About me

My name is Donna Huang and my passion lies in working with and inspiring children. I love teaching piano and encouraging all my students to succeed in learning to play the piano!

With over 12 years of private piano teaching experience and over 20 years of classical piano music education, I have taught piano lessons to numerous students of various abilities and ages privately at my home and at community centres in the Metro Vancouver Area. I have taught from various popular beginners book series such as Faber & Faber, Alfred's, Bastien, and I follow the Royal Conservatory of Music Syllabus.

I had the honour of learning how to teach piano to students with the well-known and well-respected piano teacher Mr. Edward J. Parker for over a year through his book 'Piano Pedagogy and Performance Principles'.

I am an Associate of the London College of Music and I achieved my Grade 10 Honours RCM in Piano. I am also a certified teacher in Orff music, Piano Adventures®, WunderKeys™, and a BC Certified Elementary teacher for grades k-7. As a Certified BC Teacher, this means I have even more experience and training in teaching children and that I have successfully passed a criminal record check.

Music has shaped all parts of my life since I was a child. I started learning the piano at the age of 7, and I loved to perform, sing, and dance! All throughout elementary school and high school, I was happily singing in choir clubs, performing as an accompanist pianist for the elementary choir, dancing and creating hip hop moves after school at the Boys and Girls club, and performing music and dance in school talent shows, local music festivals, and community events. Learning music at a young age allowed me to share my creativity in various ways and I am thankful for the opportunity to learn music which has allowed me to express myself and truly be me!

Besides teaching, I love to read, eat good food, workout, chill and be inspired by others! My favourite composer of all is Frédéric Chopin, a virtuoso pianist of the Romantic era.

I am an elementary educator at heart too, you can also view my teaching blog to learn more about me!
