Ying Wang

“I strive to bring concepts to life in creative ways and to share my enthusiasm for the subject matter with my students.”

A graduate of UW-Madison in Piano Performance and Psychology, and currently a Teaching Assistance at UW

After graduating from the UW Madison with degrees in Piano Performance and Psychology with an emphasis in child development, Ying completed a Master’s Degree at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, MD. He is now back in Madison pursuing a DMA in Piano Performance and Pedagogy.

Ying believes that most learning comes through the students themselves and it is his goal to guide students onto a path of lifelong musical learning. He is deeply interested in how children’s neuropsychological development and music, especially piano, can directly affect one’s intellectual and multisensory development. Currently, he is working with UW’s Speech Processing Inquiry using Neuroscience and Technologies (SPRINT) – one of the nation’s leading research programs in human multisensory integration.

An outgoing and experienced instructor, Ying previously maintained a private piano studio in Baltimore where he taught students of many ages.  In addition to music, he enjoys hiking, reading comics, and is an avid fan of superhero films and Broadway musicals.
