“Hello Ming,
I just wanted to reach out and tell you that over the years, I have been impressed by the teaching that I have heard coming from your studio. I hear many young players across Canada in RCM exams, and also many players at the international level in competitions and festivals. I am always impressed you hear your students.”

“Ming Huang is a great guitar teacher and player. I’ve been in his classes for a few months and I’ve learned a lot from him. He is wonderful at teaching you all aspects of guitar playing. I couldn’t have passed my Grade 4 RCM Exam with a mark of 84 without him. Thanks, Ming for all your help!”
