Music Instrument(s) Taught: Guitar, Piano, Trumpet, Voice
My name is Kiran – I grew up surrounded by an eclectic range of music ranging from traditional middle eastern songs to American folk music to Michael Jackson. I have spent most of my time seriously studying Jazz, European Classical and music from Brazil. I play piano, organ, trumpet, guitar, drums and sing. After graduating high school I was awarded a scholarship to study music at the prestigious Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California. I have since studied at Portland State and privately with many accomplished and amazing teachers. I love to teach all ages and abilities as I believe that teaching is a beautiful and necessary practice for all aspiring professional musicians such as myself. As one of my mentors would frequently remind me, “you can’t keep it unless you give it away”. My goal in teaching is to use whatever knowledge and skills I have to help support and enhance the lives of my students and the people around me. In my spare time I love to play basketball, boxing, being outdoors and reading. I teach piano, guitar, voice and trumpet.
Kiran is currently accepting new students.
