Welcomes You


Hi, I’m Sarah Chan: A piano teacher, social advocate, and mother of two. 

I am proud to live local in Edmonton, on Treaty 6. 

Who is Miss Sarah?

A long time ago I was the newest "Miss Chan" to start teaching at a music school, so my students started calling me "Miss Sarah" instead. I was born and raised in Edmonton (my parents are from Hong Kong). I have a MA in Cultural Studies and, a BA with a major in English Literature and minor in Music. These days I split my time running my piano studio; raising my two kids; and, engaging heavily in community building as a social advocate alongside my husband, Mayor Don Iveson. Here is a list of my past and current community involvement.

What Does She Do?

I love being a musician, teacher, and small business owner! Further to music and teaching, my passion is connecting with youth (of all ages). My social advocacy focuses on education, youth in leadership, and empowering women & girls. 

I love visiting schools and connecting with youth via conferences; Am available as a keynote speaker; And, welcome opportunities to participate in and learn about transformational community work.
