Hi there!
I am really excited that you've decided to take music lessons and are here on my page looking for an awesome teacher. I have lots of experience in music and I can't wait to teach it to someone else, whether they're a kid or an adult.

Currently I am attending graduate school for a Masters in Global Medicine so I can save the world later ;). I've spent a lot of time 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 helping out with the university orchestra.

Started music at a young age of 8, with my first instrument being the Flute followed by the Piano. Because I began music with a teacher who was studying music academically, I have a very strong background in theory, technique, and tone. At the same time, I really think its all about having fun and loving what you play/learn.

I have taught adults and children so I do 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!

Cheers,
Lilli

At Noteworthy I act as a music teacher in group piano classes.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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
