Miss Donna Huang is a dynamic, dedicated, and creative piano teacher whose passion lies in teaching and empowering children. She values children's amazing gifts and hopes to inspire and empower her students to do their best and to be themselves.

I will assist you with preparing for any future music theory test or simply learning music for enjoyment.
I am a self-motivated, creative individual who champions diversity, equality, and inclusion in music education, as well as developing and promoting novel teaching ways to overcome learning hurdles. I am a multilingual communicator (Mandarin Chinese and Taiwanese) who develops great bonds with kids and their parents/guardians from a variety of ethnic, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
