About Chang L.

Dr. Chang is both an active musician and a dedicated instructor in Los Angeles. Born into a family of musicians, she was introduced to the piano at the young age of four, and the flute at age of nine. She has given performances on both instruments throughout her music career. Having attended elementary, middle and high schools that were attached to a music conservatory, she has been a professionally trained musician since a young age. She started to provide private flute lessons, piano lessons, aural skills, and music theory classes already while in high school in China. In the US, Dr. Lu has appeared in many Hollywood movie soundtracks, she has also performed as principal flutist with Beverly Hills Symphony Orchestra, Hollywood Sinfonietta, Los Angeles Sinfonietta, Debut Symphony Orchestra, San Jose Youth Symphony, Fremont Flute Ensemble, USC Thornton Wind Ensemble, Thornton Symphony Orchestra, Thornton Opera Orchestra, and various chamber ensembles. Dr. Chang has worked with many renowned conductors such as James Judd, James Conlon, Carl St. Clair, Gerard Schwarz, H.Robert Reynolds, Sharon Lavery, Larry Livingston and Michael Powers. Chang has just had a concert leading the Thornton Baroque Sinfonia Ensemble performing a Telemann Flute Concerto. Dr. Chang graduated with a Doctoral of Musical Arts Degree from USC Thornton School of Music in flute performance studying with Jim Walker, former Los Angeles Philharmonic principal flutist. She also earned minor degrees in Music Theory, Orchestral Conducting, and Early Music. Dr. Chang has been a successful teacher teaching at USC as an adjunct flute instructor as well as piano and music theory teaching at several music studios. Dr. Chang’s students have been awarded several prizes in national competitions, such as 1st prize in the SYMF competition in July 2016 and in 2020. Lesson Details: As a teacher, I love to see my students take pride in their improvements and strive to be a leader. I have taught many students at all levels. From teaching them how to read music while providing the fundamentals of piano playing, to college-level of auditioning for significant competitions. I particularly like to focus on students who are interested in band and orchestra at school. It’s the joy of teaching to see kids marvel at the different tones and musicality they can produce. For all my lessons I include music theory and ask that students try their best to learn how music is connected and formed. Learning music is a rewarding process, so please be patient and open-minded. Feel free to ask me any questions and I look forward to meeting you!
