Ms. Angie Tung
Piano, Suzuki Early Childhood Education Teacher
Born in Taipei, Taiwan, Angie began studying music at age four. At age six she started private piano lessons, studying within the Yamaha Music Education System. In 1990 she immigrated to the United States and continued to study piano privately, perform as a solo pianist, and accompanying local choirs.
Angie graduated magna cum laude from Florida State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music and a certificate in Computers in Music. She studied piano with Professor Leonard Mastrogiacomo, voice with Liane Grasso, accompanied for voice students under professors Janice Harsanyi, Larry Gerber, Gale Seaton, and strings students under professor Karen Clarke. As a vocalist, she performed with the Tallahassee Community Chorus under the direction of Dr. Andre Thomas, the Women’s Glee Club under Dr. Judy Bowers, and the University Singers under Dr. Thomas and Dr. Kevin Fenton. The Tallahassee Community Chorus collaborated often with the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra. As a member of this choir, she also performed under conductors David Hoose and Robert Shaw.
From her accompanying work at Pittsfield Community Music School in the Berkshires, Angie was introduced to the Suzuki Method and has since studied with Caroline Fraser, Mary Craig Powell, and Doris Harrel for Suzuki Piano Books 1-4, Suzuki Principals in Action with David Madsen, plus Suzuki Early Childhood Education with Sharon Jones. Complimentary studies include Music Together teacher training under Susan Darrow plus Kodaly Level 1 at DePaul University with Janell Bjorklund, Dr. Julia Shaw and Douglas Beam. Along with her musical studies, she also completed a MA degree in Media Arts at Emerson College.
Angie currently works full time as a Project Manager at MIT’s Education Arcade research lab and teaches private piano lessons out of her home studio in Arlington. When not at her piano or her computer, Angie enjoys singing, dancing, reading, cooking, hula hooping, and being in good spirits. She is also a proud member of a chopper bicycle nerd gang.
