I am a guitarist, Harmonica player, composer, arranger, and music teacher. Music is my life, and I am trying to improve my skills every day and never give up.
I always try to find easy ways to teach music and help my students to take their music to the next level.

Iman started playing rock and blues guitar when he was 17, then he got his music diploma in Guitar and passed Jazz composition course with Berklee online.

Also, Iman is accredited by bluesharmonica.com and David Barrett as a blues harmonica instructor.

He founded Permonica Band – Persian Harmonica Band – in 2011, and has had many performances from that time. He is one of the pioneers in Iran’s harmonica.
Iman moved to Canada in 2016 and started working as a music instructor, composer, arranger and band leader.
He has performed several times with Permonica band and participated in two festivals.

 “I am trying to introduce my style in music performance which is influenced by my middle eastern roots” Iman

My goal is to make a big and professional harmonica ensemble for Canada in near future and make Canada to one of the best places for the harmonica players and harmonica enthusiasts.

Il y a quelques années, en parcourant Internet, pour enrichir mon site harmonicacontact avec de nouveaux liens, j'ai trouvé un portail de l'harmonica en Iran.L'idée d'imaginer l'harmonica en Iran, les portes que cela pouvait ouvrir à l'harmonica, peut être à de nouveaux styles de musique: c'était comme un nouveau trésor. Alors quand j'ai découvert la pageharmonicaevents sur Facebook, j'ai fait le lien avec Iman Rahimipour. L'initiative de Iman était dans le même esprit que l'agenda d'harmonica dont j'ai lancé l'idée pour la Francophonie en Europe, et que je souhaiterai développer pour le monde entier.
Son ouverture d'esprit, ses idées et initiatives en Iran et au delà des frontières pour développer l'harmonica, et communiquer au travers de la musique, furent autant de raisons qui m'ont données envie de faire sa connaissance. Fin décembre 2013 je prenais donc contact avec Iman pour parler de harmonicaevents. Peut être, un jour, nous pourrions faire quelque chose de magique ensemble pour l'harmonica... Le plaisir de la rencontre Internet a été immédiat et réciproque. Je pensais déjà à cet entretien. J'espère que vous aurez autant de plaisir à le lire, que moi à le faire avec
