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.
