What Clients are Saying
“My two (2) kids go to this school for Piano Lessons. It’s a great school with teachers who care and they even got (ONE) of my kids to actually play correctly and she now likes playing the piano. They are strict but have real concern for the students and offer a great environment to excel. I would recommend Donna Lee and her Music School anytime. A+++++++”

“My son has been taking piano with Miss Donna since he was 7 and my daughter just started. I absolutely love her. She is fantastic with kids and really inspires them to play. She also has a recital that gives the kids a chance to play in front of an audience. She also encourages participation in the Certificate of Merit program. I am so glad we found her and Lee Music School.”

recommend them for kids
“My son, Cole, has been taking piano lessons with Miss Donna for about 4 months. We couldn't be happier with the results. Donna is an extremely patient teacher. Cole feels very comfortable when he is with her. Her teaching style has made my son more confident as she encourages him to play in front of audiences. Most importantly, Donna has taught my son how to read music. Cole was unable to read music before, he could only play by memorizing. This was a huge wake up call for us! Now with Miss Donna, Cole is learning theory, technique, and is able to read his music. Cole will also apply for CM this year. Hollywood Arts Academy is a good place for us to be! I recommend them for kids as well as adults. We are planning to have our daughter start vocal lessons soon.”

thoughtful and very patient
“Since I was very young I had always wanted to follow my dream of playing the violin. It was not until I had begun to be in my 60s that I was able to begin to challenge my bucket list with this endeavor. By simple luck I was able to connect with the Academy and I have been extremely pleased in both the management and the instructors. They are thoughtful and very patient and go out of their way to guide me.”
- Hudson Warren
Glad to be working with them
“We are happy to find Hollywood Arts Academy. They offer great service, easy to work with. Recently I had to cancel few lessons due to my schedule problem. Even though, every school has this policy of being consistent with the lessons to keep the spot, but Miss Donna was nice enough to let me get things right and allow me enough time. The best part about this school is that they still offer the lowest rate in this city but with great service. My son started taking piano lessons with them 2 months ago. Working great so far. My son can play a few songs now. We are planning to get a grand piano for him next year.”
- Tyler C
“I am a student of this academy and I have been learning flute as well as music theory at this school for 3 years. The teachers are very experienced professionals, and I learned many things from them. I successfully got a 95 on ABRSM music theory level 5 with a single try, and that is all thanks to the teachers at the Hollywood Arts Academy. I also recommended two of my friends to this school, and they both loved this school as much as I did.”
- Megan Zhang
Warm and Supportive
“I highly recommend Ms Donna and her staff. My son (age 9) has been taking piano lessons for 2 years and doing great! She is very warm and supportive. Her positive attitude and affirming attitude encourages my son. He enjoys lessons and will regularly practice on his own. Ms Donna is also VERY accommodating of our schedule and allows for changes and makeups without hassle. This flexibility is very important to us as my son does many other activities. The children all do a yearly concert at Christmas, something I looked for in a piano school.”
