Meet Ory Shihor
I’m Ory Shihor, the creator of Ace My Audition, a system designed to provide everything young gifted pianists need in order to succeed in their college piano auditions and get accepted to the school of their dreams. Using my expertise as dean, conservatory teacher, speaker, adjudicator and performer, students I have taught or mentored have successfully entered many of the top music schools in the US — and now I am excited about sharing my knowledge and winning tips with you.

“Three years of study with Mr.Shihor has totally changed my understanding and increase my love of music dramatically.

I am so thankful for Mr. Shihor.” read more >>
“As a pedagogue, Mr. Shihor maintained the same learning-conducive principles with utmost care and diligence. Every lesson with Mr. Shihor was an extraordinary learning experience in every possible way. I can now say with confidence that I have been accepted into the schools and studios of my dreams, and I would not have been able to do so without Mr. Shihor’s tireless guidance, mentorship and belief in me as a student. I am eternally grateful to him for all that he has helped me with.” read more >>
