Lilly is a fun and attentive piano instructor, she keeps the lessons moving along and time flies by. She adds a lot of techniques not found in books, and prepares students for performance recitals.

Our first experience was great! Ms. Lilly was so nice we were absolutely comforted by this. It is our first time having private lessons for anything and she is the best

I am very happy taking voice lessons with Lilly as evidenced by me willing to drive an hour to see her. She has a lot of knowledge and experience in singing and therefore understands my needs so that I can produce what she asks me to. I had no singing ability in the beginning and I was so embarrassed by my voice I couldn't even sing when I was alone. Now, I feel encouraged by the progress I have made and would highly recommend Lilly as a voice instructor.

My first Korean lesson was really great. I think that Lilly
Is a natural- born teacher. She taught me the
Korean alphabet & shared not only language
help, but an insight into Korean culture, which
I find very interesting & useful as I learn the
language. Thanks to Lilly!

Ms. Lilly is an excellent piano teacher. She has exceeded my expectations by teaching my young daughter piano in a fun atmosphere. My daughter looks forward to her piano lessons with Ms. Lilly and I am very pleased with her progress.

Outstanding artist and teacher!

Lilly is a thoughtful instructor. I loved how she took time to understand my child's level of instruction and ways to learn best. I was particularly impressed with her follow through. She took time during a non scheduled day to e-mail and ask if my student had any questions. These things inspire my daughter to practice and is helping her to love the piano. Thank you Lilly!
