Excellent teacher who has been training my daughter in classical piano for the past 3 years. Anahit has an incredibly vast knowledge of piano repertoire, technique and performance. She has gotten my daughter active in the Certificate of Merit program of California and understands how to properly prepare students to achieve high marks in all aspects of piano study. Highly recommended!

I have been taking piano lessons with Anahit for 2,5 years. I was recommended by an acquaintance, whose technique I admired and I also saw the improvement immediately after she started taking classes with Anahit. I am so glad I made the decision to commit full time and let Anahit work her magic. She has certainly taken me to new levels of knowledge, skill and technique. If anyone is serious about playing the piano, especially as a career, look no further. Aside being a master of her craft, she is kind, professional and polite. I highly recommend her!

Anahit is an amazing piano instructor. She instills a felling of confidence in students. She also has a very extensive repertoire that almost seems endless. I would recommend her to anyone of any age that wants to learn how to play the piano. She teaches from the basics to very advanced levels. She is also very committed to her job, and rarely misses lessons. Her lessons are very professional and private.

I was recommended to take lessons with Anahit Sevoyan from a colleague and from the first class I understood why he was so excited and confident about her as a professional instructor. She is a wonderful pianist and when taking lessons, one must have someone to look up to. I went from being a mediocre, hopeless amateur to seeing significant change in my technique and have to admit, for the first time I am confident in pursuing music professionally. Aside from her ability to teach and deliver the material, she is pleasant, punctual and very kind. She knows the repertoire and different musical styles, gives me and other students insight into teaching as well as performing. She truly brings out the best in her students. I highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about learning to play the piano and especially, thinking of pursuing it as a career.

Anahit is an incredible piano teacher! She is highly qualified and her repertoire is seemingly endless. Given her vast understanding of a wide range of musical forms she is able to hone into exactly what the student is missing and explain how to achieve it. Her vast catalogue of repertoire allows Anahit to guide the student through a variety pieces which all build upon each other in a meaningful way. If you are looking for a classical piano education, I can't imagine a better teacher than Anahit.
