Music is a Language and I love speaking it. My mission is to help musicians and music lovers see music in a new light. Unlike many musical systems which teach memorization of rules, I aim to rather give you the tools to empower you in using music in both an effective and practical way, ultimately enjoying the playing and making of music.

"As a teenager passionate about music, I couldn’t have asked for a more inspiring music teacher. His dedication to nurturing my musical interests is evident in every lesson. He not only teaches piano and music theory with expertise but also encourages me to dive into composition and orchestration.

What sets Dr. Daniel apart is his commitment to helping me grasp intricate musical concepts, while making the learning process very enjoyable. I thoroughly enjoyed the orchestration workshop that I participated in, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to learn from established musicians.

Dr. Daniel’s approach is very friendly, and he keeps inspiring me to follow my passion in music. I’m thankful for the skills I’ve gained under his guidance."


"Daniel Mehdizadeh is an engaging, skilled teacher. I've been impressed with how he supported our daughter when she was 17 to prepare for her RCM level 8 theory exam (which she did very well on) and how he nurtured her aspirations to be a composer. She is now a 3rd year university student studying music composition."
