I recently had my first lesson with Ardalan and it was wonderful. In fact amazing in a certain way. I merely did not know what to expect. However, thorough and exact, he showed an interest in me obtaining my goal. I could tell he loves teaching/playing the violin as I do. He carefully answered my questions. Made me feel very comfortable in refreshing my skills and techniques. On my journey with this teacher, I am confident I will get to where I want to go.

Ardalan is extremely talented with dealing with young children. We have gone for just a few lessons and my sun has learnt more that he learnt for 4 months with a different teacher. We feel blessed to have met him. We appreciate that he checks with the student during the week to make sure student is doing the right thing. Would recommend him any time.

Ardalan is as good as they come. He knows exactly where my daughter is hung up and is able to focus on it like a laser

Very understanding instructor. My daughter (age 12) is moving along at a nice comfortable rate with dramatic improvements already taking shape! I can recommend Ardalan highly for beginners although, from the fragments that I've heard of Ardalan's own playing, I suspect he's equally effective for advanced students.
