About Cyber Single Reed Academy
Supporting schools and families globally through music education.
Cyber Single Reed Academy was established in 2012 as part of Dr. Qian's community service as a university faculty member. It started with only two students who were remotely taught via the Internet. As a result, one became the first chair in the 2017 Texas Music Educators Association’s 6A All-State Symphonic Band. The other was the Grand Prize winner of the Minnesota Orchestra’s Young Artist Concerto Competition, performing with the Minnesota Orchestra and on NPR’s “From the Top” radio show.
In 2020, after 13 years as a successful full-time college professor, Dr. Qian moved to Highland Village, Texas, where he has been giving clarinet lessons, saxophone lessons, and masterclasses at all levels, both live and online. The Academy has since expanded to a full-time private teaching studio. It has produced many successful students from Allen, Plano, Frisco, Denton, and Lewisville school districts in the Dallas area and other parts of the United States, and many other countries. In the fall of 2022, one student was appointed as the principal clarinet of the Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra Wind Ensemble; another student won the third prize in the 2021 Clareidoscope Clarinet Competition ( High School Division) hosted by the International Clarinet Association.
The Academy will continue to provide premier music education to support students' needs and music programs in the area and around the world.
Clarinet and Saxophone lessons are geared toward the needs of students in different stages of their development

“I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning.”
