Music is the food for the soul. It inspires and influences people whether they are musicians or not. I started playing the piano when I was 10. My parents took me for piano lessons to introduce me to music and see whether I’d like it. Well, I loved it! I have been playing since then and music has become part of my life. I have been taking piano lessons with 3 different private instructors. My recent private piano teacher is a student of Iran’s most well-known pianist and composer, Emanuel Malek Aslanian. My focus area is classical piano music. Some of my favorite composers include Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, Mozart, Schubert and Bach. However, I enjoy music from all over the globe and love discovering new musical styles and pieces I can play ! I have been teaching piano for over 6 years. I love teaching and I love piano. I have been fortunate enough to combine these two to be able to create a loving and inspiring environment for my students to learn and discover their talents. I also love working with people of different age groups. When I teach, I always learn a lot from my students and I always find so much excitement in working with people. As for my education, I have a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from UCSD. The cool thing is that music and Mathematics are totally related. Music Theorists often use mathematics to understand music. I have realized my educational background has helped me to understand music more in depth and improve my technical piano playing skills. I am originally Persian. I speak both English and Farsi. I am really delighted and look forward to meeting you. *** Lesson Details *** I give a lot of importance to getting to know the students. Each student has different goals and plans in mind that knowing them makes the lessons so much more interesting, motivating and interactive. Students are in a road to discovery. I try to do my best in helping them in this path of discovery by giving them the tools they need which are learning the techniques and having fun and enjoying the art of playing the piano. There is always so much joy and excitement in learning to play a new piece. I hope everyone can experience this. *** Studio Equipment *** Living Room, piano *** Travel Equipment *** A piano is required at the location. *** Specialties *** Classical music is my specialization. However, I always look for students' talents and interests when teaching them.

Noodle says

Takelessons started as a platform to for music teachers, and is still strongest on that front. It provides tutors with organizational software designed to help track lessons, and so probably attracts more tech-friendly, highly organized tutors. No vetting or training is provided for tutors, so we highly recommend that you use their ratings and reviews when selecting a tutor.

TakeLessons says

Success in learning often depends on finding the right teacher; someone that not only has expertise in the subject, but also knows how to inspire. The teaching style that works for one student may not work for another. As a parent or student, how do you find the right match? As a teacher, how do you find new students that fit your style? TakeLessons bridges this gap.
