Mr. Bijan is the best instructor that someone can have. He's knowledgeable, passionate, and caring. I had him for cello lessons. He uses the time efficiently, and teaches you as much as possible in each lesson. I strongly recommend him.

Bijan is a great teacher for my daughter. He really knows how to be patient with young kids and helps them focus on what they need to work on with very positive feedback. Can work with individual needs for each student and help them build proper techniques in areas where they need improvement and help them bring out their strengths. I would definitely recommend him to any student.

Both my son (over a year of piano lessons) and now my daughter (just started to learn to sing) take music lessons from Mr. Bijan and they both love it. He has a calm personality and a way with kids which I think brings out the best from his students. Extremely patient and changes the pace as per the students. My son has been learning piano for 3 years and had his moments of struggle but was good to see Mr. Bijan work with him and successfully motivated him to get back on track.

Classical Guitar ·
Bijan is a very good guitar instructor. My daughter and I both took guitar lessons and he was able to work with us as individuals since we both had different skill levels. Bijan is very patient with his students and helped us through various learning obstacles. I highly recommend anyone that needs or wants to learn any musical instrument to take lessons from Bijan.

Bijan is a great teacher. He is kind and knowledgeable at the same time. He is patient for all the questions you have.
He gives you good resources and goes with your pace.
I do recommend Bijan for the new and experienced piano learners.

Bijan is a great teacher. Learning to play the cello as an adult is tough, but he's very organized and encouraging. The recital was very anxiety-inducing, but we did really well and I felt a great sense of accomplishment afterward. I am only discontinuing due to distance and time constraints.

Bijan is an excellent instructor. With whatever you are going to learn, he knows what he is doing. Even though I only took cello lessons for a short time, he taught me so much with each lesson. He is worth the money and you will learn so much.

I am taking singing lessons with Bijan Zelli and Iâm pleased with his approach and what Iâm learning,
Bijan is very knowledgeable about music and is personable, patient and supportive, qualities I need and respect in a teacher.
When we started, Bijan took the time to ask me what I wanted and did a diagnosis to find the range, upper and lower, that I was capable of singing, to determine my basic knowledge of music and hear how I put over a song. From that he developed his approach with me.
Even in the short (2+ months) time weâve been working together, I can see improvement in several areas. First, Bijan showed me that to really sing a song and best use my voice, I needed to learn some music basics. Second, he is teaching me how to listen to a song versus hearing it. The result is not just to sing a song, but sing it with the expression and emotion that draws an audience in.
Bottom line: I recommend Bijan Zelli if you want to improve the quality of your singing.

gave confidence and took me to another level
i was always told i could not sing and was hopeless. Bjian was patient and put up with me being out of tune and out of rhythm most of the time. started with easy stuff, and gradually led me to more complex pieces. he was also receptive in terms of working on specific pieces that i was interested in, off the beaten track. he made recordings of my pieces, and encouraged me to perform in recitals. overall, an awesome experience.

Bijan Z. - A Knowledgeable, Patient Teacher
I have played guitar in a classic rock band for many years. I always wanted to learn how to play the piano, but never allocated the time to do so. When I finally decided to take piano lessons, I wanted to find a teacher who could start me off as a beginning student; someone who could teach me to sight read piano music and to help me develop my left & right hand piano skills and teach me proper technique from the get-go. Bijan Z. has done an excellent job of teaching me, and getting me sight reading & playing with both hands, right away. He is very knowledgeable and patient, and his positive attitude has encouraged me to practice regularly which has helped to keep me focused on my piano goals.
