“You have the perfect temperament for teaching. It is wonderful to watch you work with the kids. The kids never have to be told to practice because they love you so much. My parents came from Pennsylvania and my brother came from Asia to watch your student recital, and they are amazed at how well your students do. I am too.”

On seeing how Lily Yeh teaches her daughter during a lesson: "You are a very good teacher. You break down the music into parts so that it is easy for children to absorb.

We are so happy to see the change," mother of a 6.5 year old.
