About Judy Huang
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, along with 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, while training them to listen at the same time. Therefore, when they make mistakes, they're likely to notice them through listening while playing. She imitates how they play a passage, and how she plays it, and asks 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. Most piano teachers would ask their students to practice more and more, yet practicing more does not necessarily translate into a better playing. Judy stresses how to effectively practice, and practice better, not just practice more. Each lesson will be clearly instructed with how to practice for the week.
Piano lessons include theory, ear-training, sight-reading, history, technique, performance, interpretation, and artistry. For youngsters, all genres of music are introduced, despite the fact that classical music is concentrated. On the other hand, teenagers and adult students can have their preferences.
