“Keyan is an amazing piano teacher and mentor for anyone seeking greater achievement and enjoyment in piano studies. He is highly experienced and very professional which you can see in his lessons and in the results he creates in his students. One of my favorite things about Keyan is that he will push you to do your utmost best with every piece, paying attention not only to technical detail but also to the emotion and story that every piece should express. The best part is that he does this kindly and patiently. I would recommend Keyan for anyone looking for a solid & enjoyable music education.”

“From punctuality, professionalism & impeccable knowledge of music to sense of humour & being detailed oriented, Dr. Keyan Emami, is one of the greatest composers/pianist I have been trained by.
It’s hard to define his passionate performance in a sentence as all he’s thriving is for his trainees to be better
Each & everyday.
As we say in French ‘une leçon à la fois’, Dr.Keyan Emami ‘s way of training patiently assists his students to improve one step at a time.
His thorough knowledge of music allows him to share a profound vision with his students unlike any other mentor.
Needless to mention his sense of humor while training makes his trainees comfortable & encourages them to feel at ease while learning.
Thank you very much for mentoring me in my new path of learning the Piano!”

I would like to thank you for professional method you had to teach my daughter. She passed RCM exam, level of Advanced rudiment music theory with honor level. She had never taken the previous theory levels before. It looked first impossible that she gets prepared in just 5 months for this level, but with your advanced teaching skills, she could pass her exam with a very good mark. Your precise explanations in a smooth and understandable way for an 11 year old, made her achieve her goal. It is really hard to find a good music theory teacher to be able to teach all the materials in a short period of time. Keyan always answered her questions with patience and kindly, and explained all the details until she figured out completely. It is a big success for my daughter to feel she can come over a challenging exam that first looked impossible to her to even pass it. Now She feels more confident than before with this success, and all of this achievement is the result of your advanced knowledge of music for teaching young students with basic knowledge of music. I highly recommend Keyan to whom is looking for a professional music teacher. I am very glad that we could get to know Keyan. Success and happiness of my daughter is the best thing that I want for my child and this time, Keyan could make it possible. He is a very educated teacher.
All the best to Keyan and his endeavor in teaching music.”
