Classical Guitar · In studio

Golriz is one of the kindest and most patient teachers I have ever had the pleasure of studying with. She is funny, and she was very helpful in showing me proper playing techniques on the guitar. I have tried to learn from other teachers, but I always quit with hand cramps, broken strings, and confusion, but "Gigi" found a way to teach me the way I best understood. She is also a fabulous player! If you want to learn guitar, she is your best bet!

Oh, and while I have not formally studied Farsi with her, she has taught me some phrases here and there (upon my request) in our lessons, and because Farsi is her native tongue, 10/10 would recommend studying with her for that as well, for her skills as a teacher seem to permeate into everything I have ever done with her!
