My training in piano started from when I was 5 years old. Since then, I continuously took piano lesson and have had performed on the stage as well. I continued my training in piano until the end of my undergraduate at the University of Hartford under David Westfall, Paul Rutman, Susan Cheng and Grace Smith. Over the summer during my college years, I worked as a private piano instructor in Korea for a part-time job. I also worked as an ear-training and music theory tutor at my college.
I earned my Master's Degree in Music Composition in 2017 under the guidance of Richard Danielpour at Manhattan School of Music.
I also hold Bachelor's Degree in Music Composition with Piano performance concentration from the University of Hartford.
Currently, I have 8 students age from 4 - adult.
My students' level ranges from total beginner to advanced.

My 6 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Catherine for about 7 months now, and we couldn't be happier. After begging me for lessons, of course my child already hates practicing. But Catherine couldn't be more patient, encouraging my daughter so that she enjoys playing by the end of each lesson. Catherine also seems very flexible in her approach to teaching. While she does follow standard curricula for the beginner, she is also extremely open to allowing my daughter play the music she wants to play. Catherine has really tailored my daughter's learning to suit her taste and ability, which engages my daughter and encourages her to want to learn.+ Read More
Cat has been an absolute pleasure to work with. My partner and I have both been taking in-home lessons with her every week for about two months now, and we've both grown much more comfortable and familiar with piano at our respective skill levels. I'd highly recommend Cat to anyone asking me about piano teachers!+ Read More
Cat is very helpful and patient, we look forward to our weekly lessons!
She is very energetic and a great communicator. I was taking some basic lessons from her and I believe that teaching is somehow in her blood. She was the most great music teacher I’ve ever met. :)
Ms.Phang is a wonderful teacher. She is dedicated to her students and loves to help her students feel encouraged. She is versatile in teaching piano, theory and composition.
Very patient and kind teacher!
I am learning how to read music as well as proper piano technique from her and she seems classically trained as well as passionate about music!
