Overview

I started playing the piano at age 12. After one year of private lessons, I got accepted to Bilkent University Faculty of Performing Arts with full scholarship. After 5 years there, I went to Vienna Conservatory to study with Prof. Roland Batik. In 2012, I came to US to study at Berklee College of Music. I finished 5-year dual major program of Film Scoring and Electronic Production/Design in 2 years.
I have performed at numerous venues, both solo and with symphony orchestras, and thought many students.

Teaching Philosophy

Most important virtues I try to equip my students with are an appreciation and taste for good music, and the ability to self-teach. Music theory and ear-training goes in hand-to-hand with playing the instrument itself.

Method-wise, I make a plan with the student, set short and long term goals. This plan usually starts with building the basic technical skills, goes on with playing the pieces student likes and understanding the pieces, styles and genres. Then comes improvisation.
