I am patient, passionate, self-motivated and responsible teacher. I am also an effective instructor with the ability to create a fun-filled atmosphere and develop strong rapport with students and parents. In 1997, I graduated from Cairo University with a Bachelor of Music Education. I have been working as a classroom teacher and a private tutor for the last fifteen years in many countries, including Egypt, Dubai, and the U.S. I teach piano, guitar, and violin. I look forward to meeting and teaching you!

For beginning students who are children, I usually use the Alfred Music Piano Methods series, and include music theory and ear training as a part of the curriculum. Once students have grasped the fundamentals, I will introduce solo repertoire appropriate for receital performances to encourage and motivate their learning. For adult students, I love to spend time to figure out the students musical interests, and use the types of music they enjoy to guide my instruction so the lessons can be engaging and fun.

I always want my students to strive, as I do, toward an ideal, without an attachment to the result.  For example, if a student wants to play like Jimi Hendrix and become a Rock Star, we will talk about what it takes to reach that goal and work (and play) diligently and enthusiastically toward it, and when difficulties inevitably arise, that's OK.  Keep up the practice and you will most likely reach your goal.  If the student does not reach his/her goal and they put in genuine effort and most importantly, heart, then undoubtedly they have gained from it and I am never one to harshly criticize a student.  If I think they can do better I will tell them how, but for me, music is made primarily for enjoyment and self improvement and not for the approval of others or to be better than others.  I would rather a student enjoy making music and be proud of their accomplishments than to diminish their self-worth against impossible standards.  I find that those who are encouraged to reach higher standards for their own sake rather than the approval of others are much more likely to succeed and actually achieve objectively impressive musical heights

I started teaching private students during my undergraduate years.  During these years many of the students were beginners who were starting in beginning band.  Shortly after my undergraduate studies I taught music in the classroom for the next 15 years.  My classroom experience range from grades pre k- collegiate.  I've taught courses in general music, various theory and composition courses, instrumental band and orchestra.  I've also taught brass methods courses for educators in their preparation for teaching instrumental music.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
