I want to inspire my students of all ages to reach their potential as musicians. I work with my students on sheet reading, key and time signatures, developing an understanding of harmonic and tonal concepts, and proper technique. My lessons are tailored to the student’s interests, goals and skill level.

About Lilan

Lilan is an excellent piano instructor with her professional skills and years of playing experience. She provided me with practical guidance on my playing skills as well as the emotion in the performance with her on-stage performance experience. She is also a responsible instructor. She will play the chapter by herself to let me better understand the performance. Thanks to her professional instructions and patience, my playing skills have been improved a lot. I will recommend Lilan to everyone who would like to expect an improvement on their playing skills as well as receiving great instruction experience.

I cannot recommend Lilan highly enough as a piano teacher. She is calm, patient, and dedicated in making sure you learn both the basics of piano and intricacies of any piece you want to play. She is also an excellent pianist - check out her videos on this page! Thanks, Lilan!

I believe that everyone has their own unique voice and she wants to help find that voice. Singing is a beautiful experience that enriches the soul. It motivates people to find their best possible selves. It is exciting, fun and brings happiness to all. I want to share this joy with everyone and hopes you will join me on this journey to find the beauty of music. I received my Bachelors of Music in Vocal Performance from Boston Conservatory and her Masters of Music in Voice and Opera Performance from Northwestern University.

"Jason is a professional and exceptional.

With his ability to teach guitar, drums, keyboard, and also songwriting, my hyper 5 year old is never board. I'm not interested right now in pushing one instrument over the other. I just want her to be "exposed" to different instruments, develop an ear for music, see how she can take her lyrics (budding songwriter, with her singing her day all the time), and enhance it with an instrument. Jason can do all that, because he has the knowledge, but he's also very FLEXIBLE and can easily transition from one insturment and teaching method to another, depending on where a young student's mind and interests take them in any given moment.

Learning to play traditionally/classically, slowly, methodically, step-by-step, learning formal music theory, doing drills and so forth is awesome, and Jason can do that. However, if you want to learn to play for fun, and begin jamming sooner than later...he's definately your man."

With his upbeat and collaborative approach, Gary really connected with our son and worked efficiently and constructively to help him improve. Gary has a wealth of advanced music and performance knowledge - but he also has the ability to make the basics fun. We miss you, Gary!"

He is patient and encouraging. He affords his students more than just how-to's - he asks of them to truly connect with the instrument they want to learn. He is well-worth your investment as he will truly invest in you."
