Virginia Tech doesn't have much from what I know.

November 6, 2004 at 11:41 PM · Hi! I'm from Lynchburg, VA. I was in the Roanoke Youth Symphony and studied in Roanoke and Charlottesville as well as Lynchburg. Some good teachers around the area are Hasse Borup at UVA (who replaced my old teacher), James Glazebrook (former director of the aforementioned RYS) at Tech...yes there IS a good teacher there....and Benedict Goodfriend in Roanoke. His wife Jane Wang also teaches, but I found him to be a much better instructor. I've never heard anything about Dr. Huang, but I know that there are a few good teachers around the Lynchburg area as well. You might also try, depending on what level you want, some of the area colleges for students. Good luck!
