About Aleena W.

Teaching is absolutely one of the most rewarding activities I've ever been involved in. I've been teaching piano and art for more than 13 years and I've been associated with TakeLessons for 11 of those years in 3 different cities. I teach beginning piano and all levels of painting and drawing remotely,

My inital training in music was classical based and included music theory. However I'm accomplished in all genres due to my private training and experience. I've been composing and performing a variety of genres since 1998.

Music improves math and other cognitive skills. Einstein used the violin to relax and there are scientific studies correlating brain development with the acquisition of music skills.

I'm an encouraging and flexible teacher. I provide lessons based on every student's individualized abilities and goals. I pride myself on my ability to create an enjoyable experience for all of my students.

My most memorable rewards in teaching are:

****A student who came to me as a beginner and learned Fur Elise in less than 1 and 1/2 year(s) of lessons.

****One of my students was a 16 year old virtuoso in classical guitar. He came to me because he never learned how to sight read. Within 6 months he was writing his own music and decided to change his specialty from guitar to piano.

*****Another one of my students was dyslexic and he was told he would never be able to read music but within a few months he was reading music and composing it.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals! I encourage anyone at aniy age who is interested in learning to begin lessons with the knowledge that they can eventually create any kind of art or music they desire.

I hope to have an opportunity to meet you soon and I encourage you to ask any questions you have!!!

Aleena has been an amazing teacher for my son Isaac. Her level of
patience, knowledge and understanding with the ability to translate that in
a way that he can easily understand, I think is amazing.

Aleena is an amazing piano instructor.. She has truly been a blessing to me abd my daughter's life and teaching her how to play all types of music including classical music and her favorite song, "Fur Elise!" Aleena goes over and beyond to make sure her students are the "best of the best" and will not let them settle for anything less than that! I would recommend her to anyone who has a desire or passion for playing the piano and who loves the general aspect of music.. Aleena is patient, understanding, caring to all of her students and is always willing to help them reach their ultimate goals! Thanks so much for being an inspiration to me and my daughter and for helping her to create her musical path and finding a creative niche that she enjoys and wishes to pursue!

Aleena had taught my daughter more in the last six months than the previous teacher she had for two years. She's patient and thorough. We love her!
