Introduction: I do believe how a student must be taught and I communicate in a most effective way and encourage the student to practice violin, not as a chore but as a fun activity. When we get a difficult piece of music, I clarify and demonstrate in a simple way, play them as many times as needed, until the student understands the musical idea. Teaching students, and utmost enjoyment when I see their progress.

Violin Lessons

Nader is what we were looking for in a violin teacher. He has patience teaching entry level, he is great teaching my daughter who had never played violin but wanted to learn and is learning quick and she likes it.

Cello Lessons

I have only had 2 lessons so far but I am quite satisfied so far. Nader has been very attentive at directing my novice cello skills. I am feeling hopeful that I will be able to reach proficiency with sufficient practice.

Violin Lessons

Nadir is wonderful with my autistic/genius daughter. He’s sensitive to her emotional needs, supportive, encouraging and kind. He gently pushes her to do better each week without coming across as demanding or insistent. He’s given her such confidence in her ability that she feels comfortable trying new things. Nadir is an excellent teacher.

Violin Lessons

Can't recommend him enough! He's kind, patient, and so easy to work with. I have a tendency to overthink and second guess as I'm playing (had some bad experiences with other teachers when first learning) and his teaching style is the PERFECT match for me - he's very quick and engaging while teaching, so I don't have time to second guess myself and have to just go with the feel of the music and the instrument. I'm still in the beginning stages, but it's really helped my confidence! I'm learning the violin as an adult, with no prior experience as a child, and for the first time I truly believe that I can learn and be successful in playing. If you're looking for someone who is clearly dedicated to the violin and cares about your progress and success, look no further! He's amazing. :)

Violin Lessons (for adults)

As an adult beginner, I did not exactly know what to expect when it came to a music teacher. I’ve never taken up an instrument in my life, and to start now, with the violin - this would be challenging. So when it came to Nader’s years of experience, and step by step instruction, I found the experience not so overwhelming, and full of potential. I’ve been taking lessons for 28 weeks now, and I’ve seen how Nader has molded me so far. Firstly, building upon basics, and laying down a foundation, which seemed strict and formal, but necessary as my skills progressed. We’ve covered many compositions by different composers so far, touching on the very fundamentals that have honed my technique, such as reading music, practicing scales/arpeggios, and duets. I’m excited to build on this and progress to higher positions, and of course learning vibrato. Throughout the journey, our love of classical music has always been the motivation behind our paths. He’s always passionate about the story a musical piece can portray - building/releasing tension, using a minor/major scale, time signatures - and as such encourages listening to as much music as possible! Youtube, Spotify, anything to hear such great artists as Bach, Beethoven, Paganini, or Wieniawski; to see such great artists compete in the International Henryk Wieniawski Violin Competition; and the numerous videos on musical history, music theory, documentaries - the internet is such a great tool. I was nervous when I first began. Worried I had bitten off more than I could chew; excited to play Partita D minor BWV 1004 by JS Bach and never reaching that level; but in truth, I’ve found this to be one of the most challenging endeavors I’ve ever taken on and am loving every moment of it. It has added a whole new light of appreciation in music, as well as an enlightening aspect of neurological intrigue.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I do not have a standard pricing system. In the past, I offered discounted lessons to children whose parents could not normally afford a full priced lesson. I do not believe that any one should be deprived of the opportunity to learn a beautiful art and an education based on their ability to pay. At the same time, I do not penalize those who can afford my lessons by overcharging them. In my opinion, I offer a very reasonable and consistent price, but still retain a degree of flexibility for possible acceptions as well as a high standard for what a lesson ought to to entail.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    It is my standard procedure to offer a free first lesson to any new student, as a means of establishing trust in both my methodology and my person. A free lesson is one way of allowing the student to find that trust with his or her instructor at no risk and/or anxiety on the part of the student. Such trust is an essential foundation for any teacher to convey his or her points to the student. At the same time, the first lesson will include an evaluation on my part, of the student's abilities, technical level, musical sensitivities, and personality traits. Obviously, more advanced students require a different approach then novice ones. As a further example, I have taught an autistic child where I tailored my methods to his special needs in order for him to have sustained progress.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    As a child, I received violin lessons privately and then attended a nightly program at the Tehran Conservatory of Music. I subsequently entered Tehran University, where I continued my musical training with the violin. My certificates include a bachelors degree in musicology, and a masters and doctorate degree in composition. While studying composition at the University of New Mexico, I took many violin courses under one of the most knowledgeable violin pedagogues at the time. I have studied under four different mentors, who were representative of the Russian, Belgian, American schools of violin.
