Meng Hao 郝梦
Hello! My name is Meng Hao, and I am a creative, enthusiastic music teacher with many years of experience in both one-on-one and classroom teaching. I was a professor of music at both Minjiang and Fuzhou Universities in Fuzhou, China, and taught privately in my hometown of Wuhan and in Fuzhou, China. I currently teach piano at the Center City and Germantown branches of Settlement Music School, as well as in my private studio in Wynnewood, PA. I serve as a Mandarin interpreter for the Nationalities Service Center in Philadelphia, and teach Mandarin at MJ Test Prep in Bryn Mawr, PA.
I look forward to being your instructor and sharing my joy of music and language with you!

I work with students of all ages and ability levels. I try to instill a love of music and learning, and create highly customized lessons tailored to each student. For young students, I offer professional level training for technique and musical development. For older students, I make the lessons fun and encourage my students to explore their full musical potential.
