It's been almost two years since I've started attending his classes. There was a time when I was looking for a piano teacher who could teach me jazz standards and the art of improvisation, but most teachers I contacted, offered courses in only classical music. Mr. Rythem's class has benefitted me a lot. I have made quite some progress and have a whole new dimension of looking towards music. He has also taught me some techniques on the keyboard as well as music theories that help me whenever I play something. He helped me complete my Trinity grade 7 and 8 exams. The best thing about sir is that he is humble, polite, humorous and an amazing teacher. I've seen him teach beginner students and advanced students and caters to each student's needs individually. Even during online classes, he adjusts the camera in an angle from where one can see his hands, which makes learning a lot easier. I still look forward to his classes every week.

Sir is an excellent mentor who's passion for piano is highly commendable . His dedication towards teaching has reflected in the extreme improvement in my piano skills which led to me scoring good marks in my grade exams. It is an honour learning from you, thank you sir

well my experience have been great and to be honest satisfying. he has vast knowledge of music fundamentals and of them practically. he has a natural ear for music , he took 5 min and figured out and improved on a song. he offers a good guidance and provides the help needed to grow as a pianist, I've had many piano teachers but none of them i found truly helpful , and eventually stopped piano. i tried once more with rhythem and have grown ever since. he's sometimes late by 5 min thats his only downside if you can bear that then go for him definitely he'll be a great help .

I am a 15 year old. I started learning from Rhythm Sir about 2 months back and it's been a great experience. I feel I've learnt a lot and enjoy my classes. He teaches music with a very broad open perspective and an all rounder music learning.

An excellent teacher, he explains the concepts very well and makes sure that the student understands the concepts properly.Even though I has been learning music for the last 2 years, it is only now,since I started learning with him, that I have started enjoying music.

Rythem is a great pianist and mentor. I'm totally satisfied with the lessons provided by him. He makes music learning fun and quite easy. One more thing I have realised is that you would not only become a great pianist but a great musician too, which is equally important. He is a very humble and friendly person. I definitely recommend everyone taking lessons from him! - Vaibhav

I have been learning piano for almost 1.5 years or so from Rythem and I must say that I am really happy with the lessons. I got his reference through a mutual friend. He is really a creative musician and a patient teacher. He not only focuses on the syllabus but also believes in working on your weaknesses and shares his musical experience frequently. I never imagined that I would improve exponentially during the time I was looking for a good piano educator after being unsatisfied with my earlier mentors. He is not only a great pianist but a great person. By taking lessons from him, one will develop great musicianship and maturity towards music. I highly recommend him for piano lessons.
