Steven F.
Very knowledgeable and experienced in not just playing the violin but teaching it as well.
Chris T.
At the age of 58 I decided to start taking violin lessons for 2 reasons, enjoyment of playing music and exercise my brain. I found Lucy K on the takelessons.com website and she was able to accommodate my request for lessons in my home on a Sunday. Starting from scratch, she taught me the fundamentals of playing and I have made some progress over the last 8 months. She is patient with me yet will push me along and at time bring me out of my comfort zone, which is good. She has the ability and training to teach students from early age to older adults like me. In addition, she also teaches piano, which my wife started lessons with Lucy K at the same time I started violin. She has my recommendation if you have interest in either violin or piano.

The best instructor for my daughter.
Will recommend to friends and family.
Audrey
Lipeng is very patient and encouraging for my beginner 11-year-old, using the video format well to demonstrate the songs and watch the student. She has been a good fit for a player who is motivated to improve but can complain a little bit about practicing everyday.
Paul C.
Very first lesson with Lipeng and I enjoyed it so very much. Lipeng encourages to listen to the music and then accentuate the notes to make it music, not to simply play them.

I’m a bilingual professional drummer/musician with a Masters degree in music. I have also been teaching drums for more than 18 years with students of all ages, from beginners to advanced drummers. I have also toured worldwide with many top artists like Becky G., Thalia, Oscar Hernandez, Lauren Jauregui, etc. Part of the things I think are important to learn as a drummer are: How to develop independence, hand/foot technique and speed, rudiments, theory, how to play different genres among other things.

"Great first lesson! Eric spent a lot of time listening to my voice and understanding my background in order to make the most of our time and determine what our next lessons should cover. We started with vocal exercises that illustrated/practiced basic concepts that were enlightening to an inexperienced singer like myself, so I feel like I left the lesson already having learned a lot! Though I was nervous, he was always very reassuring and kept the lesson light and fun to ease my nerves. Very much looking forward to my next lesson!"

"I've been taking online lessons with Wei for the past couple of months, and I quite enjoy them. As an adult piano player, I don’t have specific goals. I just play for fun most of the time. Wei, nevertheless, made specific teaching plans for me. He learns my strength and weaknesses, and chooses pieces that are both enjoyable to play and technically challenging for me, so that I’m able to tackle my weaknesses. His expertise helps me improve in many ways, like piano techniques and overall understanding of music. After a few lessons with him, I gained more confidence in playing. I’m able to improve my performance on the pieces I love. Wei is also an easy-going person. It’s fun to work with him. I strongly recommend his lessons if you are looking for a teacher with patience, expertise and passion for music."
