About Lilly K.
It's very exciting that you've decided to take music lessons! You've come to the right place to find an awesome teacher. My love of music runs very deep and teaching others this skill brings me so much joy, whether you're a kid or an adult.
Currently, I am a global health worker, saving the world one place and illness at a time, while I teach music on the side. I've spent many years in school and music has been the one medium through which I have relieved stressed and made myself happy, inspired, and relaxed. While going to school, I also continued my music by being a teacher as well as taking a couple of courses and helping out with the university orchestra.
Music entered my life when I was 8, with my first instrument being the Flute, then the Santoor, tonbak, followed by the Piano, and today the Oud. Because I began music with a teacher who was studying music academically, I have a very strong background in theory, technique, and tone. Meanwhile however, I truly believe it's about having fun and loving what you play/learn.
I have taught adults and children so I feel comfortable with any age group. I also have a pretty vast repertoire of different books and pieces that I use for different levels and ages.
My philosophy is for the learning/teaching experience to be a complete collaboration between me and the student. I am tough with certain things because I know they're super important to master but I like to also bend certain rules so that my student is happy with the classes.
I hope to hear from you and if not, I hope you find a really awesome music teacher and start this fantastic journey!

Teaching since 2007
My 9 year old granddaughter joined her school band to play flute with no prior experience in either endeavor. The band instructor has little time to help the children individually and so my granddaughter struggled on her own. We found Lily and after only 3 lessons my granddaughter's abiity to read music and play the flute has increased dramatically. Lily's teaching style is very matter of fact, patient and encouraging. My granddaughter looks forward to her lessons and to spending time with Lily. We feels Lily is a wonderful teacher and a real inspiration to our blossoming flutist.Show More
I have been taking lessons from Lilly for about 5 months now.
She is fun, helpful and always has a positive attitude. She always arrives for classes with tons of energy. I have learned a lot from Lilly.
Thank you SO much for making learning the piano fun

i wish to learn music.
Lilly is a great teacher. She genuinely cares about creating a great learning experience. She listens to questions and gives clear answers. She has a natural ability to be un-intimidating and very likable. Lilly is both fun and practical in her teaching approach. I learned and grew in leaps and bounds with each lesson. Thank you Lilly!Show More
Lilly is really nice and know how to teach piano. My shy sons are comfortable with her and really excited about next lesson.
Lily was so fun and friendly. My 5 year old, Riley, was at her best behavior for her! I really saw Riley enthusiastic about being a team with Lily. I love the sticker chart for homework.
I love that Lily shared a bit about herself. So fun and interesting and welcoming!
This was only my very first lesson BUT I feel a connection with Lilly already. The only down side was it was over way to soon. Lilly is excited and passionate about music and teaching. I expect to be making beautiful music some time soon.
Nicole (7) is loving her lessons. Lilly is great at teaching young people the basics and inspiring confidence.
My kids really enjoy their lesson with Lily. She is very chilled out, and knows how to charm kids and help them focus during the lessons.
I had my first piano class last week. Lilly was great, talented and patient. I am very much looking forward for my next class!
Lilly is fantastic! I have enjoyed my first three lessons thoroughly!
Brilliant! Just as skilled, kind, fun and patient teaching Piano as she is with the flute. My 5 year old son actually listened and is excited for his next lesson!
I'm an adult and this was my first piano lesson ever. Lilly was great, informative and patient.
Lilly is clearly really talented and passionate about music. She is also a great teacher. After just 1 lesson my daughter already adores her. Would thoroughly recommend
Tavan Music Academy
I teach the Piano to beginners and the Flute to beginners-advanced level students. I also participate in their summer group camps, teaching groups of participants harmonizing, composition, and overall music theory
At Noteworthy I act as a music teacher in group piano classes. Following the curriculum set forth by Noteworthy, I teach groups of children in different ages to play the piano. The books used for the classes are the Alfred children's and adolescent's series. I have the opportunity to go to community centers and work with children in a group setting. Each child gets a portion of time during class where they play their piece and get critiques and lessons based on where they are on their lessons.
Work with special needs children and teach them functional, communication, learning, and music skills.
Focusing on student needs and preferences on style of teaching and learning materials has been a huge part of the teaching process for me. Have learned to cater to different ages of students, through different teaching styles, and practices. I use my own style of teaching and supplement it with other materials such as adults all in one packaged books as well as books like piano adventures and Trevor Wye.
