***Give the gift of music to someone you love this season!

I've been teaching piano and art for more than 9 years and I've been associated with TakeLessons for 7 of those years in 2 different cities. I teach beginning and intermediate piano as well as art students at my studio.

Teaching is a very rewarding experience.
Although my training was in classical music, I currently compose and perform a variety of genres besides classical.
I also create multi-media 2-dimensional art as well as painting with acrylic and oil; drawing as well.

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 because every student is different and requires their own individualized lesson plan.
I have a policy to always communicate with my students and parents of students who are children.

****One of my students was a 16 years 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 he was reading music and within a few months he was writing it himself.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals! I encourage anyone who is interested in learning to begin lessons with the knowledge that they can eventually create any kind of art they desire.
I continue to perform and create visual art which enables me to sharpen and maintain my skills.

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!
