Meet Our Author

Ying Ying Ng is the author and co-founder of Poco Studio, an educational music publisher.  Ying graduated from the Conservatory of Music and Drama in Dublin, majoring in music teaching for children.  Through this life-changing experience, she inherited a lifelong passion to teach music.  For her lessons, Ying used to create teaching and learning materials to add to existing curricula since they were limited to textbooks and syllabuses, and inaccessible to students.  All her books evolved through the many interactive exercises, visual aids, and game activities she painstakingly developed for her students.  Ying authored several book series for Poco Studio, including Music Theory for Young Children, Poco Piano for Young Children (with Margaret O’Sullivan Farrell), Sight Reading for Young Pianists, Music Theory for Young Musicians, Theory Drills for Young Children, and Poco Classroom Board Games;  These titles are well received by both students and teachers, with two series translated into Spanish and Simplified Chinese.  She co-authored “Teacher Handbook for Kodály’s 333 Reading Exercises “with Sarolta Platthy, and co-developed a Kodály-inspired music program “Every Child Sings” with Borbála Szirányi and Alethia Bei Er Ngo.
