A piano teacher since the 1990’s, I-Wen Tseng taught piano privately in New Jersey, New York City, and hosted annual student recitals at the Steinway Gallery in New Jersey. Her students have achieved high standard results from the ABRSM exams (level 1-8) and NJMTA piano festivals. In 2014, Ms. Tseng relocated to Baltimore, Maryland and is affiliated with the Music Teachers National Association, Maryland State Music Teachers Association, Music Teachers Association of Greater Baltimore, Howard County Music Teachers Association, and Steinway Hall. She is also actively involved in judging competitions and festivals in the state of Maryland.
Ms. Tseng holds a Bachelor and Master degree in Piano Performance from Manhattan School of Music. Her teachers included Dr. Solomon Mikowsky and Dr. Marc Silverman, and she was coached by world renowned chamber musicians such as Ani Kavafian and Isidore Cohen. She has performed as a soloist and collaborative pianist in New York City, New Jersey, Maryland, and was awarded with the Best Bach Performance award at the Washington International Pianist Artists Competition.
A dedicated teacher, Ms. Tseng desires to deepen her knowledge in pedagogy and piano technique, which led her to the Taubman Approach at the Golandsky Institute. Since her discovery of the Taubman Approach, Ms. Tseng has sought to help those who wish to play the piano with greater ease and also, for those who are injured, to recover and be able to enjoy playing piano again. She is currently a candidate of the Golandsky Institute certified teachers’ program, mentored by Mr. Robert Durso.
A diverse artist, Tseng is also an architectural/interior designer, graduating from New York School of Interior Design and New Jersey Institute of Technology.
