Dr. Myra Yeung is an adjudicator and guest clinician in Canada and the USA.

She served on the Suzuki Association of Ontario Board of Directors from 2018 to 2021. She is a Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) Certified Teacher as an Advanced specialist.

Dr. Yeung is a proponent of lifelong learning and enjoys working alongside colleagues to offer enriching programs for students, parents, and teachers. Some examples include directing and co-chairing Suzuki workshops, coordinating children’s summer camps in Whiteshell Provincial Park (Manitoba), and directing a mentoring program for teen girls in inner-city Winnipeg.

In 2018, she presented a pedagogical project at the 45th International Viola Congress in the Netherlands.

For a few years after completing her undergraduate computer science studies, Myra worked in IT full-time and taught evening violin lessons and group classes. While she continues to enjoy working on computer projects, Myra’s passion for teaching became quite evident during that time and she went on to pursue further studies in music pedagogy and performance. She credits her music teachers for instilling in her a wholehearted joy of teaching with excellence.

Recent achievements by students in Dr. Yeung’s studio include Concertmaster chairs, 1st Place awards, and scholarship awards. She herself is the winner of many competitions and awards for viola, piano, and chamber music.

Myra grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba, learning Suzuki viola from Joanne Martin and RCM piano from Lydia Wiebe.

She studied Suzuki teacher training with Joanne Bath, Karen-Michele Kimmett, April Losey, and Kathleen Spring.

Dr. Yeung is currently on faculty at Etobicoke Suzuki Music (ESM) in Toronto, Ontario, where she teaches a full studio. Founded in 1982, ESM is recognized as one of the first Suzuki programs in Canada.
