Wanna learn some cool rock and pop piano songs? Interested in playing some Ed Sheeran or Queen's songs? Or intrigued by classical composers such as Chopin? Either way, just send me a message!

Methodology

My most important technique is that I first make sure the student is happy with what she's practicing and learning. We have to make it a fun process in order to make it easy to learn music!
So, basically, since we are living in this COVID-19 era, classes will be online over Skype or Zoom platform. Based on the current level of the student, we choose a book to work on through our sessions, and besides that, we try to work music theories as well since knowing music theory is a major part of learning music and can be useful in learning any kind of instruments, and piano would be no exception!
During the week, the student can contact me via email or a text message, and I try to help her in order to make sure she will not be working on something wrong during the whole week. Knowing that whether the student is on the right track is the key to success!

Background

I'm a master's student in the CSE program (a multidisciplinary program of Mathematics and Business) at McMaster University. In spite of not being a music student in academics, I've been working in this field for more than ten years, have lots of live performances either as solos or group performance and with all of them, I've gained lots of experience and techniques which can be useful for anyone who likes to learn piano especially for non-classical purposes!

I’ve been taking Piano lessons with Shayan for 2 years now. He is patient with his students and he makes his classes fun. Great teacher and piano player :)

S
Sajjad

I've had the distinct privilege of knowing Shayan for more than 5 years. I've been to too many of his live performances including his solo piano performances as well as his collaborations with several different bands. I have also known a few of his learners and I'd like to assure you that he is a great teacher.
Besides qualifications, his unique talents and his professionalism, Shayan is also an extraordinary person and it is always fun to work with him.

M
Mohammad Taha

I know Shayan for more than five years and he's been a nice friend of mine. I've been in a couple of his live performances and from there, I can say his piano techniques are amazing. I've never been to his classes but I heard lots of good and fun things regarding them. I suggest anyone who is really willing to learn piano try his classes for at least one session, and when they know his personality, they'll definitely continue their sessions!

J
Julia

I'm in an a cappella group with Shayan and am the first to say I don't have the piano skills he does! He helps me out whenever I have a theory question (i.e. rhythms, chords), need to play something on piano, or want advice on musical elements (i.e. tone, blend). He is a compassionate, dedicated, and patient person, which no doubt will translate to teaching piano. Highly recommend.

I've had the distinct privilege of knowing Shayan for more than 5 years. I've been to too many of his live performances including his solo piano performances as well as his collaborations with several different bands. He is one hell of a rockstar! I have also known a couple of his learners and I'd assure you he is an incredible teacher too.
Besides his professionalism, skills, and talents, Shayan is also an incredible person who is easy to work with and learn from.

Listening to piano can happen to us at work, at home, or on social media. For me, just a few numbers of pianists are able to touch my emotions in the way they play the piano. Shayan is definitely one of those pianists.

Conor

Shayan is a phenomenal piano player and a great person. We have been working collaboratively on music for the last year through the organization MacBeat. He's incredibly easy to work with, a vibrant soul, caring teacher, and excellent musician.
