About this pro

Sean Tang-Wang was born on June 28, 1998 and is an twenty-year old student attending UCLA majoring in piano performance and mechanical engineering. Sean began playing the piano at age three, and gave his first public appearance at four.

In the summer of 2016, Sean was invited to Perugia, Italy to perform his Rachmaninoff 2nd Piano Concerto. There, he was given masterclasses by distinguished pianists around the globe and played a series of small concerts throughout Italy. In 2015, Sean was given a fully-paid for trip to Cortina, Italy to also play in the small city and other venues in Italy. In 2014, Sean won 1st place in the Glendale Piano Competition, was a semi finalist in the Spotlight Awards competition, won 1st place in the MTAC Piano Competition, and won 2nd Prize in the San Jose International Piano Competition. Sean was chosen to participate in the Ettingen International Piano Competition and was featured on the German Weekly. In 2013, he won first prize again in the Glendale Piano competition, and in 2012 and 2011, was a semi finalist and finalist in the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition and Virginia Waring International Piano Competition, respectively. In January 2011, Sean was invited by the San Diego Orchestral symphony to perform with pianist Lang Lang. In 2010, he achieved his goal in winning first place in the Los Angeles Liszt International Piano Competition, allowing him to play at the illustrious Carnegie Hall in May 2010. Also in that same year, he achieved three first places in one day in the Concerto, Solo, and Chopin Open categories in the Southwestern Youth Music Festival.

Sean is currently the student of Mrs. Inna Faliks. He has also had the privilege to study with Jenny Shin, Pavel Petrov, Dr. Andrew Banks, and pianist Ruebin Chen.

I'm a piano performance major at UCLA. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.


How did you get started teaching?

My mom's a piano teacher so naturally I carried on what she taught me! I love teaching, and I love seeing my students grow musically and come to appreciate the music they play.

Students of all levels. I've worked with the Royal ABRSM system, and CM as well. I've taught students as young as 5 years old and as old as 35.
