After having been a student of Ahmad's for over a year now, I can earnestly say he is a quality instructor unlike any I've had before. He shapes each individual class specifically to what your guitar goals are, creating incredibly detailed and thorough handouts and exercises to help you get there. I am the type of student who learns best with a well-defined regime laid out clearly in front of me. His handouts are a perfect match for my learning style and you can tell the years of experience and knowledge that has gone into creating each one. He is also a very adaptive teacher helping me surpass some rhythm barriers in unique and creative ways. He had helped me gain a new appreciation and understanding for music theory and most importantly he helps keep it fun.

When my son moved to the area, he began playing guitar for the first time. His job kept him very busy, so he wanted to find a guitar instructor where his time would be well spent. Below is his review of Ahmad.

You would be hard-pressed to find an instructor as excellent as Ahmad. With his help, I made an incredible amount of progress on guitar in a matter of months. His lessons are precise and organized, and I always left the lesson feeling like I learned a ton of new stuff. He strikes a great balance between requiring excellence as well as giving encouragement and making sure it's always fun. In a few months, I went from knowing close to nothing about music to being able to play my favorite songs from start to finish. As I have left the area, I will miss Ahmad's lessons, but I'm thankful for getting him to start my journey into the world of music!
Ryan
If you are ready to embark on the journey of mastering the guitar and learning to truly express yourself through music, you will not find a more dedicated, enthusiastic and organized teacher than Ahmad
Ahmad has devoted his life to the art and methodology of teaching the guitar to others. It's not about him and how well he can play or his personal aspirations to be musician. There is no intimidating showing off during lessons - only a sincere desire to be the best teacher he can be. I've always been self-conscious playing in front of great guitar players, but Ahmad creates a safe environment for me to learn and grow as a player.
Ahmad's experience has given him true expertise and it shows in his ability to meet students exactly where they are at - no matter what their experience level. His years of teaching experience and vast, meticulously organized archive of personally-created handouts are perfect for whatever the moment calls for. That is a world of difference from one-size-fits all online materials I've struggled with in the past. Or, unprepared teachers who "wing it" each lesson.
My window of opportunity to be a rock star closed many years ago, if I ever had one. While I am a dedicated guitar student, work and family come before practice and lessons. Ahmad has been extremely accommodating in allowing me to take lessons as frequently or infrequently as my schedule allows. Yet, he always keeps me making progress and never lets me stall out or drift away from my commitment to learn.
Great teachers are hard to find. I discovered Ahmad through searching online and reading his reviews. After over 3 years of studying with him, I know I have a found a superb teacher and an inspiring musical mentor. Begin the journey!

Private Classical Piano Teacher

I enjoy finding the right balance of foundational curriculum with the interests and goals of the student. Other than learning how to read music notation with piano through repertoire, other things I incorporate are composition, improvisation, ear training, music theory, music history, fun creative projects, and other aspects when necessary.

Learning about each student in detail is important for me to tailor my curriculum for them to grow and learn to the best of their ability. I am not strictly classical, I enjoy teaching many genres of music.

With a master's in Piano pedagogy, I am versed in many teaching methods, group, private, semi-private, and I have taught music theory including AP Music Theory prep. I can teach piano from no experience to college-level entrance to Music Program.

Private Classical Piano Teacher

I have been teaching private piano lessons in the East Valley for the past 6 years. I have experience with both the very young and very wise; brand new beginners and those with prior experience. Our goals are to develop a long lasting connection with piano by learning to set goals, problem solve, and build good practice habits. We will balance our study between theory, technic and artistry to become performers. I primarily teach classical piano, but am happy to branch out to pop and jazz with students after we have a strong foundation built up.

She doesn’t waste time and gets right to the lesson immediately. She is extremely knowledgeable and capable at playing and teaching piano. She’s the only teacher who took the time to correct my son’s hand positioning on the keyboard. She’s been very flexible with our schedule as well. I would recommend Celine to anyone who wants to learn piano at any level."

"I've been learning from Aaron for about 4-5 years now. Hands down the best teacher I've had. He managed to explain the theory behind every piece according to level the student is at and explains it amazingly. In a world where most people just want to learn to play, he ensures that they understand the intrinsic theory behind the pieces. He's helped me with arranging pieces, composing, and learning. Not to mention that he is quite possibly the most versatile person I've met who can do literally anything from writing to music production. Besides piano, he's helped me with being organized and maximizing my productivity. He brings a unique approach to piano and practice that I think has helped me tremendously."
