Overview

Hello!

I am a 2014 graduate of the University of Central Florida with a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Development and Education. I have completed 2 internships, both in 1st grade, then taught Kindergarten in Seminole county Schools for one year and have since discovered my love for teaching in one-on-one situations. I believe that building relationships is an important and integral part of effective teaching, and the learning stems from that.

I have a passion for music, and have been playing flute since 2003, piano since 1998, and guitar since 2006. I played the flute throughout middle and high school, and I continue playing for weddings, holiday performances, etc. to this day. I have consistently auditioned for All-County performances all throughout middle and high school with flute, and have received top positions.

I have been playing piano since 1998, taken piano lessons for 7 years, and performed in several recitals.

I have taught myself guitar and ukulele and have performed in a few festivals and coffee shops around Orlando. When I was teaching, I often brought my instruments with me to play for my kindergarten class!

I've also enjoyed venturing into the world of graphic/web design, and since Fall 2015, have been running my own tiny little design business at lilyliseno.com. I taught myself how to do some basic coding using HTML and CSS, and how to use adobe photoshop and illustrator to create website designs, social media graphics, logos, flyers, and t-shirt designs.

**TEACHING STYLE**

My teaching style is laid back and casual in nature. I believe the most productive learning comes through relationships, trust, and fun! I strive in cozy environments and hope to create a welcoming space for our lesson time. (Check out my pictures to see my lesson space!)

I work from home doing graphic and web design, so I am very flexible and will work around your schedule.

**LESSON DETAILS**

Piano lessons will be held in my home in Orlando. If you are a beginning piano student you will need to purchase your own book (about $5 on amazon), and notebook in order for me to write down what to practice for the following week.

Flute lessons will be held in my house in Orlando or online (via TakLessons Classroom, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, or Skype). You will need to have your own flute for lessons and practice. I will also have you purchase a fairly cheap lesson book on amazon (book will be depending on your skill level) and suggest having a notebook so I can write down what you need to practice for the following week.

Guitar or Ukulele lessons will be held in my house or online (via TakLessons Classroom, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, or Skype). You will need to have your own instrument available for lessons and practice. Depending on your age/skill level, I may have you purchase a fairly cheap guitar lesson book on amazon. I also suggest having a notebook in order for me to write down what to practice for the following week. I do not require books/notebooks for ukulele, everything we need will be a free print out (chord sheet, strumming patterns, songs).

We had some technical difficulties on our end but Lilly worked with it until we got it sorted. She helped my daughter to get started as a brand new student and she is excited to learn.

I am enjoying my lessons with Lily. She is friendly, very easy to understand and has good knowledge to share. Knowing I have a lesson to get ready for, keeps me motivated to learn.
