Piano Lessons

Testimonials :

"I have studied piano since I was a young child and Hoang Nguyen has been my best teacher. As a concert pianist with an advanced degree in performance, he has an extensive understanding of the repertoire. Hoang teaches the musical line-where a piece is going and how to get there. He has high standards but is altogether patient and gentle with his students. I recommend him highly for students at all levels who have a serious interest in the piano and in playing great music." Ira T. Lott, MD. Professor of Pediatrics and Neurology, UCI School of Medicine & Director of the Orange County Children Hospital

"For the past 9 years, we have had the honor of having Hoang Nguyen as our daughters’ piano instructor. He was highly recommended to us as a wonderful instructor with the best temperament and patience for young students. Immediately after the first lessons, both of our daughters were impressed and highly excited to study under Hoang’s tutelage. Hoang is a teacher who possesses great passion and knowledge for music. He instills a sense of dedication and confidence in our daughters’ piano training but always maintains the lessons to be fun and exciting. He tailors the lessons to the strength of the student’s ability by understanding the student’s interest as well as needs. He teaches a wide array of musical genres to keep the student’s interest and focus. He consistently challenges his students by involving them in recitals, level tests, or simply performing for community services. Aside knowing Hoang as a piano instructor, we are also honored to have experience Hoang’s numerous solo performances. His passion and dedication clearly define him as a renowned performer. Through the years, he is not just a piano teacher but also a mentor for my daughters. It is with great pleasure and honor to have him as our daughters’ piano teacher. We have the utmost respect and highest regard for him as a person and a wonderful piano teacher." Tu H. Do, Parent of Natalie, 16 years old
