Bothell, Washington
In 20 years of my piano teaching experince with 5 to 45 years old students, I tried to make it enjoyable and avoiding boredom with my special technics. Whatever my students goals are, I combine it with music theory, oral, scales and sight reading to improve their skills in achieving those goals. My main goal is to create for my students the sense of connection to the world of music.
About Laleh A.

I have been teaching piano for more than 20 years, have played in multiple concerts, and have had the pleasure of teaching many talented students. What I do want to tell you is what I love about teaching piano and how I work with my students. What gets me excited is when my student and I have been working on a piece for couple of weeks and after putting the right effort we start to see results. The fluid movement of the hands, picking up the tempo of the piece, and steadily following through the melody are all part of these results. This is always the case whether we're playing Twinkle Twinkle with one of my beginner and younger students or diving into Beethoven's For Elise with some of my more advanced students. It is really energizing to see and be part of this progress and improvement. That's what I enjoy the most from teaching piano. I keep my classes relaxed and fun, we laugh and enjoy ourselves, but when it comes to practice and learning piano, discipline is key. What I do guarantee is that you will not get bored. My specialty is in classical and jazz music, but I've worked on a wide variety of genres. I look forward to hearing from you and to start our piano journey.

Laleh is an amazing teacher. My 10 year old has improved so much and is more connected to her music since starting classes with Laleh. The pieces that Laleh chooses for her has given her so much joy and confidence and she is blossoming into a fantastic musician. My 5 year old is enamored of Laleh and in just a few classes I have seen so much progress. Laleh is fantastic and anyone who has her as their teacher is really lucky.

Laleh is a GREAT teacher. We're so happy with how our first lesson went. My son is shy/slow to warm up to new people and after his lesson he was all smiles letting us know everything he learned. :)
