Haiyang Wang with his Flutes.jpg


Haiyang Wang is a classically trained concert flutist and music educator. He enjoys performing various styles of music in solo, chamber, and orchestral settings. He is a founding member of the Ensemble 126 and the substitute flute for Sinfonia Gulf Coast Orchestra. He has presented at the Florida Flute Association Convention in Orlando and was invited to perform at the “Sound of Baroque” Early Music Festival in Shanghai, China. In addition to the concert flute, Wang is also specialized in early music and baroque flute (the one-keyed flute). A highlight of his baroque music experience was an original-instrument performance in Dallas of Bach’s St. John Passion. (The performance was reviewed by the leading Dallas critic Mr. Scott Cantrell as being more satisfying to him than the Dallas Symphony performance of the St. Matthew Passion.)

As a teacher, Wang enjoys helping students in private lessons, music classes, and chamber coachings. His experiences include teaching undergraduate music major students in Applied Flute Lessons, Woodwind Classes, and Flute Studio Classes at Florida State University. He has taught flute at a number of public middle and high schools, where he helped many of his students to advance in the All-State auditions. Wang also works with students in his private studio in which the members range from 8 years old beginners to 65 years old music enthusiasts. The private studio allows Wang to create well-rounded learning experiences and personalized trainings for his students. While working on the playing skills, the lessons often offer informative showcases and discussions on music history and theory as well as sessions for ear training and sight-reading. The lesson structure and content are designed and prepared according to the needs and interests of the students.

Wang’s music background began at an early age. He started learning keyboard at age four, switched to flute at age eight, started performing at age nine, and won several competitions through age ten to twelve. He was then recommended by Prof. Tong Yu to study as a flute performance major at the Shenyang Conservatory of Music Secondary School Division at age thirteen. Wang continued to pursue his music study after moving to the US in 2009. He received his Bachelor of Music degree at the University of North Texas and his Master of Music degree from Florida State University, where he also served as one of the Graduate Teaching Assistants. His principle teachers and mentors include Prof. Eva Amsler, Dr. Melissa Colgin, Dr. Karen Large, Dr. Lee Lattimore, Dr. James Scott, Prof. Terri Sundberg, Prof. Jixue Yu, and Prof. Tong Yu. Haiyang has also performed in a number of masterclasses across the globe and received guidance from renowned flutists such as William Bennett, Rachel Brown, Paul Edmund-Davies, Gergely Ittzés, Barthold Kuijken, and Karl-Heinz Schütz.
