LEAD MUSIC TEACHER
Hello I am Stephanie Xiao and I am so pleased to be teaching here at Musical Arts Schoolhouse. I grew up in China and fell in love with music and playing the piano!
I received my Bachelors of Arts Degree in piano performance from the Tianjin Conservatory of Music in China. I then moved to Arlington, TX to attend University of Texas of Arlington for my Masters Degree in Music Education. I love to teach young children and have volunteered at elementary schools and also with the American Orff-Schulwerk Association (creative music and movement focus).
In China I taught general music at a preschool with ages 3-7 years old with singing, movement, instruments, and more! The main curriculum was the Kodaly method and Orff-approach. And also private and group lessons for all ages at a private school.
I am fluent in both spoken and written English, and a native speaker of Mandarin.
I live in Plano, TX with my husband and look forward to wonderful creative experiences through music education here at MAS and FSMPA!
