Hello, I'm Linda! I'm currently a graduate student at The Juilliard School. I have been teaching privately for over a decade now and have experience with students of all ages and levels. I design the lessons with your goals as a learner in mind! I specialize in classical music but I am comfortable teaching an array of other genres as well. My priority as a teacher is to get you set up technically, as well as proficient in music theory so that you can go all the places you want to go with your music!

About Linda R.

Notable past performances include appearances with Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra, Royal Conservatory Orchestra, and Xinghai Philharmonic Orchestra; and performances in North America, Asia and Europe.

Born in Tokyo, Linda began learning the piano at the age of seven in Shanghai after returning to the country.

When I started with Linda I hadn't had a piano lesson in almost forty years. In a short time she had me playing with more confidence and at a far higher level than I had ever achieved before. Linda is a phenomenal performer and a gifted teacher. Anyone at any level would be lucky to work with her.

I consider myself very fortunate to have found Linda when I took up piano after a 50 year hiatus. She brought enthusiasm, patience and profound musical knowledge to each lesson. I would be with her still if Julliard hadn’t called her to Manhattan. Six stars!
