If I were to say 15 years on the violin, that would be a shocking time. I did earn my Bachelor’s Degree in Music where I received most of my education in both violin and piano. In my perspective, the violin is such an intricate instrument and I am blessed to work with students in wanting to learn violin. It’s true where putting the hard work in violin takes you where you need to be. It does require Practice! I am willing to work with the student and help them grow in advancing this instrument. Let’s keep in touch!

I hold a Masters of Music from Manhattan School of Music where I studied Jazz Saxophone with Bob Mintzer and Composition from Dr. Mark Stambaugh. My experience as a performer ranges from playing in Jazz Clubs in New York City, to traveling the world on Carnival Cruise Lines, and orchestra Pitts in Las Vegas.

Robert
Thanks for letting me provide a reference for Alex. I have taken alto sax lessons from him over the years, starting about 4-5 years ago. Alex is a great musician and teacher. Each lesson was consistently structured for: sound quality and listening, technical work and reading, duets, and improvisation. Rather than heavy music theory, he would instead provide routines to reinforce these concepts. He was always patient, and emphasized what I did well, with subtle redirection to correct problems. I definitely improved under his guidance and teaching.

The only reason I stopped seeing him was that my job became very demanding, and I could not devote enough time to practice and justify the time and cost of lessons. But even when I showed up unprepared, he was understanding and flexible to work with me.

If it would have been possible to have Alex come to me, I would have welcomed that.

My lessons create a fun and motivational learning environment that promotes goal setting, good habits, positive self esteem based on tangible accomplishments, and an appreciation for the rewards of diligence and perseverance.

My services include music lessons in trumpet, jazz improvisation, music theory, jazz theory, and audition preparation.

I am currently the Principal Trumpeter in the Lyric Opera of Chicago Orchestra, Assistant Principal Trumpet with the Grant Park Summer Music Festival Orchestra, Principal Trumpet with the Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra, and former Assistant Principal Trumpet with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra. I have performed with the Chicago Symphony and Milwaukee Symphony.

I Hold a Doctorate of Musical Arts degree from the University of South Carolina and I am a certified band director with 5 years band directing experience.

It was very detailed instruction. He provided accurate advice and easy-to-understand examples. His breathing technique, musicality and technique for expression were very helpful. And, needless to say, he had a wonderful personality.

"Simply put, Ahmad is an amazing guitarist and an excellent teacher. He demonstrates, he guides, he gets to know his students and what they are looking for in a guitar lesson, and then he delivers 100 fold. I've been studying with Ahmad on and off for about eight months. He devotes beyond the lesson time and provides at home continued study materials and jam tracks. My lead playing has greatly improved and I am learning chord positions I never knew existed. Not only is he helping me get to the next level in my guitar playing, he's made a number of introductions for me. He is very patient, with a kind heart and immense talent, which he shares freely with his students. You or your child will certainly get your money's worth, and have a great time while learning. I highly recommend Ahmad."

5 Bad Habits That Are Wrecking Your Vocal Cords

You may have heard the comparison between musicians and athletes before. Just like great sports players have to prepare their bodies and minds, truly mastering your instrument requires efficient warm-ups, practice and passion. Let one little bad habit slip into your routine, and you might end up in trouble. Particularly as you grow older, bad habits can set your progress back before you even notice it. And for singers, repeating those tendencies may even leave you with permanent vocal cord da …
