About Lilia

Lilia graduated from music school in Riga, Latvia and gave piano and music lessons to children before moving to the United States. Lilia loves working with children and believes that music can greatly enhance their lives. Other than music and piano, she has also taught math and summer school to children aged 6 to 10. She is very patient and creative, using games and playful activities to teach children and offer a fun environment for learning. Lilia has a husband, two grown sons and 3 grandsons. Her hobbies include singing, dancing, traveling, cooking. After having a break from teaching music to be a software engineer for a several years, Lilia is very excited to have returned in 2007 to her love of teaching music at The Music Place.

Teaching Style

Lilia’s teaching style promotes kids to love music, to feel and understand the music depth and feel comfortable with music. She pays constant attention for the development of sight-reading skills.

After almost 7 years with The Music Place, we have regretfully decided to discontinue Arya's piano lessons. Arya has learnt so much during these years from our beloved Ms Lilia. High school is very demanding and with all the various clubs and electives he has taken this year, he is unable to focus on piano. We will always cherish all that The Music Place has given Arya in terms of knowledge, focus, confidence and maturity. Our best wishes to all of you, especially to our dear teacher Ms Lilia.

Actual Customer Testimonials:

"We have recommended to many of our friends. We love the place. It has totally helped our daughter to not only know the notes but to truly have fun with them! We love the teacher(s) and wish them all the very best. - " -- Happy parents

"Our daughter, Melissa, loves her music class, and she looks forward to the recitals. She's made friends and become more confident. We'd recommend the Music Place to anyone. -- Melissa's parents, Kathy & Matt, Los Gatos" .

I tell everyone who will listen about the amazing introduction to music that our daughter is getting with the Music Place. People are always amazed when a 3-year old explains that she played an oboe last week and is going to play a piccolo next week! Most importantly, our daughter can't wait for music class & asks to go every day. -- The Pace Family
