My daughter has been taking online violin lessons for the past few weeks and is loving it! Lipeng is helpful and inspires her to love what she is learning. She is very excited to show me the songs she is working on and she seems to be progressing very well from the excellent teaching she is getting. Great Instructor!

Lipeng is a truly amazing violin teacher. Experienced, knowledgeable and patient. Knows precisely what to have student work on and communicates extremely well. Just a few weeks and my bowing and tone improve a lot! Will definitely recommend her.

My daughter has been taking Lipeng’s piano lessons for a couple of weeks. She feels that she learned useful techniques and it is now less frustrating when playing. I feel the difference is that every time when I ask my daughter to practice, she is readily to play. It is evident that she is growing interest in piano. She is starting to learn to appreciate the beauty of the music she is playing.

My daughter is preparing for her Concerto Competition later this year. She just had her first violin lesson with Lipend, and learned a lot. Lipend is a knowledgeable, patient and nice teacher. I am so happy and lucky to have Lipend to help my daughter to reach her goal.

Lipeng is an amazing pianist and violinist artist herself, however she is an even more splendid teacher. She is so patient and encouraging with a adult student(I). Her technique and attention to music detail is amazing. She encourages relaxed recitals for students to gain confidence in a larger setting without pressure. my friends were impressed with my development and progress all along the classes because I had a great teacher! Would highly recommend!!!!
