My son has only recently started taking lessons from Ahmad, but we are all impressed! He is so kind, friendly, and encouraging of my energetic 7 year old and is able to keep him focused, motivated, and learning for the whole 30 minutes. Working with little kids isn't easy, but Ahmad is a natural.
Marty
I've been taking lessons from Ahmad for a few months now. It's great. He adapts himself well to my pace. There's a good balance between music theory, real world examples, and practice exercises in his lessons. I really feel I'm learning from someone who has an incredible amount of knowledge and experience.
Katie
My family gifted me lessons with Ahmad and I'm so glad they did! Ahmad is really friendly, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and encouraging. He knows just how to keep a beginner, like me, motivated and I'm sure he could help folks with experience improve upon their skills. He has worked with me on songs that I really love, which makes practice fun. He makes sure you get the most out of the sessions. I'm even continuing with lessons after the gift period is over.

Private Bluegrass Guitar Teacher

I want you or your child to love and enjoy music as much as I do! No two people learn in exactly the same way so I like to work with my students to establish their own personal goals and cater my lessons to those goals. I also am a big advocate of teaching people to play by ear using ear training methods combined with music reading skills and music theory.

About Rusty

I started playing Bass for my church at the age of 17. After graduating High School I Started purusing a degree in Theatre & Vocal Performance at Central Arizona College. I was selected twice to compete in the KCACTF based on performances in musicals and was accepted into the Advanced Jazz Choir in

I consider myself an intermediate guitar player. I know a few chords, and have learned a few songs, but I didn’t really understand how to improvise. Rusty is a great teacher and has really helped me understand various aspects of music theory. I have definitely improved as a guitarist and a musician. I highly recommend Rusty for all skill levels
Joel
Awesome teacher, very friendly, fun, and helpful. Really inspired me to keep learning more!
James
Taught my granddaughter guitar twice a week for around 6 months and he was great. He even helped us pick out a guitar for her birthday that she fell in love with because it was purple. She can even play by ear now! We also loved going to see him perform, he has a fantastic voice an a big presence on stage! She'd still be doing lessons with him now if we had the time!

Private Bluegrass Guitar Teacher

I started playing acoustic guitar when I was seven years old. I have been playing and teaching mostly bluegrass, old time, Irish, blues, and swing jazz styles for many years. I have taught both privately and have also done various workshops at festivals. I have taught guitar multiple years for instance at the Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival in PA.
My students learn to have fun with music. Students can work on rhythms, melodies, improvisation, song writing, getting into and/or hanging on in a jam session, etc.

About Tara

I have a Masters in Education as well as having spent many years performing, teaching in one on one and group settings both privately and at music camps and festivals. I play and teach bluegrass, old time, Irish, and swing jazz styles. I like my students to really enjoy playing music and their less

What makes my lessons unique is rather than follow a strict curriculum where I just teach the student a bunch of songs they don’t want to learn. I cater to the interests and needs of the student. So if you want to write songs we will practice creative exercises, if you want to learn covers to play in a band or solo act we will learn the songs you want to learn. I will teach at your skill level and go at whatever pace you feel comfortable with so that I can maximize your learning experience!

About Chris

My name is Chris, I have been playing music for 10 years now! It is definitely my passion! I like all genres of music so you will not be judged by your interest. I am always continuing to learn new things myself and have definitely experienced the the journey from beginner to where I am now. So don

I just recently started with Dee. She is doing a great job of helping me realistically assess my performance, and constructively set goals to improve the aspects that need work. It's been fun and very helpful.
Bonnie
Our 8 year old son had his first Guitar lesson with Dee this past weekend, and she was amazing. She wasted no time getting down to brass tacks with our son, showing him the various parts of the guitar, how to hold it and within minutes he knew two chords. She was able to keep our kiddo engaged, offered great praise and positive feedback/reinforcement and kept him on task for the entire 45 minute lesson. We could not be happier and cannot wait to see what he learns during his next lessons with her!

I am a intermediate guitar player and within a few lessons with Lucian I was given tools to work on and practice for months to improve my skills and technique/ approach to playing. I would recommend his lessons to ANYONE looking to improve!"

7 Easy Bluegrass Songs on Guitar

Even beginners can start playing a little bluegrass guitar. Music teacher Matthew K. shares a selection of his favorite easy bluegrass guitar songs... When I first listened to bluegrass music, I knew I had to learn the guitar parts. They are very intricate and fun! The patterns weave in and out of each other, creating a sound that is unique to the genre. It can be a daunting sound for any beginner - and it may seem impossible at first - but remember, everyone has to start at the beginning …
