Musician and music teacher Ah Young Sung of Shelton said it’s great to be able to watch her young students perform.
“I love being able to transfer what I’ve learned in music to the kids, like when I was little,” Sung said. “It’s very satisfying, although the kids can test your patience at times.”
Sung, 34, is a professional musician who plays the viola, violin and piano. She now is the principal violist for the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra.
She previously founded and performed with the Alianza String Quartet all over the world, including in Europe and Asia. Closer to home, she’s been featured on the stage at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
As an instructor, Sung is head of the faculty at the Connecticut School of Music in Westport. She offers one-on-one lessons with her students four days a week.
