It was so exciting to come back to piano with a whole new approach. I took lessons as a kid and I remember nothing sticking. Wasn’t sure if I’d be able to learn at my age, but the way Karim teaches helps everything come together. It’s like a little eureka moment every week!

Kelly (piano student)

I’m so happy we found Karim! My daughter had learned with another teacher until a few years ago until she lost enthusiasm for piano. About six months ago, a family friend recommended Karim when [my daughter] said she wanted to give it another try. Karim is incredibly patient and he has a way of explaining things in a way she can follow. It’s been lovely to see her progress. Most of all, [my daughter] has fun learning to play and she’s always excited for her next lesson. Thanks so much!

Melissa (parent of piano student)

I’ve been playing and writing music for years. Before I started theory lessons with Karim I felt like I’d hit a wall. It’s amazing to think how much just makes sense now when it never did before; I finally understand what makes music work and it’s totally freed up my music making.

Jack (music theory student)

Karim is a fantastic teacher. It’s been great to see both my children develop in confidence as well as listening to their music. I was especially grateful that he embraced my son’s interest in rock music. In school, they were expected to go down the grade route so it was great to find a teacher who could encourage him with that too.
