Zaid is knowledgeable and dedicated instructor. He has taught my daughter for at least two years who had no experience and I feel that she has progressed faster than I think she would have at any typical music place.
The organization, and structure of the lessons are well planned and easy to follow.

Zaid is a wonderful teacher, he is very dedicated in what he does. He cares about his students learning. In my first lesson with him helped understand the notes in a very practical easy to remember way. He mainly teaches piano but he also does bass and drums. I would definitely recommend him!!!

Zaid is an amazing teacher! I didn’t think I could learn much since I’ve been playing for years, but he’s managed to teach me new techniques and theories. He’s patient, detailed and willing to help you in any way shape or form. He’s excellent at what he does and best of all he has a great spirit to prove it.

We had the privilege of having Mr. Zaid give our son private piano lessons. He is a very detailed instructor, very patient with his students.

He does not rush while giving the lesson, but rather genuinely cares about the students progress and is very creative in his style of teaching I would highly recommend his program.
