For as long as I can remember, piano has always been a great part of my life. I am now a virtuoso concert pianist and I've played in many concerts around the world (US, France, Morocco, Italy, Hungary, UK). Playing in concerts and performing has been my joy for so long as they have opened a whole new world for me, a world where I can be as free and open as I can be.
Ever since I was a little kid, I would participate in international competitions and I have won many of them such as The Royal Piano Competition and the Grand piano Virtuso competition. I have won many other national competitions as well. For me winning is not the goal, the goal is to play from the heart, although that sounds cheesy, its true. Playing from the heart not only means feeling every note but also understanding every note and phrase.
I've been teaching for over 7 years now and my students have also won many competitions. I always want the best for my students and always go above and beyond to make sure they go from learning simple scales and chords to learning beautiful and stunning pieces.
Another thing I love doing is playing in concerts with an orchestra. Nobody can describe the feeling of playing in an orchestra with music all around you from many different instruments, feeling every violin and how it interacts with a clarinet or a flute. The beauty of that is only felt by pianists who have played with an orchestra before. That is why I teach my students pieces to play with the orchestra so that they feel the real power of music.
As a student, I was selected to be the conductor of the wind symphony and the official orchestra pianist.
I took some private free classes and I am so happy I turned to Hakim Almandri to help cuz not only he is such an amazing pianist and teacher but also he is such a nice and patient person. Perfectionist, professional and helpful he is , and it’s what makes him unique and the perfect teacher for all levels+ Read More
I always thought learning online was a joke, until I met Mr. Hakim. He made me learn in these online classes more than I had ever learned before with my previous professors. Great teacher.
Honestly I could never find a better teacher, this teacher has made me go from liking the piano to falling completely in love with it. I wish more teachers were like him.
Professor Hakim is the best teacher I have ever had. He has taught me pieces I didnt know were possible to learn. Also he is one of the best concert pianists I’ve watched.
I learned pieces with this teacher that I never thought were possible to learn. Although my english isn't so good, he speaks french which makes it easier. Also, he is a very sensitive player and one of the best pianists I've watched play.
One of the best teachers I've ever had, the way he teaches to play is incredible and easy.
