He gives an specific syllabus to his students about the materials needed to be learned in each level of violin performance. also this gives them a very clear clue about what is expected to be mastered in each level. so this way students can feel success and see the bright path to proficiency in Violin. for intermediate levels he usually uses kaiser etudes, sonatas and concertos which are recommended for this level. in the advanced level, students start to learn Bach sonatas and partitas, plus working on valuable etude books like Kruetzer or Rode,also concertos will be offered to students based on their skills and level of advancement in this level of teaching.

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.
