Having started teaching neighbors and friends at age 13, Miss Yvonne has had more than a decade of teaching experience, whether in a private studio, classroom, or master class setting. As a teaching artist with Juilliard ArtReach, she taught summer classes at Snow College (Ephraim, UT) and presented master classes for students at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) and Houston School of Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA). She has been on the chamber music faculty of AFA Texas, teaching class piano, chamber music, and music theory in their Summer Music Festival (2016, 2017, 2018). At Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, she taught private lessons to organ and composition students, group piano classes for non-keyboard majors, and undergraduate music fundamental classes for non-musicians.
She is currently on faculty as Piano Teacher at St. John’s School where she teaches private K-12 piano instruction. See the school’s feature on her in their newspaper, The Review: “Class Act: Piano Teacher Yvonne Chen” (November 2017).
