We Welcome Sarvar into Austin and Our mists. 



“There may be many good pianists out in the world, but not all of them know how to work with children. We were amazed by Sarvar the first time we met him when he explained to my 6 year old daughter how to balance out the melody between the right and left hands. Sarvar is humorous and musical. Next year will be our 6th year with Sarvar, both my daughters enjoy taking lessons with him, and so do us parents. We feel his passion about music when in class. He is, of course, technical. At times, he can be picky about how a single note should be played, but then we were always impressed when we heard the notes run through our daughters’ fingers. After fine tuning by Sarvar, the rich sound of music and the dynamic would give the pieces a life like feel that we’ve never known. The girls learned not only how to play piano, but also to appreciate music greatly.

In addition to piano, my daughter also looks forward to composition class every week. In the composition class, she learns how to create different types of music that can vary from happy and joyful to dark and dangerous. It is now her favorite activity of all the after school activities she has. Thank you Sarvar for all you have shown us so far, and for all we’ll be learning in the years to come.”
