There are those who are great performers / artists and there are those who are able to also impart their artistic knowledge to students. ABshek is definitely one who is equally adept at sharing what he knows to his students. I have been a vocal student of his for the last four years and I can highly vouch for his dedication and sincerity as a teacher. He cares about his students learning, in and beyond the classroom. Wonderful person, wonderful teacher.

I got to know ABshek through this website a few months ago for keyboard and music production. He truly understands the value of being an articulate teacher - he explains difficult concepts with great ease and sensitivity, which is immensely valuable to any beginner! I would definitely recommend ABshek if you are looking for someone to guide you through the art of vocals, music production or piano / keyboard.

ABshek has been one of the most inspiring tutors I have come across. I started taking music production lessons from him a year ago and recently started learning piano as well. I have seen immense progress in my ability to produce / play music while broadening my understanding of music as a whole. Highly recommended. Thanks ABshek!

ABshek's interview

QUESTION 01 | 05
When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
ABshek — Having grown up in a musical family, music was always part of the household. I recollect having developed keen interest for classical music at a young age and began taking vocal lessons. Eventually, I joined my father on stage by performing Pop, R&B and Fusion songs professionally. The experience of learning music formally in class along with the practical application of performing on stage from a young age allowed me to get a wholesome experience of a musician's life - and I truly began loving it. The interest turned into passion, which then turned into life itself - and I couldn't have wanted it otherwise.
QUESTION 02 | 05
What makes you passionate about your subject?
ABshek — The thrill of being able to absorb, internalize, reproduce and even create music is one that is truly unparalleled. I am passionate about listening to different kinds of music, singing in multiple styles and languages, being able to write songs and produce music in numerous styles and teaching a diverse array of students the art of music and its multiple facets. Every one of these branches gives me utmost joy and that is what makes me so passionate about my profession.
QUESTION 03 | 05
What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
ABshek — I view tutoring as a wonderful means of sharing knowledge and experience. When I teach a student, whether it be for singing or music production or songwriting, I end up learning so much myself. I love being able to break down concepts and ideas about my own understanding of music which I may not have broken down otherwise. It allows for a meaningful exchange of ideas and a wonderful way to contribute to the community by sharing this wealth of music.
QUESTION 04 | 05
Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
ABshek — My father is my ultimate role model. He has been a wonderful teacher and still is extremely instrumental in my understanding, imbibing and production of this art. He embodies impeccable knowledge, determination and patience as a teacher - and that is something that completely inspires me with my own teaching. I always try to emulate his methods of simplifying complex concepts and techniques and catering each lesson according to the needs and demands of the student.
QUESTION 05 | 05
What are your keys to success?
ABshek — I believe my keys to success lie in sincerity and honesty in whatever I do. If I believe in my music, I am confident that someone else will as well. I aim to always approach my singing, performing, songwriting, production and teaching with utmost sincerity. As a tutor, specifically, I feel it is imperative to be genuine with your students who are spending their time and money for the initiative. I believe my success as a tutor thus far has been mainly because of the honesty with which I approach each lesson of mine, and the sincerity with which I teach my students and value their time.
