Xiaolan Ruan is one of NEMPAC’s longest tenured faculty members, teaching students of all ages since 2005. Xiaolan saw her first piano at the age of eight, when she attended her mother’s opera performance and was inspired to play the piano for over an hour. From that time onwards, she loved the piano. She was accepted to be a piano student at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music’s primary and high school program, and later became a piano teacher at Shanghai Dance School where she was awarded the title of Lecturer. In the 1990s, Xiaolan had the opportunity to come to Boston and study at Longy School of Music for her master’s degree in piano. Since then, she has taught piano in the Boston area for over twenty years. In 2005, Xiaolan began teaching piano at NEMPAC, making her one of the organization’s first faculty members.
