I met with Elif and she is fantastic. We made a plan and I’m excited about it!May 10, 2018Verified
Had a trial lesson; understands student needs and proposes a rough curriculum on the spot. Her years of expertise are exhibited through her knowledge and performance.Mar 21, 2018Verified
I selected Elif for my young son as she is not only a great teacher but also an active professional who can teach many things that only a professional pianist can. She is great with my child and has amazingly improved my son's skills in a year. He started right after his 4th birthday and is now going into his second year with Elif. I have quite a drive to get to her studio but to me it is worth it. I definitely recommend Elif for both people who just want to learn or for people seriously looking to become a professional pianist.Dec 29, 2015Verified
A very professional teacher. She knows what need to be focused on my child. Very organized and explain in detail so the child will understand.May 13, 2015Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I do not. I kindly ask that students pay at the beginning of each month and I do offer make-up lessons for missed lessons.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I always offer free trial lessons to meet with new students. This allows us to not only determine the students level but also to see if we are a good match. I believe that it is important for students to find the "right" teacher for themselves. At the trial lesson, I typically determine the students level and decide which material to use. With beginner level students, I recommend to start with a 30 minute lesson. After several months, if the students progress is good, we typically switch to 45 minutes or 1 hour lessons.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Music is an endless field. I practice everyday as much as I possibly can and read about music to always further my education. I also follow most classical and jazz concerts in Chicago area.
