Private Guitar Teacher

Guitar students start with five subjects.

1) Technique is concerned with the development of the physical mechanics involved in playing the instrument.

2) Scales are a part of basic music vocabulary and building blocks of the musical language.

3) Chords are also basic vocabulary of the musical language.

4) Note reading is not required for every student. It really depends on the students' goals. However, I strongly encourage everyone learn to read musical notation, (more than tablature). Literacy in reading music is analogous to literacy in reading in our English language. Can you imagine how much smaller our world would be if we couldn't read?

5) Songs utilize the skills and concepts of all the previously mentioned subjects and are the goal of studying music. The student chooses what songs they want to play, guided by my suggestions; Jazz, rock, blues, country, bluegrass, R &B - "How deep is the ocean, how high is the sky?"

A beginning student will practice all

Great teacher, very patient and knows how to teach vocal technique.

Taylor was so patient and kind with our 6 year old son. He was very accommodating and explained in simple terms the beginning of playing the electric guitar. He was kind and soft spoken which helped with an energetic 6 year old. He was able to redirect my son’s attention when he would wonder. I am so glad we picked him as our son’s instructor.

My experience with Kathy has been great. It's been roughly five months and I learned a lot and I'm also much more confident to sing. Learning the right techniques is crucial. Kathy is extremely patient and she adapts the classes to the student goals and aspirations. English is not my first language and she was also always very respectful and patient in explaining everything twice or maybe three times until I get it.
Kathleen
Kathryn has a terrific demeanor, and provides clear, thoughtful suggestions for technique!
Rupesh G.
I have two daughters who took piano and voice lessons with Kathy for more than 6 years. Kathy is a very positive person who is passionate about music, and this resulted in lessons that were uplifting and enjoyable. Looking back on their time with Kathy, it is amazing that not once in 6 years did I feel that she was snappy or short or just going through the motions. Kathy had a positive impact on my children and their love of music, and I highly recommend her as an instructor.

I have a very practical approach to teaching guitar! I was taught how to play by ear first, at 2 years old and later studied music theory to connect the dots. I love to find patterns and predictability in music to make it easy to navigate through. If you feel like you wouldnt succeed in a traditional music lesson setting, join me for discovery, epiphanies and “Aha!” moments! I specialize in Worship Music and Worship band dynamics and theories however I strive to teach students exactly what they want to learn to encourage the idea that we tend to want to practice things we like or we’re good at! Let’s see what your strengths are and how to explore hidden talents to meet your goals!

"My wife and i have been taking guitar classes from Ahmad for couple months now. I've always wanted to play a musical instrument but thought it was too late in my life to pick up one. So one day my wife looked up guitar lessons in the By Area and Ahmad showed up with amazing reviews.

I took a private lesson from Ahmad and rest is history. Taking guitar lessons as a couple can be very rewarding. Ahmad is very patient, knowledgeable and passionate about guitar. He took his time with my wife and made sure we were on the same page before we moved on. Either you are a true beginner like us or a professional, you will learn so much from Ahmad."

"Ahmad is incredible!! I could tell from day one he was going to make a huge difference in my guitar playing. His lessons are prepared in advance so very little time is spent penciling out lesson material. His recording/teaching studio is a very clean and professional, and his super well organized library of teaching materials allows us to maximize our learning time. I love playing his teaching material! None of the guys I took lessons from before had such an effective approach. I have so much fun with it! His lessons have introduced me to various pop, rock, country, metal, and jazz concepts from very popular musicians. He has a unique way of teaching rhythm that has helped me capture phrasing and keep songs in time. Recently I've started taking his harmony classes. These classes have given me the knowledge to confidently play with other musicians and create great music. I would highly recommend Ahmad for anyone that desires to learn more about the guitar. I am moving back to Arizona for work (and sun!). I wish I could take him with me!!"

"Joe taught both my kids and made it a wonderful experience

We wanted our son and daughter to have an appreciation of music and at the same time enjoy the experience. Joe was the perfect solution. He has the ability to reach out to kids and make them feel comfortable. He encouraged them to select the music they enjoyed and then molded his lessons around their interest. We didn't really need to push them to practice, they actually enjoyed it. This had not been the case at other organizations, where it was always a chore to have them practice."

How to Read Guitar Chords

If you're beginning to learn how to play guitar, chances are you'll want to get started by learning a handful of chords. Learning how to read guitar chords is a great way to get familiar with guitar notation and get used to your instrument. A chord is a group of notes that makes a harmony when played all together. On guitar, you can strum chords to accompany a melody that you or someone else are singing, or more advanced players might incorporate chords with single notes for a more complex so …
