Viola, Violin, Piano
A native of Taiwan, Hsuan began her music study with piano at the early age of 4. She was then accepted into a sponsored musical program at age 10, where she studied both piano and viola. Hsuan later added violin to her repertoire as a secondary major while she was obtaining her master’s degree.
An avid chamber musician, Hsuan has toured in the U.S., Czech Republic, Japan, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. During these travels, she’s been fortunate to have collaborated with renowned artists such as Andres Cardenas, Bela Horvath, Megumi Kasakawa, Ryan Meehan (Calidore String Quartet,) and Joann Whang (Argus String Quartet.) As a recipient of Earl V. Moore Scholarship, Lloyd H. and Virginia L. Arnold Music Scholarship, and Music Merit Graduate Scholarship, Hsuan holds a post master’s degree from University of Michigan and is now a doctoral candidate at Stony Brook University, studying with the world-renowned Emerson String Quartet.
Today, Hsuan is an experienced instructor of violin, viola, piano, and chamber music. Before moving to Boston, she served as Stony Brook University undergraduate chamber music coach and Stony Brook Symphony Orchestra teaching assistant. She also has assisted students with orchestra auditions, music festivals, scholarships, music theory tests, and NYSSMA. Hsuan is very proud to say that her students once received the highest score in NYSSMA and have been admitted into orchestra programs and music camps with scholarships, such as the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp and the Pioneer High School orchestra.
Hsuan is fluent in Mandarin and English and can also speak a little bit of Japanese. In her spare time, Hsuan enjoys hiking, reading, and watching movies.
