Shahriyar is very kind and responsible. He makes the lessons so much fun and interesting, at the same time he is serious and demanding.We analyse pieces in class and we work on different ways of interpreting music. I also learn a lot about music history and music theory.

Teaching is one of the most rewarding activities for me. I have taught professional and non-professional musicians for over 6 years and I still enjoy sharing my passion with people.

I have been composing since I was 12 years old. My music has been performed by professional ensembles and musicians such as Kairosquartett, Ensemble Recherche, Austrian Ensemble for New Music, New Art and Music Ensemble Salzburg, Mozarteum Institute for New Music Ensemble and others in Asia, Europe and North America. My main focus is contemporary classical concert music, as well as music-theater and electronic music. Recently I am working on projects using extended media such as photography.
