TESTIMONIALS

My name is Kevin Xu, Junior student in Syosset high school of New York. I followed Ms. Lee to learn cello when I was 8 years old. I won many international competitions, American prestige, All State, All Eastern and All National. All the achievements I had will absolutely thanks to my teacher Ms. Lee. She is the best teacher I have ever seen before. 


First, she is a very responsible teacher, and care about student very much. she took great energy and effort on me, from every lesson to finding a good quality of cello, from every competition she choose for me to finding a best accompanist. she always teach me patiently and strictly with high standards, she never give up me until I reached the goal. 


Secondly, She concentrates on fundamental skills. Because She gave me a very solid basic training constantly, also she has a very efficient and effective teaching method, so my skill improved dramatically. I even took relatively less time to practice but still got great results. 


In a word, I’m so grateful to Ms. Lee. Her professional dedication impressed me a lot. So I’m strongly recommend Ms. Lee as a cello teacher for everyone!
