Overview

I started music lessons at the age of ten with private Piano lessons. I took lessons for 15 years with prominent teachers, while mastering piano technique with a wide array of classical repertoire, from Bach to Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin.
I have been teaching piano since 1984 and acquired the skills through interacting with a variety of students of all tastes and needs.
I am able to help a music oriented student reach at a better understanding of piano playing technique.

*** Lesson Details ***
I would like my students to listen carefully to what they play, and practice attentively, which takes less time and more learning material achieved.
I will evaluate which teaching method is suitable for my student after the orientation session.
An average music student will be able to read notes, count beats, and will have finished the basic course of piano lessons in 6 months.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Yamaha standard piano keyboard

*** Travel Equipment ***
I travel to student's place.

*** Specialties ***
Western Classical

I have known Masood personally and professionally for over 35 years. He is an extremely patient and hardworking individual. I have had the opportunity to work with him and have referred students to him on numerous occasions while my niece has been taking piano lessons from him for the past year or so and has made excellent progress. I would definitely recommend Masood for anyone’s music endeavor.
