Mariam Osman began her piano training at the age of four. In addition to piano, she has also studied classical violin, viola, cello, and voice, and taken lessons in traditional Chinese pipa and viola da gamba. Mariam has been teaching professionally for more than ten years and has taught both privately (studio piano, strings, voice, and theory) as well as in the classroom (engineering and life sciences calculus, English for second-language learners, and music theory). She has previously taught piano, strings, musicianship, and music theory from the Royal Conservatory of Music curriculum, regularly preparing piano and violin students for annual RCM examinations and certification. Her previous violin students have earned multiple awards for outstanding merit in violin, ranking highest in their examination scores not only in the Tampa Bay area, but also in the state of Florida. Her previous piano students have been accepted as piano performance majors and minors at the University of Florida, Princeton, Harvard, Carnegie Mellon, and Case Western.
Mariam’s performance experiences encompass diversity of solo, collaborative, and ensemble performance, both instrumental and vocal. Her instrumental experience includes professional accompaniment, chamber music (as violinist, violist, and cellist), continuo playing, and solo performance (piano, violin, and voice). She appears on numerous recordings, including an album of Delius’s Sea Drift and Appalachia with the Florida Orchestra and Master Chorale of Tampa Bay under the Naxos label, and a recording of the Brahms Ein deutsches Requiem, which received two Grammy nominations in 2012.
