"Karim has been teaching my 9 year old son for the past 8 months and has shown to be very patient and supportive as he attempts to learn the piano. I would highly recommend Karim for both new starters and mature age students"

~ Julian, July 2024


"Karim is a very professional, patient and encouraging piano teacher. Just after a few lessons, my 6yo daughter has changed her negative altitude from previous unpleasant experiences. Apart from practical skills, I also really like the structured way of how Karim helps with consolidation of music theory."

~ Li, April 2024

"My son has piano lessons with Karim. Excellent teacher. Patient, great rapport, and is able to get my son conversing (my son is a bit on the shy side). Thanks Karim!"

~ Nicholas, July 2019

"Karim is a lovely teacher. He instructs clearly and is helpful when pointing out improvements and mistakes. I enjoy my lessons. I go home with my doubt clarified and look forward to my next lesson. He is also flexible in his lesson timings and very organised, admin wise. We are working through the book systematically. I would like to work on other pieces I like and he works towards that. He also understands when I haven't practiced thoroughly due to life, but expects improvement which is helpful for motivation.

~ Shoa, September 2019


"We were searching for a patient, dedicated piano teacher and we finally found the one. Karim is very good in the way he delivers his lessons and caters for different learners. My daughter at times does not focus and Karim always finds ways to get her back on track. The lessons are well planned and there is equal focus on the practical and music theory aspect of piano. My daughter loves her lessons and we can hopefully prepare her for future exams. Thank you Karim!"

~ Ezo, August 2018

"Karim is a very good teacher who has patience. His love of music comes through in the lessons which are always run and engaging. My daughter has progressed greatly in a few months. Karim also teaches music theory and how to read music as well as practical lessons in playing the piano. I would recommend Karim highly as a great piano teacher."

~ Sandeep, August 2018

"Our overall experience has been great with Karim. Always professional and explains everything in detail. Our child enjoys coming each week and practices regularly. She has also been learning on her own and playing top 40 songs. This shows that she can apply her learnings from Karim and learn new music. Lessons are always well structured and broken up unlearning on the piano and music theory activities . Great work, thank you!"

~ Mario, August 2018

"Our overall experience with Karim has been very positive. My daughter leaves each lessons on a positive note. I really like the structure of lessons covering both practical and music theory. Karim's patience with my daughter during each session really impresses me. My daughter loves her piano lessons and has picked up so much since she has started with Karim. Thank you!"

~ Ece, August 2018

"Karim is my third teacher I've had in two years and I feel like I am actually getting somewhere with the lessons I'm having. These lessons are well structured and the information is delivered in a very effective way. I know more than I've ever known before. My ability to read music as well as identifying other aspects of learning piano has significantly improved. It is an enjoyable experience and I look forward to each weekly lesson. Thank you Karim!"

~ Nicholas, December 2017

"Since Eva began with Karim she has gained so much confidence in herself. She continues to look forward to her lessons and her understanding in reading music and playing ability has come a long way. Karim is helpful to Eva's learning style, understanding and persistent. Definitely recommend Karim for any piano enthusiast. Thank you Karim, you are a star!"

~ Gina, December 2017


"I have been sending my 4 year old son to piano classes with Karim for the past one and half years. He is amazingly patient and a very good teacher. He always makes sure my son understood what was being taught and kept encouraging him. Definitely worth it!"

~ Ramya, November 2017

"Karim is an excellent and knowledgeable piano teacher. Deciding to take up piano fresh at a later age, Karim has introduced me to the basics very well and has continued to motivate and assist me in my learning. His lessons are well structured and enjoyable, giving me the sense of achievement and progression with each visit. I would highly recommend Karim to students who are just starting or to students who have had some piano experience up their sleeve."

~ Kevin, November 2017


"Karim is very patient with both my kids. Overall the experience has been very positive. Both children have been steadily progressing in their lessons and has helped them in being patient. The lessons are well structured and Karim gives regular activities to refresh theoretical knowledge and practice sessions. Both my children look forward to his lessons. I would definitely recommend him to others too."

~ Neetha, November 2017

The lessons are very well structured. The lessons are also fun and informative. The overall experience has been brilliant throughout. We would recommend Karim to friends, families and others at any given time."

~ Mercy, November 2017

"Karim is a really good piano teacher. His lessons are very well structured with a mixture of music practice and theory. My daughter Candice enjoys learning with him. A very important thing we found is that he is always encouraging my daughter in her learning. Candice has learnt a lot from Karim. Thank you Karim!"

"I would like to highlight the ability of Karim, who at the young age of 18 years, handles tricky situations simply but with passion making it look easy. It looks simple but you need ability and confidence to do it. He keeps the choir so steady and still. Well done!"

~ Victor (Choir Leader), July 2014 

"I've had the joy of working with Karim in our Parish Music Ministry for around 7 years now. In this time, I've seen Karim's musical talent, abilities and repertoire expand greatly. It is very comforting to know that Karim is playing the piano. No matter the challenge, he has consistently risen to and in many cases exceeded all expectations, even the last minute changes handed to us by the celebrating priest or the need to extend or shorten hymns is all accomplished in his usual calm and seamless manner."

~ Matthew (Choir Leader), June 2014


"Dear Karim, you are very dedicated at your work and you agreed to play all the hymns and songs we liked. We thank-you for making our day beautiful with the melodious and soothing way you play the piano. You agreed to have a practice and made sure the church organ, the piano everything was there, and you wanted to check the church and the sound balance. This shows that you are organised and as a bride and groom it was not stressful because we knew you took care of the music the way we wanted. We wish you all the very best in your future and Thank-you from the bottom of our hearts. Wow Karim you are a star!"

~ Aaron & Michelle, May 2014

"Dear Karim, words cannot express how grateful I am to have your amazing talent to inspire us on this sad day."

~ Jill & Family, April 2012

"It's been wonderful being involved in the choir not only for the friendly atmosphere, the fun arrangements but also for your virtuoso-like performances on the piano. The evolution and your improvement as a pianist has been remarkeable."

~ Harry, January 2012


"Dear Karim, you were fantastic last week and we just wanted to thank you for your amazing effort.

You worked so hard and your accompaniment was magnificent"
