Iman’s Music Studio was started to share Ms. Iman’s passion for music and the connections it can facilitate. Opening and operating it in the neighborhood where her family has been for over a decade allows for her vast worldly experience to coalesce with where she calls home. The state of the art facilities and world class faculty reflect her passion for the craft and dedication to the artform. From what began as an empty shell in a new building, she has carefully attended to designing a welcoming physical framework to host a progressive experiential model for studying music that expresses her unique and universal values. Come by and share in the music, as we earnestly engage with the craft, and wholeheartedly attempt to compliment the community that has so warmly welcomed us.
At Iman’s Music Studio, we foster a supportive and fun way to discover and nourish individual or group musicianship in a safe, clean, and acoustically treated studio environment. We are dedicated to providing a positive experience for everyone involved. We value diversity, inclusion, and enjoying engaging in the process of developing ourselves and connecting through the practice of music.
Hope to hear from you!
Throughout her music career, Ms. Iman has performed in concerts and recitals in various forums. She takes pleasure in solo performances, as well as performing in orchestras and in chamber music groups. Her performances often display her inner heart and soul as she immerses herself completely into the music. Ms. Iman developed and displayed her love and passion for classical music at a very young age. It was her mother’s admiration for classical ballet, which primed Ms. Iman’s appreciation for classical music and arts as well.
Ms. Iman earned her B.M. in Cello Performance from Ohio State University in Columbus Ohio. She was awarded scholarships to study under the tutelage of Dr. William Conable. During her collegiate years, Ms. Iman maintained outstanding academic achievements; she was on the Dean’s List in consecutive years and was a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars. She then went on to win the nomination for the Mortar Board of OSU/Senior Class Honor Society. In the same year, Ms. Iman accepted the graduate assistantship from Ithaca College, New York, and continued her cello studies with Cellist Elizabeth Simkin. During that time, Ms. Iman also served as concert manager assistant, working closely with many renowned musicians, such as Grammy winning American classical pianist, Emanuel Ax. Ms. Iman was invited to perform at the Lincoln Center in New York City, alongside the symphony orchestra of Ithaca College School of Music.
Ms. Iman then returned to her home country, Taiwan. She held a position of cello faculty in the music program at Ta-Tong Middle School. She also worked as a former adjunct instructor at Chung Chou University of Science and Technology, the National Taichung University of Science and Technology, where she taught undergraduate music and art appreciation courses.
She exudes an enthusiasm to share the lessons that music can offer in both personal development and between social circles, as well as the character it can imbue in the students that they can then take with them throughout their lives.
