Raised by Chinese parents from the Philippines, and now based in Arizona, Ms. Tan has created a sequential series of books and music literacy materials designed to instruct students in an oral tradition begun with Beethoven, passed down to Bela Bartok and all the way to students today.
...
We also encourage children and adults to read and write music of their own as they study the works and to compose for the entire range of the piano. And we will also incorporate Jane Tan's teachings in what we do. One of the most exciting and gratifying parts of N. Jane Tan's work is the repertoire of music she has written for 5 pianos or 10 hands! The "Piano Teams," as they are called, present a unique opportunity for pianists to play together with other pianists.

Jane Tan started a team in the Las Vegas area and now there are national Piano Teams Competitions.
