About Me

The piano/music instructor, Judy Huang has great passion for piano teaching.  She has invested her time and thought into it.  She would like her students to enjoy, understand, and bring the ARTISTRY of music into their life.  Judy explains why we need to have a good posture and awareness of how our physical parts work together, why we need to have a flexible wrist to play arpeggios, why we push our elbows out to play big chords, why we use different weight transfer to the hands, why we don't attack notes, why we rock back and forth to play tremolos, why we bring the melody out rather than just make sound out through different pitches, and etc.
 
Piano studying is not only about learning the notations but also expressions, interpretations, phrasing, structures, tonal relationships, mood, articulations, analysis, and etc.  Judy includes some music history in association with the pieces the students are learning to play, besides the theory and structure of it.  She would ask her students to find any patterns in the pieces and any differences between the same or similar passages.  She often asks students to tell her what they can find throughout the pieces based on the knowledge they have and what they have acquired through the lessons.  She asks them to listen while playing and train them to listen.  When they make mistakes, they likely do notice the weirdness about them through listening the sound.  She imitates HOW they play a passage and HOW she plays it, and ask them what the differences are in terms of techniques and artistic interpretation.  She explains how the students should practice and how they can tackle and isolate a problematic area.

Griffin, GA

My daughter started taking lesson's from Ms. Huang when she was only six years old. Judy Huang was a patient and very professional teacher when instructing my very young, yet shy daughter. The instructions were well organized and fun. We had to move away for a few years but after my return, I sought out Ms. Huang to continue teaching my now teenage daughter. I found that the piano teacher we hired in the interim was teaching my daughter how to play by ear only. Once Ms. Huang resumed my child's instructions, my daughter absorbed music theory, became proficient in reading sheet music while keeping her artistic flare. I would highly recommend Ms. Huang as she is a gifted piano teacher.

Our children have been going to Judy for 6 years, beginning at 6 years old. She is respectful, patient and kind with her way of teaching the children. Judy likes to keep the communication open between her and the parents of the students, so that she is able to tailor her teaching to each child. She teaches them to evaluate the music by the techniques they have learned through her. Judy has taught the children that it’s not about playing notes but the musicality of each piece of music. Over the last 5 years, Judy has prepared both children to participate in music festivals and both have received awards for superior ratings. I would highly recommend Judy to anyone that is interested in playing piano or has a child that is interested in piano.

I’ve been a student of Judy Huang for 3+ years and look forward to lesson time every time! She is an excellent teacher! She doesn’t just tell you how...she shows you how to play well, using the best technique and musicality, not just playing notes. She has a calm patience about herself and a kind caring demeanor that makes a stumbling student like me feel at ease! I highly recommend her to any piano student, beginner or advanced.




Fayetteville, GA

In 1985 our family moved from Germany to the USA. In Germany I worked for a cultural organization, organizing exhibitions for artists, book readings by the authors and concerts. My dream was to learn to paint when I retire. Then, I found a painting class offered by Judy Huang in Peachtree City, GA. What I had learned in school was long forgotten, and so I started from Zero. I enjoyed every class with her and learned a lot. I told myself that, when I sold 20 of my paintings I would accept to be called an artist. Indeed, I sold more than that! My heartfelt thankfulness goes to Judy, my excellent and patient teacher. Karin Frankowiak, Fayetteville GA
