Ara Aghazadehmasrour
Piano instructor 

Ara Aghazadehmasrou started playing piano when he was 5 years old. In addition to his piano studies, he took classes in solfege and was a member of the Tehran Choral Group as a Tenor-Baritone. He has a bachelor’s degree in Classical Music Performance from the University of Art, Tehran.

Ara has given several recitals as a solo pianist, and has also taken part in many chamber music concerts. Some of the venues he has performed in are Farabi Hall and Roudaki Hall in Tehran. After winning a competition at the university, he had the opportunity to perform Prokofiev`s First Piano Concerto with the university`s orchestra. Ara has also been an accompanist for choral groups.

In 2009 Ara travelled to Armenia to participate in a master class with the well-known pianist Sergei Babayon. 

Ara has been teaching piano for six years. He taught piano for 4 years in the Art and Literature Music School in Tehran, which is the largest music school in Iran. He also has experience teaching solfege.

Ara believes that the key for making a student into a good musician is teaching them to love music. One important aspect of this is teaching the student to be a good listener. Ara strives to make his classes challenging, but at the same time he makes the students feel encouraged and wants the classes to be fun!
