MusiciansMegan Yang

Born and raised in Sydney, violinist Megan Yang will commence her first year of training at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) with Dr Robin Wilson in 2022. From a young age, she was surrounded by like-minded young musicians and guided by inspiring teachers, and now cannot imagine a life without music.

After graduating from the Conservatorium High School, Megan completed her Bachelor of Music (Performance) at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, under the tutelage of Associate Professor Goetz Richter. At this institution, Megan was supported by multiple scholarships and prizes including the Patricia Long Scholarship, Ted and Susan Meller Memorial Scholarship, and the Henderson Travel Scholarship. In 2021, Megan participated in the Australian Youth Orchestra programs as Associate Concertmaster and was selected to participate in the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra String Fellowship program.

Passionate about chamber music, Megan has participated in masterclasses with Andrea Gajic, Iakov Zats, Wayne Foster-Smith, and members of the Doric, Goldmund and Goldner string quartets. Megan thoroughly enjoys performing chamber music with friends and looks forward to creating intimate and captivating performances with ANAM musicians.

Aside from performing, Megan is also keen on pedagogy and teaching music, and most recently acted as Director of the International School of Music Killarney Heights. Her students have won prizes at local competitions, positions at the Conservatorium High School, and achieved distinctions in AMEB exams.
