Helen G Liu


With a teaching experience that spans more than 20 years in various states, Dr. Helen Liu’s philosophy stems from her education in performance-based teaching and innovative teaching methods. Lessons will be customized to meet where the student is at and to propel them forward with mindful learning and practice habits with the ultimate goal of joyful music-making. Much of the teaching is one-on-one, but requests for chamber music coaching are welcome, as well as coaching group sectionals, small string group training, and giving masterclasses. Please reach out if you are interested in studying with me!

During this new normal, I am only accepting in-person private lessons at my home if you are fully vaccinated. Virtual lessons via Facetime or Zoom are still a good option! Contact me for rates and to learn how to make music from the comfort of your own home.

Private Studio

Prospective Students

All levels are welcome. A majority of the lessons will be focused on fundamentals to ensure each student’s set of “hard skills” will enable him/her to play advanced repertoire with ease.

Virtual Platforms and Fees

All lessons will be conducted remotely via FaceTime or Zoom for 45- or 60- min. lessons once per week. Additional lessons are available on a case-by-case basis. Lesson fees are payable by cash, check, or Venmo in the first lesson each quarter (8 lessons), or in advance. No refund for lesson cancellations. I reserve the right to end the lesson at any time. Students must use their own instrument, a practice log or notebook, any instructional materials (music, tuner, metronome), and a recording device to every lesson. The student’s progress is based on a positive and pleasant disposition, supportive environment and the will to succeed for as long as we work together.
