Lipeng is very patient and encouraging for my beginner 11-year-old, using the video format well to demonstrate the songs and watch the student. She has been a good fit for a player who is motivated to improve but can complain a little bit about practicing everyday.

Very first lesson with Lipeng and I enjoyed it so very much. Lipeng encourages to listen to the music and then accentuate the notes to make it music, not to simply play them.

Was able to very quickly assess my skill level and provide exactly the right training to begin improving. Excellent concept communicator, and very encouraging. I learned so much so quickly that I'm really looking forward to my next lesson!

I was classically trained in the Suzuki Method but it has been some years since I've played. Mrs. Lipeng, was very patient with me and helpful. I look forward to continuing lessons with her!

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.

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!!!!

My 4 year old daughter looks forward to going to practice, Lipeng thinks ahead and knows what her student needs. I highly recommend her services . My look forward to purchasing more lessons--so my daughter may play in one of her concert.

I wish I could give Lipeng more than 5 stars. Keeping a 3 year old focused, engaged and learning is not easy. My daughter not only enjoyed her session, she was borderline possessive about Lipeng and kept on asking me if Ms. Lipeng will come back.
Looking forward a fun ride in learning piano with Lipeng.
