Pianist Sylvia Wang brings twenty-five years of teaching experience to approaches to memorization, a subject which has long fascinated her. She currently serves on the faculty of Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, and has taught master classes at such institutions as the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, the Central Conservatory in Beijing, the Chautauqua Institution in New York and many universities across the United States. Both as clinician, panelist and adjudicator, she has been presented by organizations such as MTNA, National Conference on Piano Pedagogy and Yamaha Music in Malaysia. Her students have won and placed in many competitions, occupy academic positions and are active contributors to the music field in the United States and abroad. Her performances as soloist and chamber musician have taken her across the globe from her native Malaysia to other parts of Asia, Central and South America, Europe, and Australia, and she has recorded for the Newport Classic, CRI and Boston Records labels. Dr. Wang holds the DMA from the Eastman School of Music. In recognition of “distinction in the field,” she was conferred an honorary Associateship of the Royal Academy of Music in London.
