I met Asaf Blasberg at the International Keyboard Institute and Festival. Because his approach to classical music was so impressive in terms of musicality, I decided to get a second lesson with him. A connection started and we decided to work together at his studio. He is preparing me for the Juilliard audition in piano performance for the Master Degree program. Mr. Blasberg is not only an accomplished concert pianist with an amazing musicality, he is also an amazing teacher and knows exactly how to overcome any difficulty in any music pieces to help the student. Thanks to his remarkable repertoire, Mr. Blasberg can show different pieces connected to explain the atmosphere of your own piece. I highly recommend Asaf Blasberg for any level from amateurs to professionals. I guarantee that you will have an unforgettable experience and your way of playing will improve drastically thanks to his amazing technique.

I am an amateur pianist. I first came to Asaf because of difficulty with fingering in the Arensky D minor Piano Trio. He readily solved that within minutes and I continued lessons with him for several years. His musicianship is impeccable and his enthusiasm is contagious. His skill at imparting his very impressive knowledge (both musical and technical) is exceedingly high. Although critical at times, he always has something nice to say about your playing. I may be exhausted after a lesson, but I always have a great time!
Asaf is a wonderful piano instructor. I came to Asaf to better my technique, and he has helped me tremendously, particularly with interpretation and voicing. He is great for working out difficult fingerings and getting to the true character of the piece. He is very sincere, and his enthusiasm and love for music comes across in his teaching. He makes learning and improvement fun and effective.
