Hi! I believe that music is rooted in all human beings and cultures in a reach and vast variety of forms. Music unifies and engages thinking and feeling in a direct and immediate way. Music influences individuals simultaneously on different levels of consciousness and form an important device for learning, recreation, arranging of conscious and unconscious impressions and at the same time for characterizing and conveying ideas and thoughts. This as a point of departure characterizes my teaching philosophy, which strives to create a climate in which my students can experience continuous musical, intellectual, and emotional growth. As a music instructor and musicologist I demonstrate the characteristics of professional and passionate for everything related to my teaching. I am passionate; for I know the more I teach the more I learn. I have three educations: 1) PhD in Musicology, 2) Master in Music Education and 3) Bachelor in Electrical Engineering.

Bijan is deeply rooted in music and conveys that knowledge effectively in me as his student. He's helped me understand not only how to play songs I enjoy, but to develop me as a musician. I highly recommend him.
It was a lot of fun. He is great at explaining and a positive and patient teacher!
Bijan was very welcoming and encoutaging. His observations about what I need to work on were the kindof couching I was looking for. I am already looking forward to the next lesson.
