Private Electric Guitar Teacher

I have been teaching electric guitar for the last 5 years. I can help you learn more about open/bar chords, finger picking, palm muting, scales, power chords, tone shaping and soloing/improvisation. We can also work on learning your favorite tunes and maybe writing of some of your own! I am here to help you achieve your goals as a guitar player.

Excellent explanations of the subject matter and spot-on answers to all of my questions. Great structure to the session and super productive.

Highest recommendation!
Brian
Jeff really is an amazing instructor. Until a couple months ago, coincidently when I began my lessons with him, if you asked me if I sang you would've gotten a hard no in response. Not because I didn't have it in me, but because I didn't ever have the confidence to even try. Now not only am I actually learning how to sing, but I'm gaining the confidence I need as well.

To sum it up, Jeff's easygoing demeanor, vast knowledge, and immense skill come together to really meet the client where they are at.

easy way to learn, Jeff is patient and explains things well

Whether you're a beginner, an intermediate or advanced, my electric guitar lessons cater to all!

All ages are welcome! We will definitely learn songs, but in order to truly become an amazing musician you must also focus on building strong technique. Taking lessons with me will ensure that you’ll be able to learn songs and parts by ear. No more tabs! Here’s what we’ll focus on:
- building technique
- transcribing songs and solos
- learning theory
- ear training
- learning to read

Feel free to message me at any time if you have any questions!

About Noah

Hello and thank you for showing interest in lessons with me! My name is Noah and I’ve been a musician for 15 years.

Noah is the best guitar instructor I’ve ever had. As a self taught guitarist I needed some help with the basics, but was also ready to learn some more advanced topics. Noah ensured every lesson was interesting and engaging even when covering simple topics. He also made the more complex topics easy to understand. He was patient and helped me become a better guitarist and musician I ever would have become on my own.
James Michael
As an adult, I came to him as a complete novice, and since day one Noah has been very patient and encouraging- balancing music theory with songs that interest me. He's been willing to adapt to my needs in order to accommodate my goals and expectations. A few months later, I can confidently say that I've exceeded all of my goals, and constantly advancing past what I thought I was capable of.

Thanks Noah!
Colleen
I've only had my first lesson, and I'm a complete novice with the guitar (I'm an adult with some limited musical background). Noah asked me about my goals and musical interests so he could tailor the class to meet my needs. He taught me how to tune the guitar before getting into chords, finger placement, strumming technique, and reading the tabs. Throughout the class, he was incredibly patient, encouraging, and explained everything very clearly without over-complicating the topics. He gave me written "homework" to practice (which I now understand how to read!!). I'm really psyched for my next lesson and pleased that I chose Noah for my instructor.

Online Electric Guitar Teacher

Hello and welcome! I started teaching guitar lessons after school in 6th grade to fellow students and our teachers alike. From the very beginning, my ethos has been centered around striving to serve the individual and helping them to achieve their goals. I've only become more passionate about that over the course of almost 20 years of teaching and I look forward to working with you!

I have been a touring and studio musician as well as a musical director and record producer for over ten years on electric and acoustic guitar, pedal steel, bass guitar and singing. I'm passionate about teaching YOU, not just teaching notes or chords or licks. Everyone learns differently and I look forward to creating for you what all of my amazing teachers have created for me over 25 years of learning: a safe space to let your guard down, be who you are and work your hardest to be your best.

About Ryan

Hello! I have been a studio and touring musician for over a decade. Currently, I play guitar and pedal steel as well as background vocals for Amos Lee, Heather Maloney, Seth Glier and many more.

Hello there! I am a graduate of the Eastman School of Music with a degree in jazz guitar. I've played in more bands than I can remember, and have been a professional freelance musician since the age of 16.

I am adept at all contemporary styles, can teach you jazz improvisation, rock improvisation, comping styles of the greats, really whatever you want to learn I can show you. If you are getting ready for auditions I can help with that. Basically I'm your go to guy for most things guitar. If you want to talk pedals, ask how a guy gets a sound I'm your guy.

I have a "music is easy" mantra that really goes to say that all music can be broken down and simplified in concrete ways that make it conceivable to anyone.

Blake is a great instructor. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed right away. He went at the pace I needed (glacial) and encouraged me every step of the way. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Max
Blake is a seasoned musician with experience in just about every genre imaginable. Whether it's technique, harmony, theory or aural skills, he can explain any seemingly difficult idea in a concise, logical way. With all the knowledge of a conservatory trained guitarist and gigging musician, he's a down to earth teacher who simply loves music and is passionate about sharing it with his students.

Blake is a dedicated teacher who helped me improve right away! I wasn't at all sure what I wanted (or needed) to work on next but he picked up right away what was best for me. So grateful to have worked with him.

Started with some basics and built on that. Was very helpful in showing me tuning, proper hand positioning, and how to improve my fingering (those pesky notes). Got a lot for the first class and enough homework to keep me busy! Will be meeting again next week.

"Ahmad brought my playing to a new level in a very short period of time. I had been stuck and not making much progress with my improvisational skills for the better part of a year when I first started lessons with him. I was impressed by his ability to quickly analyze my playing and knowledge and suggest some focus areas. After working on various intervals, I began to feel a magnetic pull in my fingers when playing. The intervals enabled me to make the connection between the licks and lines in my head and the physical fret board on the fly during improvisational sessions.

Ahmad is extremely organized. He has exercises for every topic imaginable. His exercises are clearly written with specifics on how to effectively practice them, and they progress in an incremental and logical fashion. This level of organization allows you to get the most out of your time with Ahmad. He can quickly retrieve exercises for a topic, without having to stop and think, or waste time on transcription.

I leave every lesson with more than enough material to keep me busy. Ahmad has been very flexible working with me and changes that arise in my schedule. On top of all of this, Ahmad is a genuinely pleasant person to spend time with and I really look forward to our time together. For me, I was an intermediate player looking to get to the next step. But I'm confident that Ahmad could accelerate anyone's playing at any level."

"If you're thinking about taking lessons from Ahmad, do it. For years I thought I just couldn't play the guitar. I tried learning online, but nothing stuck. I even took a group class, which was better than trying to learn online, but I still wasn't satisfied. So, I decided to look into private lessons, even though I was nervous about the one-on-one dynamic. For years I have struggled with performance anxiety and was afraid that would prevent me from ever really learning the guitar and playing with other people. I discussed this with Ahmad before and at my first lesson. I can't tell you how amazing it felt a few months later when we played a song together and I had no fear or anxiety.

I credit this to the fun and relaxing atmosphere Ahmad has created in his studio space which makes it easy to learn, ask questions and enjoy my lessons. He has a deep passion for music which is infectious. I leave every lesson feeling energized and excited to work on my new material.

If you're interested in learning how to play the guitar or improve your skills, give Ahmad a shot. You'll be so glad you did. Before, I thought I just couldn't learn how to play the guitar, now I'm looking forward to years of honing my skills, playing with friends and experiencing the joy of creating music."
