I emphasize developing a strong foundation in technique and ear training that will carry over to any musical genre, from world-renowned classical repertoire, to classic rock, jazz, and folk, to children's songs or your favorite radio hits from today.
I am dedicated to unlocking every student's musical potential, at any age or experience level, whether the student is just beginning to explore the keyboard or is preparing for an important audition. But more than experience and insight, I teach students to use music as a vehicle for creativity and expression, and develop a sense of true musicianship that goes beyond playing all the correct notes and the right time.

About Lilia B.

Hello, my name is Lilia! I have over a decade experience in teaching and offer private lessons in guitar, piano, and voice with a balance between theory, technique, and and ear training to help you play the songs you love to listen to.

I created my own lesson book for guitar and am currently working on creating lesson books for piano. These lesson books use popular songs to keep learning engaging and fun! In 2017, my husband and I created our own music lesson program called Suncho School of Music!

In addition to music, I have always had a love of sports and fitness and earned a certification in personal training from the American Council on Exercise. I love to share both my passions for fitness and music with whomever would like to learn from me.

My education includes a degree in Guitar Performance from the California Institute of the Arts, earned in 2014.

In addition to teaching, I play the role of as the lead vocalist, guitarist, and composer in my rock band, called Karkaza. We are currently working on recording our debut album and playing shows in Los Angeles and other states in the US.

My favorite part of teaching is knowing that I helped the student have a better day and give them a rewarding activity to look forward to every week. Feel free to reach out any time, I would be happy to chat with you!

She came prepared and was accommodating. Lilia showed patience with my son with autism, which I appreciated and was relieved to see. She also has great pedagogical knowledge of how to instruct a child in piano.

She does "unclean" vocals in her band, Karkaza but is super knowledgeable on regular singing. After only a couple months, I'm beginning to see some progress despite my years singing improperly.

Lilia is a very sweet teacher, however that does not keep her from making sure work gets done she will put everything into perspective and she is very professional. She makes things easier to play for smaller hands and I would for sure recommend her to anyone. 👍

I was Lilia's mentor at California Institute of the Arts for three years. She is a hard worker, very determined and disciplined and a very promising, unique artist. Although she is primarily a guitarist she is also a highly trained and accomplished gymnast and acrobat. I have no doubt that Lilia makes an exciting, flexible and compassionate teacher.
