Private Music Performance Teacher

I'm Ahmad a very enthusiastic musician. I started out teaching myself guitar at the age of 12. I moved to the U.S. in 2001 and studied music for 15 years receiving my B.M. and M.M in music and audio production at San Francisco State University. I then moved to Los Angeles then studied and trained with John Mayer, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, George Lynch and many others. I have performed hundreds of concerts in the U.S. as well in Europe and the Middle East with Artists such as Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Guns N Roses, Michael Angelo Batio, Ratt, Sammy Hagar, Dokken and many others. I ranked #1 in the Slash Guitar Center competition. I was in the "list of top 5 guitar players ever" according to The Examiner, also picked as one of the best guitarists of 2013 and 2014 consecutively in the Rockwell UnScene magazine, and ranked 3rd in the Steve Vai Sam Ash Best in Shred competition.

My kids had great lessons with Ahmad. A friendly instructor with a definite love for music and teaching evident. I think he is a very approachable person for anyone nervous about improving their musical skills.

I began taking singing lessons with Ahmad from an online coupon and had a great time. My guitar playing got consistently and measurably better and I felt like I was given quality instruction at the lesson as well as good ideas for practicing at home.

Ahmad is laid back and friendly and a great instructor. Thank you!

Nicholas has been teaching my daughter vocal lessons for about 11 months and he’s fantastic!

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly.

Ms. Laverty has been my son’s private trumpet teacher since the summer of 2012. She is patient, kind and very supportive of his efforts in playing the trumpet. In large part, she is the reason that my son enjoys playing trumpet and continues to thrive as a musician.

From the beginning she tailored her lessons to include the music that my son was interested in and also added increasingly more complex music to work on and master.

Sandra has taped him playing during lessons to show him how and where he can improve in body position, quality of sound and other nuances. She regularly uses her laptop computer to show videos of performances that support the lesson and also assigns various Internet sites to view for exposure to other musicians and styles.

Sandra regularly provides opportunities for my son to perform in public. He has performed at the annual CMEA event at San Jose State University, and other smaller events where he played solo on stage. They have both joined in at a local café for practice in improvisation, as my son loves to play jazz. This has really helped in his jazz solo opportunities at school. She has also organized a quartet of student trumpet players to work together on various music pieces and then they all performed together for family and friends. This was a unique experience for the children to practice and play together and perform as a group.

My son is also interested in basketball and baseball, and Sandra has been very flexible in scheduling lessons to accommodate my son’s athletic and school schedules. After about 6 months of lessons, she offered twice a week lessons to capitalize on my son’s enthusiasm and increase the speed of musical advancement so his confidence soared and he wanted to play more because he liked doing something he felt he was good at. He kept this schedule for about a year and then back to once a week to allow for more time for other interests.

During middle school, my son played trumpet in both the Advanced Band and also Jazz Band classes. This past summer, Sandra again offered twice weekly lessons to get ready for his high school debut. As a result, he was chosen to play first chair in the high school jazz band. He was also one of only two freshmen that were accepted into the most advanced band class (also known at Wind Ensemble) at Lincoln High School.

I recommend Sandra Laverty, without reservation, for any trumpet teaching opportunity.
Daphne R.
Sandra was very helpful with my 11 year old. She taught a good mix of theory and practical experience. She helped my daughter build skills and was very encouraging.

Shannon is not your average piano teacher. She is passionate about music and her students, and she endows them with a love for music through her encouraging and inspiring approach. She doesn't just teach the pieces, she teaches musicality. Shannon really cares about her students. She has taught piano to all three of my daughters and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Julie M.
Miss Shannon M. is committed to providing excellent training in piano for students of all ages.

Shannon M. has a heart for music and specifically the piano. That heart for music shows itself in her teaching. She is an accomplished musician in her own right, playing both the piano and organ. As a teacher she is professional, yet deeply personal towards each student regardless of age or level of playing.

I have seen her in action as she teaches and also during the student recitals. I can highly recommend her to you as a teacher.

"I feel very fortunate to have found Ivan, and have benefitted from his instruction in many ways. I began taking lessons with him at the age of 60, as an intermediate piano student. Ivan has a way of understanding your skill level and goals, and teaching you how best to practice on your own. His encyclopedic knowledge of classical music enriches the experience, but he is easily versatile enough to teach jazz theory as well. Ivan encourages performance at recital, and his students are always well prepared. He is an outstanding musician who frequently performs in public. Give yourself over to Ivan’s instruction and improve your technique, understanding of theory, sight reading, and knowledge of classical music. You will enjoy playing the piano more than ever."

"Since I was in high school, I’ve always wanted to develop my skills as a piano player, drummer, or guitarist. I had a ways to go, and Greg was assigned to help me grow in our youth worship team. Out of the years I spent there, Greg was the best teacher I had! Hands on training, coherent instructions, and constructive feedback from our sessions were what made me into the musician I am today. Greg Campbell is the best!"

"Coren is not only an amazing vocal coach, shes an amazing human being. I started with Coren as a very timid, cautious singer and now I perform all over Las Vegas and I love what I do! I was afraid that my voice could not improve and that I would never have the power and freedom in my voice that i've always wanted but with some patience and hard work Coren got me there! no matter what type of learner you are, Coren has a technique that will work for you. The first time I sat in on my boyfriend's lesson and I heard how much he had improved I was blown away and I knew I wanted to take lessons. Coren teaches you that everyone can sing and its just a matter of training the muscles you need to do it! For me, thinking about it that way made it a lot less intimidating. She teaches everyone from the kiddos and beginners (she loves kids and they love her!) to the grown ups and pros! No matter how hard i've been on myself coren has never given up on me and I can now say I am not afraid to dream because I know it is possible! I've been with Coren for almost 5 years and for as long as i'm singing she'll be where I stay! If you're serious about singing, Coren will get you wherever you want to go! Thank you for everything Coren!"
