About Minoo M.


I am a member of Music Teacher Associate Of California (MTAC) with more than 21 years of teaching experience. I have helped students to achieve The MTAC Certificate of Merit.

I provide online lessons and in person sessions at students' place.

My teaching philosophy is to make learning music fun and exciting! I always encourage my students to learn the music that they find most appealing, rather than using a specific curriculum and method book. I teach private lessons and have had the experience of working with hundreds of students ranging from beginners with no experience to advanced students.

I look forward to helping you reach your musical skills!

Thank you

I am a 12 year old piano student and have been taking piano lessons with Minoo for 5 months. In that short time, I have progressed much faster than I could have imagined. I have learned so much about the piano and how to read music. Minoo always makes sure I understands every part of my lessons. When I struggle with notes, Minoo patiently gets me through until I succeed. She is one of my favorite teachers, music-wise and school-wise. Minoo is a caring, calm and happy teacher. I’m glad we found her to teach me piano. Thank you Minoo!

As an adult learner, I was intimidated to start piano. Minoo is encouraging as well as a skillful teacher. I highly recommend her.

I am 70 and recently started learning to play piano with Minoo -- she is simply the very best teacher you could get! Already, she has me playing with two hands multiple songs and without looking at the keyboard! You will be amazed and grateful to have her as your teacher. She has me wanting to and happy to practice.

Minoo has taught me so much more than any piano instructor I ever had and she did it in only a few lessons so far. She makes it fun and now I really like practicing ---something my previous instructors did not seem to inspire me to do.

Minoo has done a wonderful job. My granddaughter is five so it was important to keep the classes fun—yet we obviously want her to be learning to play. My granddaughter looks forward to her lesson each week.

Minoo is a wonderful instructor--II did not begin lessons until nearly 60 and was apprehensive about starting so late, but she has been extremely patient, professional, and encouraging. She is passionate about teaching and is dedicated to her students. I highly recommend her!

Minoo was awesome. She was very understanding and patient with my daughter since she has vision issues.

Minoo is an amazing instructor. She has been working with my younger son since he was 4. He is a squirmy little guy and she has been able to keep him engaged and interested, while making lessons fun. I so appreciate that Minoo's focus is to foster a love of music and we've been so impressed with the progress our son has made in a short time!

Minoo has been a wonderful piano teacher for my 8-year-old daughter for the past year. She is always punctual and prepared, bringing my daughter new music as soon as she masters a piece. She is kind and patient, and my daughter enjoys her lessons very much. As a bonus, Minoo organizes a yearly recital for her students, so we get to see their progress. I highly recommend her as a piano teacher:)

I would absolutely give her 5 stars!!! And if it were out of 10, I would give her 10!!! She is so awesome with my daughter (6). She is patient and knows how to teach young children. We really enjoy having Minoo as our daughters teacher and my child has learned how to play the piano !!! I highly recommend this piano instructor !!!!

Minoo is an excellent teacher! She's very patient and she makes it fun. She actually had me playing songs by my 2nd lesson! For someone who had no idea how to read music let alone play the piano before she walked through my door, I find it quite remarkable. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn how to play.

I have studied, performed and taught music over 24 years. I like to focus on music theory and reading skills, in addition to developing musicality from the first lesson.
