I am a new student of Shirin. I am 50 years old and cannot say enough good
things about her. My posture, bowing, fingering, ability to read music, and
the 100% positive nervousness about what 'new' we will learn next week has made every minute a sheer joy.
Speaking on behalf of all absolute beginners, Shirin has made the first steps a comfortable, enthusiastic, motivating and 100% fun experience.
Shirin has created the perfect learning environment and I am drinking deep
from her ocean of knowledge and experience.
You'd be crazy to go anywhere else!
"Shirin is an amazing teacher! She has an amazing knowledge set and is very very patient. She is so encouraging and flexible with my needs and busy schedule. She has so much experience and is very clearly passionate about music. She has a great handle on giving me homework that is both fun and challenging. There is no silly question or goal that is too crazy. I believe that she really invests in people and listens to individual goals. She really gets to know you as a person and is both sincere and genuine. This is an amazing Violin teacher who keeps me accountable and moves me forward. I would recommend her 100%!!!!!"
"Shirin is currently teaching my 8 year old daughter. She has only been taking lessons for less than a year but has made great strides. Shirin is very attentive to details such as posture and avoids the development of bad habits. My daughter loves playing and looks forward to her lessons with Shirin. Highly recommended."
"Best Teacher of all times. Has the patience and talent to teach any type of student."
"When I moved from New York to LA, I decided to look into private violin lessons after failing miserably to try to teach myself. I contacted Shirin and started taking lessons and my progress in developing new skills grew exponentially from what I could do on my own. Shirin is patient and encouraging as a teacher, which really helps when trying to learn a difficult instrument (I play guitar and piano as well). Her lessons are challenging and have pushed me outside of my comfort zone with this new instrument which has helped me grow as a musician. I definitely recommend anyone interested in learning violin to have lessons with Shirin."
If i want to spend my money and energy on learning and improving my music skills, I will do so with someone who has years of teaching experience under her belt. On top of that, Shirin's passion and love of music is inspiring and contagious. Her teaching skills and lovely personality makes her an ideal music instructor for every age group.
"I have been a student of Shirin for more than 4 years after switching from Piano to Violin. Shirin makes music a positive and fun experience for me. I have a chance to play my most favorite pieces and learn different techniques meanwhile. She helps me read music and enjoy the process of learning something new. I am very glad I had started playing a violin with Shirin. She was always on time for lessons, was very knowledgeable, and showed a genuine concern for my success as a violinist. She has been very patient with my slow progress and she is very flexible with choice of music, lesson time, and date. I have had nothing but a positive experience with her lessons."
"I have been a student of Shirin more than 5 years and I have been happy since the first lesson. I started without any background of music and couldn’t read the music note either. I had to start and be trained from zero as an adult beginner and it was not easy but Shirin made it a positive and fun experience for me. Now I can read music and enjoying the process of learning something new. I wish I started much earlier but glad I had started playing a violin with Shirin. She has been very patient with my slow progress and she is very flexible with choice of music, lesson time, and date. I have had nothing but a positive experience with her lessons."
"Shirin is so helpful and patient. She is such an amazing teacher and has such a gift for making you feel and ease but also being able to push you. I 100% recommend her."
"I have been learning Violin with Shirin after switching from many different teachers. Finally I have found Shirin through Allegro Music School and she changed my previous not so pleasant experience to fun music lessons. She is very knowledgeable in the field of music and I have learned a lot from her while she was guiding me through the Royal Music Conservatory Exams. "
