*** Lesson Details ***
Learning violin will be fun and rewarding for my students.

My teaching method is from The Juilliard School of Music, lessons are specifically designed to fit individual students age, background, strength and personality. In my classes, not only students are taught how to play the violin, they are also taught ear training, sight-reading, music theory, and performance skills; Most important, students are also taught self-confidence, discipline, appreciation of the arts, and the pride that comes from a job well done.

Every year, my students have the opportunity to perform in different concert settings, participate in our annual summer concerts, take national music exams, and audition with many orchestras and music schools.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The studio lessons are taught in a quiet and comfy home music studio. The room includes a piano, violins, music stands, flat screen TV. Seating for parent/family member is also available.

*** Specialties ***
My teaching method is mainly following The Juilliard School of Music, and I also combine it with the Suzuki method, especially for younger students.

I improved my violin playing a lot since I took lessons with Lucy last month. I know learning to play violin is hard but with a good teacher you will improve a lot more faster than you expected.

I really appreciate Lucy Lu, my violin teacher. she is what one would expect for a violin teacher specially if you're like me 68 years and no experience whatsoever with the instrument. Had I stayed in Los Angeles, I see no problem in continuing taking lessons from her because I know that sooner or later, I would learn despite my busy schedule as a tax accountant. Thank you Lucy. I will miss you.

Lucy is a great teacher

I have been taking lessons with Lucy for about 6 months now and she has been an amazing teacher. She is very patient and professional. She has taught me quite a bit in regards to playing the violin. If I hadn't moved I would still be taking lessons with Lucy.
