Music Director of the Chicago Philharmonia Orchestra since 1985, Farobag has also served as Managing Director of the University of Chicago Performing Artists Series from 1989 through 2002 and principal conductor of its resident professional ensembles. A skilled interpreter of Baroque literature as well, Farobag continues in his capacity as Artistic Advisor to the Baroque Masterplayers, a virtuoso ensemble that concatenates period performance techniques with modern instruments thus creating a unique voice within the realm of 17th and 18th- century repertoire.
A double graduate of the Eastman School of Music and the University of Rochester, Farobag studied under Anastasia Jempelis, a pioneer of Suzuki violin pedagogy in the United States. In addition to the Suzuki curriculum, he is also associated with the Royal Conservatory Music Development Program that sets a national standard of musical achievement in various fields.
Befitting his penchant for encouraging artistic interest amongst younger members of his community, Farobag is also the principal conductor of the Zoroastrian Symphony Orchestra that offers a unique mixture of young and seasoned professionals sitting side-by-side in a strictly professional setting. Since the year 2000, the ZSO has staged highly successful performances at various venues in Houston, Chicago, and Toronto.
Having also taken graduate-level coursework in educational psychology, mathematics, and philosophy at the University of Chicago, Farobag offers tutelage in various areas of elementary and secondary education as well as in SAT, ACT and GRE test preparation.
Additionally, as a certified Reiki Master, therapeutic and/or educational sessions are also extended to those who may be inclined to alternative healing techniques.
*** Lesson Details ***
Sheer technique is necessary but insufficient to play an instrument well. Aural skills, that include the study of functional tonality and voice-leading are important factors that impart musicality. This is of great import if the prospective musician wants the audience to truly enjoy his or her performance !
Whether it be the 3 Rs or preparation in the performing arts, a remarkable instructor must go well beyond the subject matter at hand and help imbue the student with a spirit of wonder that, in due time, will foster enthusiasm necessary for excellence.
A child emulates and learns to communicate in his or her mother-tongue through a supporting and nurturing environment. Likewise, a student needs to be sufficiently motivated to embrace learning in a familiar supportive manner.
*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lesson take place in the living room. Driveway parking. No pets.

None; I do expect a reasonably good piano / keyboard at a student's home.

I started teaching sports and fitness in my final semester at Cal State Northridge. I have worked with students with special needs. I am certified in the Mandt System, giving me a foundation to work with anyone!
Meditation, Reiki, Yoga
From the first moment I stepped onto my mat, I credit my personal transformation along my own yogic journey to the great teachers who guided me along the way on my quest to my healthiest, best self and I feel that it is my mission to continue the ancient tradition by sharing the gift of yoga with others to inspire the same growth, lightness and empowerment.
I found my authentic voice while completing the 200HR RYT training at CorePower Yoga. Being a natural artist, my classes are inspired by my fun, creative spirit taught from the inside out with focus on my students individual wants, needs and goals.
I enjoy guiding power flow, vinyasa flow, deep stretch, chakra flow, meditation, prenatal yoga, and healing with the love of reiki energy! My fascination of the energetic subtle body and universal connectedness I experiences in my daily life fuels my passion to contribute to the overall well-being of the world by inspiring happiness, positivity, peace and strength in myself and others on and off the mat.
I have open availability to accommodate early morning, day, evening, and weekend lessons at students homes or outside in nature at your favorite park or beach.
