Fonyue "Taiwanese-American pianist Fonyue Donn, also known as Anchie, holds a Master of Music from Boston University College of Fine Arts and a Bachelor of Music with highest honors from University of Michigan. Currently, she studies with Paul Rutman at The Hartt School, where she is a teaching fellow and doctoral candidate in piano performance.

Anchie is the 2011 winner of the Connecticut MTNA Competition.

Recent performances this summer include masterclasses at the Baroque Performance Institute in Oberlin, OH on harpsichord. Anchie has also participated in the Chautauqua Music Festival, Aspen Music Festival, and Bowdoin International Music Festival.

Teaching Philosophy

As a piano teacher, I believe in empowering students to embark on a journey of self-discovery and musical discovery. I emphasize the step-by-step learning process to build necessary skills of musicianship, piano technique, artistry, but also learning skills, so students can develop independence. Students in my studio participate in aspects of the artistic process, from studying to performing. This cycle is essential to the growth of students as artists, learning to express their musical voice.

When she's not playing the piano, Anchie loves dancing ballet and playing the harpsichord.
