I have had the pleasure of having Bang Lang Do teach private lessons and masterclasses for my piano students on several occasions and we have learned so much from her. Detailed, organized, excellent, this world class teacher, who also happens to be an amazing pianist, will be an ideal choice for lessons. I couldn't recommend any colleague more highly.

As a colleague, I can say that Bang Lang is a dedicated educator and committed to putting forth tremendous effort to facilitate her students' learning. She was a kind and supportive coworker, and I would highly recommend her as a music instructor.
