*** Lesson Details ***
For children, I use the Piano Adventures Method. This method excels in step by step teaching of musicality and artistry. In six months, students will be able to read and play simple melodies.
For adults, I use Alfred's Adult Piano Course. It is recognized as one of the best in the industry. It explains concepts clearly and briefly, and it drills material while offering delightful pieces.

As an older adult, relearning the piano, I appreciate Lillian's skill in boosting my confidence while stretching my abilities. She keeps it fun, but challenges me to improve. Lillian is just who I needed to enjoy playing again.

After 40 years without lessons, I decided I wanted to be able to enjoy my piano. Lillian is the perfect teacher for me. A gentle nudge, lots of praise, I can see progress is being made. I certainly leave my lessons with a smile on my face and playing pieces I never thought I could master.

I enjoyed my first lesson with Lillian. She was very respectful of my previous learning and the many years spent without regular play. Together, we are improving my skills and I am grateful to have found her.

Lillian is patient, kind, positive, and careful to combine theory with practical teaching. As an older student, just learning piano, I learned more from her in one lesson than the five lessons I took before. She is excellent. I have hope now that I can learn piano.

Lillian has been a very patient, understanding instructor for this older student who could no longer read notes. She makes learning to play again a fun lesson each time.

Lillian is a fantastic piano teacher! She is so sweet and patient with my five-year-old and praises her during the entire lesson. My daughter leaves feeling very proud of what she learned and excited to practice what Ms. Lillian taught her. I highly recommend Lillian; she is a delightful teacher!!!
