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 ukulele since 2011. I have also played guitar off an on for the past 10 years.

**FLUTE**

I played the flute throughout middle and high school, and I continue playing for weddings, holiday performances, church functions, 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.

**PIANO**

I have been playing piano since 1998, taken piano lessons for 7 years, and performed in several recitals. Now I mostly play for fun. My favorite piano songs to play are TV, Movie, and Video Game themes!

**UKULELE/GUITAR**

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 write music as well with my twin sister - we enjoy writing electronic/indie/pop music together.

I've also enjoyed venturing into the world of graphic design, and since Fall 2015, have been running my own tiny little design business with a few clients here and there. I've taught myself how to use adobe photoshop and illustrator to create social media graphics, logos, flyers, and t-shirt designs.

I currently work from home doing graphic design as well as teaching music lessons.

**LOCATION**

I am located in College Park near downtown Orlando.

**TEACHING STYLE**

My teaching style is laidback and casual in nature. I believe the most productive learning comes through relationships, trust, and fun! My philosophy is to focus on you. What kind of music do you enjoy and what do you need to get the most out of your lessons? I strive in cozy, safe feeling environments and hope to create a welcoming space for our lesson time. (Check out my pictures to see my lesson space!)

I see myself as a facilitator - I will teach you the foundations of your chosen instrument and what you need to know I will be by your side to encourage and help you. But... you will put in most of the work! You get out of lessons what you put into them - for this reason I highly encourage daily practice! Even if it is just 5-10 minutes a day.

I also hold a recital once or twice a year so that you have the opportunity to perform and show off your skill and everything you have learned.

**LESSON DETAILS**

Piano lessons will be held in my home in Orlando (college park). I do require a purchase of a piano book depending on your skill level (about $5-10 on amazon), and notebook in order for me to write down what to practice for the following week. If I am traveling to you, you will need to have a piano or keyboard available for lessons.

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.

Ukulele lessons will be held in my house or online (via TakeLessons Classroom, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, or Skype). You will need to have your own instrument available for lessons and practice. I do require purchase of lesson books that you can get fairly cheap on amazon. I also suggest having a notebook in order for me to write down what to practice for the following week.

**CANCELLATION POLICIES**

I require 24 hours notice if you need to cancel a lesson (with the exception of illness). Otherwise, you will be charged the regular lesson fee.

**MORE ABOUT ME!**
Some of my hobbies include writing/playing music, graphic design, traveling, hiking, camping, writing, painting, gardening.

I love my cat, my husband, coffee, food, Netflix, relaxing at home, going on crazy adventures, the beach, the mountains, and tacos!

Ms lily, Is a nice instructor (Teacher) to me. I am at the beginning. She take the extra mile if u donot understand..Example she will write it down, explain it to me, for i can understand it & video it & play it on the piano for me or to whom ever, for you to catch the lesson. I am a person that you have to show me more than to tell me about it.I thank God for allowing her to be my teacher. Ms. Wanda

As a basic instructor is fine. To learn the sounds and each part of the ukulele, honestly you can pay less(free) by watching an instructor in YouTube. If you want the face to face interaction then ok, but is not necessary to sharpen your skills.

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.

Levels Taught:
Beginner

Not only will you learn how to play your favorite songs on ukulele, but I will also teach you how to read music - all in a laid back and casual environment! I've been playing ukulele since 2012 and love to share my love of this happy instrument and my love of music with others. I strive in cozy spaces and work to create a homey and welcoming place for my students.
