I've had the privilege of crossing paths with Lulu V. 20 years ago. It started off with a singing lesson. I've learned that she has an exceptional work ethic and passion for the life that music provides. She taught me that Music is the Master (and don't you forget that!) for music has no tolerance for arrogance.
There also is not just ONE category where you can place her, 'cause she is a teacher for piano, a vocal coach, an arranger for symphony orchestras, Musical Director for any event and has a Very soft spot for working with Big Bands.
I recently moved to Canada, and sadly our lesson had to end. But the knowledge she shared will remain. Thanks Lulu.

Have you ever heard folks expressing regret that they never continued their music lessons? Few students aspire to become concert pianists and unfortunately gave up as they never learned how to develop their skills to interpret modern music. Classical Music gives you the best technique but so many want to bridge their studies & be able to play current (pop) music & develop how to read band scores; plus develop playing by ear & improvising skills. Lulu excels in developing you as a Classical pianist or/and helping you transition as a modern pianist.

Lulu is one of the nicest and talented teachers I can recommend. She is not only an accredited teacher but has the experience of working as a professional pianist, arranger & orchestrator in the South African Music Industry. As a professional pianist I'm often asked if I teach. I have worked in the music industry & the past 20 years I've worked in the US as a music director in churches. I am constantly approached by folks wanting to become more proficient players & singers. In South Africa I would always refer them to Lulu. She worked with so many singers preparing them for cabaret, corporate launches & worked with numerous choirs. Personally I would always choose someone that has vast experience in the music industry as the person to develop my talents.

I am so happy to now recommend Lulu to the Los Angeles area. I have friends that tour with very well artists or work professionally in Broadway shows but find their fees for private instruction quite absorbitant. With Lulu you're getting years of experience at a very affordable rate.

When choosing a dentist I've found that asking friends in the medical industry would give me the best possible person. Likewise as a seasoned professional musician, I highly recommend choosing Lulu - you will never regret your decision!
