My name is Thuy Melissa Dao and I am the creator of the Music Alchemy Piano method. This method is the fruit of thirty years of research, during which I spent thousands of hours at the piano learning from Russian, Polish, Jewish and American professors. In addition to piano studies (Cleveland Institute of Music and University of Iowa in the United States). I also studied many other disciplines, including music therapy (University of Iowa, Appalachian State University, Intitut Imago) and coaching (Erickson Coaching International) and Business Administration (Łazarski University/ Asbiro).
In 2008-2010 I taught piano for adults and teenagers at the University of Iowa. From 2012 to 2019, as the director of the MindLight charity project, I developed educational programs that use music as a medium to build social skills for children and adolescents. I am also a precursor of the Positive Discipline educational method in Poland and a co-author of the Ky Luat Yeu Thuong educational method (Compassionate Discipline) in Vietnam. In 2020, together with actress Karolina Brzezińska, we created a performance combining Chopin's music with the poetry of Halina Poświatowska.
