I am a professional musician and educator with over 15 years of teaching experience. My students have won music competitions and scholarships both nationally and internationally. I approach each student as a unique and promising artist. I help them set individual goals, then plan and prepare lesson materials tailored for what he or she intends to achieve. I encourage them to work hard, dream big, and enjoy the rewards of learning and performing music.

Lipeng is a great violin teacher. She is efficient and get to the point. She also has very good ears. She is able to catch out of tune notes for my son. She helped my son for his recital pieces of music, and she was very helpful.

Lipeng Chen is an excellent music teacher. She is professional and efficient,
yet kind and cheerful. I am quite certain she will help me to gain proficiency

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.
