I've trained extensively in classical piano for several yrs., and play in a multitude of styles particularly Jazz, Gospel, and RnB. I've been a teaching artist for several after school music programs; most recently being "The Harmony Project" (3 yrs.) and “Success Through the Arts Foundation" (2yrs). Aside from this I've performed for a variety of venues, bands, vocalists, and church choirs. I teach Music Theory, Sight Reading, Ear Training, and give them the tools to develop Technical proficiency on their instrument so they may become self-sufficient.
Arif is patient with my children and inspires. He lets them know their strengths, which empowered them to take their lessons seriously.
Arif is very detailed and thorough. His method of teaching simplifies even the most difficult concepts. I know I’ve developed as a musician as a result of learning from him.
