Afshin Effati – Cello, Violin, Viola, Piano
Afshin has over a decade of experience teaching cello, violin, viola and piano in both group and private lessons; his students participate often in performances, recitals, and community events. He prides himself on creative, interesting methods, approaches and ideas to keep students engaged in their studies. As an officially certified Advanced Orff Instructor, Afshin’s mission is to introduce musicianship to young students in a fun and creative way, involving them in the process of making music in an enjoyable way.
Afshin’s special interest in the production of music for children resulted in an album entitled “Childhood Desires”, which simplified some of his favorite rock and metal songs by rearranging them into pieces played on Orff instruments. He has also compiled the repertoire book “Childish Minimals”, which contains arrangements of the songs from the album.
