My first lesson was great. She helped me gain a lot of confidence as to whether or not I could learn to play. Can't wait until my next lesson

Lydia helped rekindle my daughters' desire for harp. They were progressing so slowly with their previous instructor and were becoming bored. They are both very excited to have Lydia.

Lydia is a great instructor. I am a beginning student and I think l I learned a lot in the first session. I really enjoyed the lesson. She has inspired me to learn to play the harp and to practice every day. I am looking forward to my next lesson. I would recommend Lydia to any prospective student..

As a adult leaner, I want to say that she is patient, easy to understand and relates well to new people. A good teacher who likes sharing knowledge.

Lydia taught my daughter both harp and piano for 8 years. She is an excellent teacher. I could not have asked for better. Lydia is extremely musical, and is professional, yet down-to-earth, kind and friendly. She is very patient and has pleasant to be around. She has recorded CD's of her harp music, has played with orchestras, and has attended many music study programs. Her musical ability is superior and she LOVES to share her the joy of playing both harp and piano to others. Lydia is also flexible with the pieces she teaches. She is very good at teaching the classical pieces and exercises, but also can teach pop and other genres. She has two recitals a year which are in a relaxed atmosphere but still give the student the performance experience. GREAT TEACHER!
