanghai International ElectroAcoustic Music Week, and ElectroAcoustic concerts in De Montfort University (UK) and the University of Oregon (USA); as well as performances across Canberra including the Canberra International Music Festival and National Science Week.
