About the Founder
From the time Natalia Huang started to give lessons at the age of fifteen, she knew teaching would be a career for life. Natalia was a natural at interacting with students and felt at ease when communicating her knowledge onto others. Once accepted into the prestigious Manhattan School of Music for Bachelors in Piano Performance, Natalia was focused on becoming an extremely well-rounded pianist. Natalia understood that the more knowledge she gained, the more her future students would benefit from her. Natalia Huang Piano Studio was founded in 2003 in New York City. She had a vision of a warm yet professional learning environment for her studio. This resonated with parents and students as she quickly filled up her studio with over thirty students.
In 2008, she founded Performing Pianists of New York with fellow teacher, Akiko Sasaki. This provided more non-competitive adjudication opportunities for students all over New York City. Natalia's students perform at annual recitals and workshops, and are known to receive high marks from the ABRSM exam. Natalia is also experienced with preparing students for auditions and competitions.
Natalia is a piano teacher who knows she is destined to teach. At the age of five, she started to take piano lessons. Even though playing the piano had always been enjoyable, practicing quickly became tedious. For a while, thoughts of quitting piano ran through her mind until she met her teacher, Renee Chang. Renee was a teacher who understood how to communicate with students, and released the passion in Natalia for the piano. Since then, Natalia told herself that she would become a piano teacher that could become a motivation to students like Renee was to her.
