Sue Yang is the founder of FMMA, and is herself a musician, music educator, curriculum developer, and a parent. After 20 years of teaching, she has established a creative and unique bilingual music program that utilizes art, sensory play and eurhythmics to immerse children in the fundamental of music without resorting to the formal rigidity of the traditional music lesson.
Before FMMA was founded, she was the bilingual music teacher and curriculum developer at International school of the Peninsula (Palo Alto), where she taught students ranging from nursery school toddlers fifth grade students. She has also led children’s choir, keyboard, and violin classes at the Redwood city school district after school program, and has been teaching private music lessons at her home based studio and at other music schools around the Bay Area.
Prior to her relocation to the US, she gained her unique teaching style and extensive leadership experience from the Taiwan national branch of the the YAMAHA music education system where she served as the master vocal teacher (coaching teachers from all local branches), music course recording artist, as well as national branch performer and instructor.
Her musical talent was shown from early childhood. She had her first violin performance at the Tokyo Dome at the age of 9. She was also a signed Recording Artist with Rock Records of Taiwan. In 1997, she had the privilege of being chosen as the Featured Performer at Gianni Versace's 1997 line debut gala in Sydney & Brisbane, Australia. She won First Place at The Treasury Casino Voice Competition, an event jointly planned by the Australian Central Government - all while getting her bachelor of music degree in Australia.
She had also been chosen as the featured performer at numerous business world conference for associations such as the Rotary Club, the Lions, and the Wolrd Taiwanese American Chamber of Commerce.
In her spare time, she produces live events and private concerts for corporate clients. She has produced events and concerts for Acer Inc. and Asus Inc. for their respective year-end celebrations.
