My family had the privilege of Emrah providing piano lessons to our son for 2 years. He was very professional, patient, and enthusiastic about teaching. We very quickly got a sense of how he loves to teach, not just as a side gig, but really enjoys seeing that magical moment when a student moves from playing a piece as a rote, motor exercise to when it becomes music and lives. When our son started lessons with Emrah, he was 11. He has high-functioning autism and could be a bit of a challenge to work with, but Emrah handled the challenges very well and adjusted the lessons to meet his needs. Our son looked forward to his piano time and enjoyed working with Emrah. He was always punctual and when circumstances delaying his arrival arose, he always contacted me very quickly to either arrange for a different date or time or to let me know he was running late; he was always very respectful of our time and schedule and that was much appreciated. We were so fortunate to have such a great teacher come to our house on Saturday afternoons to fill the house with music. It was a pleasure to work with him and I wish him every success now thatâs moving to New Jersey. Weâll certainly miss him very much! Best of luck, Emrah!
