About Lydia L.

I have experience teaching percussion to children from preschool through adults in their early thirties. I have recently graduated with a master’s degree in performance from the Longy School of Music of Bard College, where I had a two-year timpani assistantship to perform with the orchestra, had intense marimba and mallet training, along with drum set, and various orchestral percussion instruments.

For fun, I enjoy hand-drumming for some of the Boston Ballet’s modern dance classes. My passion and enthusiasm to share my knowledge of percussion is what makes me a great candidate for this position.

Learning a percussion instrument should be a balance of hard work and fun. I have a strong passion for teaching because I have been lucky enough to have had great music teachers. I feel that teaching and sharing music with others is the most important thing that a musician can do. My students produce great results, each overcoming their own set of obstacles and completing goals set specifically for their musical development. I hope to engage students in a structured yet fun and interactive environment in which they can approach any drum, marimba, triangle, tambourine, bicycle horn, cymbal, timpani, etc. in a confident manner to make the most of their learning experience.

Lydia was very welcoming and kind, and put me at ease during our first lesson. She knew I wanted to work on mallet percussion, and had a lesson plan ready for me on the marimba. She moved at a pace that worked for me, and I already feel as though I have learned some basics. I'm excited to continue my lessons with her!

Lydia's teaching style is fantastic! As an older learner, she was very patient and understanding with me while still helping me reach my goals. She taught me many different ways of playing and different styles. It is a pleasure to be taught by such a remarkable percussionist!

My work as a percussion accompanist for the Boston Ballet School has been put on hold due to the Coronavirus. I loved every minute that I spent providing live music for dance classes and hope to be back at it again soon!
