My son, Dayo has been taking piano lessons with Mrs Ding since age 5yrs. He is now almost 16.  It is a testament to her dedication and professionalism that he has remained with her.

She is very experienced and  knowledgable. At age 5, she very quickly put him at ease, laying  a good foundation to develop the right skill/ technique to play the piano correctly.

Lilin is very thorough, kind and patient with the children and tailors the lessons to their level, so they understand what is being taught. She can be firm when necessary ensuring the children remain focused and practice regularly. Overall she makes the lessons fun  and she nurtures and instils a passion for music in them. We are very grateful to Lilin for her dedication in teaching our son, to the extent that he chose to play the piano for his Music GCSE

We highly recommend her.
