Introduction: I am a professional Musician/👩🏻‍🏫Educator/👩🏻‍💻Entrepreneur/💡Concert & Event Producer. I'm a passionate, energetic, humorous, patient cello instructor. I achieved my Bachelor of Music degree at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing China in 2012. Master of Music degree at Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Music in 2014. Additionally, I received a Professional Studies Diploma at The New School’s Mannes School of Music in 2016. I am currently working as the principal cellist of the Asian Cultural Symphony of the USA. The previous principal cellist of the New York International Symphony Orchestra, The International Chamber Orchestra of America, North America Asian Performing Arts Association Orchestra, New England Repertory Orchestra, and Boston University Symphony Orchestra. I presented and produced my personal charity concert by my own company named American International Art Center at Weill Recital Hall of Carnegie Hall on September 29th, 2017 as a cellist solo with piano for classic pieces and trio with different classical instruments and Chinese traditional instruments erhu and pipa for the world premiere and the America Premiere Chinese new pieces.

We are very lucky to know and have Ms. Lu to teach our daughter the piano lesson. She is skilled, serious, patient, joyful and fun. Our daughter has no prior piano experience but immediately fall in love with the instrument and teacher Lu. Her teaching method is thorough and instructive, which helps build a solid foundation for kids to develop their interests and skills in playing piano. We would certainly recommend her to any one who wants to learn piano.

I have been learning with Meixu for three years. Before Covid I have lesson at her studio, starting from Covid till now we have been doing Zoom lessons. Surprisingly it turned out really well. I usually take lesson with her after work during the weekdays, she is very flexible for the timeframe. We even becomes friends after learning cello from her. Hope I can watch her concert someday!

Meixu's passions for cello performance and variety of music genres are inspirational for her students. She brings her professionalism, charisma and kindness to every lesson. She teaches proper cello technique, musicality, mixed in with music theory/history and ideas on how to shine on the concert stage. Meixu is an all-around wonderful teacher, and I highly recommend her!

Meixu is a very professional musician and cello instructor. I want to learning cello since I was a little girl. Now finally I have the chance to learn it with her. She gave me a very detail and specific instructions as a beginner. She teach piano as well, so I’m thinking about having her teaching my daughter piano. So maybe someday we can play as a duet for family during the holiday season. Highly recommend her!
