Dr. Hu’s piano students have won numerous competitions and contests locally to internationally. His teaching traits: systematic/detailed training from basic technique tovirtuoso performance, from music reading skill to comprehensive musicianship. Students can really have “fun” to play the piano only when they really know how to play the piano in artistic way and have proper technique. Students are encouraged to participate in piano events-competitions. It’s however not the reason why we learn the piano. The goal is to be a winner yourself, not winning competitions.
