I am Amir Karimi. I was born on August 25, 1992 and started my artistic activity in 2004. First, I took advantage of Teacher Firouz Vissanlou's classes for 1 year, and then I participated in the course of Teacher Babak Ajdari during 2 years. I also followed indirectly the training courses of Germany's best guitar teachers, Mr. Peter Fisher and Mrs. Laura Schmaickel. I started learning the Pop and Classical styles for 2 years with Teacher Mostafa Fardipour. In the meantime, I have passed further training courses of musical notation and music theory with Teachers such as Sina Behrouzfar and Akbar Yavarian. In 2010 I started seriously and continuously teaching music and now I teach guitar and Classical music courses in the best schools of Isfahan.
I have a BA in software engineering, but I have always given priority to music in my professional life. I have devoted most of my programs and time to music education and various activities in this field. I have already participated in several concerts and I now have a good experience on this. Along with ongoing participation in the courses of prominent teachers and musicians from around the world such as Mrs. Leili Afshar, I have always tried to update my knowledge.
Alongside my main work and teaching activities, I spent part of my time studying and doing massive research effort on different branches of music including styles and playing methodologies. The result of these efforts accompanied by my creativity and personal knowledge led to the creation of a new unique method in this field.
As a result, I tried to register my researches and innovations. In the winter of 2014, I began writing a book in this area. In the summer of 2015, I published the book entitled "Guitar Finger-picking technique: a new guitar playing ability". Currently I am considered the founder of this technique.
I take advantage of known and international books and sources in my teaching. I have always tried to combine the most recent music sources around the world and the rich music of Iran. To this end, the results of these efforts are also evident in the arrangements of the music pieces published in my book.
I believe that the teaching of music must be a dynamic current, and we have never to be satisfied with our current knowledge. I always try to use newer methods and sources of teaching in this field.
