About

Ardalan delivers an exceptional lesson experience and ranks in the top 15% of our teachers nationwide.
Teaches students:
Ages 5+ and special needs

Teaching since:
1998

Five reasons why my lessons can be a unique experience for you.... if, and only if:
1- You are looking for a professionally trained performing artist and instructor (with more than 25 years of experience teaching ranging from beginner toddlers at home to advanced musicians in academic studio setting) who is fun to work with and learn from.
2- You look for an individualized approach tailored to your musical needs (Piano Technique, sight-singing, Score reading, Theory, Aural skills).
3- You or your child are busy and want to make the best of your time learning or practicing and therefore need a well-disciplined teacher who can match your schedule; I have a strong Time Management & Follow up System for the lessons. (My philosophy specially for beginners : If it is not measurable , it is not done the right way. )
4- You actively and carefully read the details (of education and teaching experience) of instructors profile and ask for reviews because you care enough for your time and money to know the difference between a true performing artist (with Master Degree in Music from the Nation's top-ranked music school) versus another "teacher" who has played in their high-school band, and teaches 10 instruments since last month while working on his BA! (Profile pictures and "statements" can always look good though...!)
5- You prefer to have the flexibility of receiving private (or group) lessons in your own home, or you prefer to receive lessons in a studio setting ( I can offer either one).

While I was at Indiana University, I had the great fortune of studying with Ardalan! He was an incredibly patient teacher who was able to cater to what I needed individually. He was able to impart a great deal of knowledge and I couldn't recommend him enough! Thank you so much for all you have taught me Ardalan.

I took piano lessons with Ardalan for quite a while. He’s knowledgeable, patient and caring. He is experienced working with both adults and children and modifies his approach to meet each student’s needs. I had a bad experience learning music when I was a child and was reluctant to take lessons as an adult. Ardalan definitely helped me gain that confidence back and feel that I could actually enjoy the music while learning it. Besides his teaching skills, Ardalan is a wonderful artist and anyone who takes a class with him will look forward to each session and learn a lot from him.

I had piano lessons with Ardalan. His talent in playing piano along with his broad knowledge in music had made him a very professional and trustworthy teacher. Moreover, Ardalan is a Medical Doctor and always teaches you how to play piano to not hurt muscles and joints which is very important for beginner players who just started to form their style. He is kind and takes time to design the best teaching program which suites you the best. However, he is serious about the exercises you have to do during the week. Also, he is very organized, he is on time and never cancels the classes and doesn't allow you to cancel the class because of not practicing :)
