Setareh Saremi

<- Our Teachers[/button]

Setareh has been fascinated with music since Kindergarten, when she was enrolled in the Orff program and later a marching band in grade 1. After years of piano lessons, she went on to obtain a Music degree from UBC, and began teaching. Setareh found that music was an incredible way to express oneself, and decided she wanted to pass on this ability to her students.

To be able to teach self expression through music is a great gift.
With her multi-lingual fluency in English, Farsi and Japanese, Setareh offers students the option of learning in their native language, or expanding the knowledge of others. Over the years, she has learned to be flexible and adaptable to the needs of each student in learning music and playing the piano. As much as she has taught them, they have taught her.

I've learned so much from my students. The most important thing being the incredible range of differences each person has when it comes to learning something new.
Setareh used to be in a Gamelan ensemble, a traditional Indonesian ensemble featuring instruments such as metallophones, xylophones, drums, gongs and bamboo flutes, and aspires to partake in something so culturally different once more.

In her spare time, she enjoys reading, biking, hiking, cooking, and of course anything to do with music.
