Lydia taught my daughter both harp and piano for 8 years. She is an excellent teacher. I could not have asked for better. Lydia is extremely musical, and is professional, yet down-to-earth, kind and friendly. She is very patient and has pleasant to be around. She has recorded CD's of her harp music, has played with orchestras, and has attended many music study programs. Her musical ability is superior and she LOVES to share her the joy of playing both harp and piano to others. Lydia is also flexible with the pieces she teaches. She is very good at teaching the classical pieces and exercises, but also can teach pop and other genres. She has two recitals a year which are in a relaxed atmosphere but still give the student the performance experience. GREAT TEACHER!

Years ago, Lydia was kind enough to try Skype lessons with us, given we are 8-9 hours away from her. We sought a Bible believing, Faith-oriented Christian Harp teacher and she was it! We have been delighted with her teaching, her love for music and for working with the students. We have had the privilege of watching her play in the Orchestra and, traveling the 8-ish hours for Spring and Fall recital and hearing her play with the students and encourage the students on their playing in the recitals. She even recently coached us through a pedal harp purchase and her help was invaluable. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for piano and or Harp instruction.

Ben U. Columbus, OH

I have been playing the piano since I was five years old. My passion for music led me to steadily progress in my studies, and I naturally chose to major in music at Ohio State. To broaden my scope, I earned my degree in Composition while taking piano lessons concurrently from Professor Emeritus George Haddad and Professor Steven Glaser. Rather than focus on one area of piano music, I augmented my repertoire through extensive study of the Baroque through Modern periods. In addition, I accompanied orchestra and band instruments, a youth choir, and even performed the first movement of Shostakovich’s Second Piano Concerto with my high school’s chamber orchestra.

I am very perceptive of my students’ rate of improvement and level of engagement with the music they’re playing. If they are stuck on something, I am patient to go over the lesson as much as needed. If they feel bored, I will find more challenging music for them. A great incentive to play is that I offer lessons on my ...

I have been taking Latin lessons with Ben for some time and am very pleased with his method. I have never studied Latin before, so we began from scratch, using a lesson plan built by Ben with the help of college-level textbooks. Ben has been very diligent and disciplined in building demanding but realistic lesson plans every week, as well as in creating thorough and helpful practice exercises. On top of this Ben is a polite, pleasant and accommodating fellow, open to questions and suggestions. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to study Latin.

Szu-Yu is very knowledgeable and skilled, everything stated about her is correct. I am very please that she is willing to work with me and discuss how I play, I am almost 60 years old and can play some. She is not judgmental but very positive and encouraging. She is not intimidated by my age, (my daughter is older). She knows her stuff and is very confident.
We meet at a practice facility in a college, that is fun and interesting.
My money is being well spent and I am learning things that should help me to grow and enjoy the piano, and possible reach a personal goal to be able to play at church.
