I am an Egyptian composer based in Los Angeles. I specialize in music composition and sound editing for visual media, including movies, video games, music videos, and other projects. A composer and performer since childhood, I've toured the United States, Europe and the Middle East, singing opera and lending my immense talents as a pianist and violinist. I've sung opera with some of the most famous orchestras and opera houses, such as the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, Opera Dubai, Cairo Opera House, as well as in one of the biggest opera festivals in Europe: Savonlinna Opera Festival in Finland. After winning a full scholarship to study with famed bass baritone, Tom Kruas, I immigrated to Colorado where I enrolled in Colorado State University at Boulder. During my time in Colorado I not only studied singing, but also branched out into other avenues of music, studying conducting with the famous Italian conductor, David Creshanzi, and music composition at various other schools. I've composed scores and edited sound for shorts, trailers, commercials and featurettes, and more, including music for Sitter, comedy short, What Future, Sci-fi short Mascatonic, horror sci-fi web series featurette, Through The Woods, and others. Among my awards include: “Best Horror Film” at the International Burbank Film Festival for Through the Woods, and “Best soundtrack at” 48 Hour Film Festival at Minnesota State University at Moorhead for Final Transmission.
My teaching experience dates back to my college as I began teaching private lessons part time 12 years ago, and have been consistently teaching students in my home studio for the last 4 years. Encouraging regular practice on a consistent schedule is one of the key points I like to emphasize for younger students, as it tends to help the student progress and gain a passion for the instrument. I've also found that combination of classical and modern music can go a long way in helping students enjoy the instrument and motivate them to practice and continue to learn. If a student is not having fun in their lessons, then I am not doing my job right! My students are encouraged to enter competitions and recitals as well as work on composing their own original material, so they feel good about their accomplishments and stay motivated to learn. I am always looking to bring on new students of all ages.
For beginning students who are children, I start with Leonards Essential Elements or the Suzuki method if the student is looking to learn this method. Once the student has progressed to have a grasp of the fundamentals, I will begin to introduce solo repertoire appropriate for their first reciral performance. For adults, I try to find out what the student is interested in, and guide my instruction accordingly to keep the lessons engaging and fun, no matter their ability level.
My teaching style varies according to my students. I try to find out what inspires the student so I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs. I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lessons.
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.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
