-Demir first took an interest in music at the age of five going on to take piano lessons for nearly six years.
-At age thirteen his desire to pursue music was renewed when he began playing guitar. Though he initially did not receive any formal training he was able to teach himself advanced playing techniques and also developed a strong understanding of music theory.
-In 2010 Demir was accepted into the prestigious Berklee College of Music where he earned a Bachelor's Degree in Composition.
-Since 2011 Demir has performed and recorded throughout the East Coast with various groups ranging from Metal/Hardcore/Punk groups such as Narrow Grave, Secular Media, and Perpetuated to Chamber Ensembles who specialize in playing film scores.
As a musician one of the most important skills I have learned is how to play off of an audience and I think this is something which has extended into teaching. I have students whose personalities range from introverted to extroverted, energetic to calm and for each one of them I am able to adapt my teaching style so as to ensure they are having a good time but also learning something in the process.
My biggest musical influences include Glenn Tipton (Judas Priest), , Igor Stravinsky, J.S. Bach, Andy LaRocque (King Diamond), Rocky George (Suicidal Tnedencies), Eddie Van Halen and Chuck D (Public Enemy).
Istanbul, Ankara, Seoul, Linz, Vienna, Beijing, Moscow, St. Petersburg, London, and Glasgow among others.
So far so good. He has reliably shown up for both lessons. I gave him some direction in advance on what we would like to see in terms of Callie being able to learn and improve, and he has so far incorporated that into the lessons.
Demir is always on time and very willing to accommodate a schedule change. We have been very happy with everything so far. They just started lessons together 1 month ago. They are working well together trying to establish our son's level and needs.
Demir has chosen approaches that engage and keep my children interested in the lessons. Demir teaches all four of my children and has tailored the lessons appropriately to their ages, the pace at which they’re learning and their interests. We’ve just been in lessons two weeks, but so far our sons are engaged and interested.
