Kianoush's teaching style focuses on student growth, and his expectations as the instructor are adjusted for the student's goals. He works with each student on their own level and adjusts as needed with other supplemental resources. Each student is an individual, so he utilizes as many resources as possible to help them achieve their goals and become the best musicians they can be!

Beginner students start with the fundamentals, like how to hold the ney correctly, how to get sound out of it, breath control, finger placement, reading music, rhythm, and learning simple songs. Intermediate and advanced students continue to progress with increased proficiency in techniques, Persian radif, and significant Persian repertoire.

Students at all levels will be given a repertoire selection from multiple eras of music (Traditional, Folk, Radif) to study and perfect.
