I've been taking lessons from Steven for I think two years now and he's helped me so much not only in reading music but also in ear training and in my song writing. He's incredibly patient and fun to work with. He also has a really nice cat.

I understand it's easy to lose drive when you're constantly drilling scales and fingering. I try to frame all of my lessons in reference to what music really is: the creation of songs. Through composition, my students won't just learn scale and chord structure, but they'll organically develop these skills while writing their own songs and building their personal portfolio.

About Peter

Over the past 10 years, I've worked as a professional touring musician (singer, guitarist, pianist) for the rock band, Inside Switch. I studied piano at the Dallas, Texas School of Music. I also attended the James Madison University music program. I have played piano for 20 years and guitar for 15.

The lesson was very interesting. Peter was really nice & informative. Looking forward to more lessons with him.

What I Learned From Peter.

- THE METRONOME IS SO IMPORTANT
- The voice guides the guitar if you’re more of a singer
- Repetition is key
- Practice songs that aren’t in your style to ease your way into guitar
- The power resides in strumming rhythmically
- Focus is more difficult that it seems when combining singing and guitar
- Guitar is an art in itself and itself you shouldn’t master guitar, you should be it’s friend.
- Open mics and video content are the key to more success as they expose you to criticism (good or bad)
Again, the guitar is your companion.

For any aspiring musician or any musician that needs guidance and improvement on the guitar, Peter is a great teacher.

Peter is very patient and great teaching my 9yr old son. We take father and son lessons together which has been amazing. Peter is naturally talented and plays many other instruments all in from his home studio. He is also extremely flexible and accommodating. Highly recommended!

Mark is a great instructor. Chill dude and lots of fun to work with. Loads of musical knowledge, and a ton on handy tips. If you ask nicely, he'll even teach you to play the uke behind your back or with your teeth.

Mark is an awesome instructor who makes learning the ukulele fun. I feel like I've already learned so much in the 7 classes I've taken. He is patient, creative, and easy to learn from.

Eric taught me alot today and this had by far been my favorite lesson I learned so much about how I should sing when trying to take it up as a profession I sincerely want to thank him for taking the time out of his day to teach me.

I have worked with students of all ages for nearly 20 years, but I especially love teaching kids who are excited to try a new instrument. I believe in teaching kids to not only earn high marks and excel in their work, but to truly love music. I have a bachelor’s degree in music, performed professionally in multiple styles and multiple music acts, and have developed musicians who have moved on to pursue music in professional venues. I take joy in playing music and I know you will too!

About Casey

Casey does a phenomenal job of teaching our 12 year-old daughter keys. He's very patient and is able to teach her at her pace, while still challenging her to improve. Since beginning lessons with Casey, we've seen a tremendous improvement in her ability and look forward to what she can do next!
Ireland
I grew up taking piano lessons, but it wasn't until I started taking lessons with Casey that I really gained confidence in my ability to play in front of an audience. I learned songs that I really enjoyed and that I still play six years later. I also took guitar lessons from him for a while, and I loved that he encourages you to know your instrument, to do your exercises, but also to just play what you like. His passion for music is evident in everything that he does, and he's a compassionate, knowledgeable instructor. I'd recommend him to anyone.
Seth
Casey is very encouraging knowledgeable! He made lessons fun and something to look forward to. I no longer take lessons with Casey, but now I’m pressuring a music career!

I have played guitar for 5 years and am currently studying at the Berklee College of Music as a guitar principal! I will take time to get to know where students are in their guitar playing, whether they have never touched the instrument before or are simply looking to learn more. This will help students learn guitar in an efficient and effective manner, and will get students to work on what they need to work on. Along with playing techniques, I am also well versed in music theory and can teach concepts of music theory during lessons. I am excited to teach the incredibly rewarding art of playing guitar!

About Andrew

"Recently, I joined an 18 piece jazz band as their guitarist before realizing I was in way over my head. The speed and complexity of the chord changes were bit too much for me even though I have been playing at home for some 40 years and now I'm in my 50s. Freaking out and not wanting to be a quitter, I decided to ask for the best jazz guitar instructor in Seattle so that I could learn whatever I could in two months (our first gig.) I was told that Ahmad would be a great match for me. I sent him an email and received a response the same evening with the days and times that he could fit me into his schedule. What a relief, I thought, and began to relax.

Sitting down with Ahmad, I realized how much I didn't know about music theory and the guitar fret board and decided to begin lessons twice per week. It's been just over a month now I cannot believe how much sense music theory and the guitar fret board makes to me right now. Ahmad has really laid it out a good foundation so that I can see how everything fits together like never before. Ahmad not only understands jazz guitar, but he also knows how to teach according to the way a person learns. Recently, the stress of playing with a big jazz band has gone away.

After talking with several other students of Ahmad who were waiting for their lessons to begin, I learned that he was a really great instructor for all sorts of guitar lessons. And everyone seemed very pleased. I've have been to other guitar instructors in the past and I will highly rate Ahmad for jazz guitar, a solid 5 stars."

"I am really enjoying my lessons with Joey with now. The greatest part about my experience is that I am actually practicing, and enjoying the rewards of practicing. He really knows how to inspire his students, so he is a great choice for guitarist's who have hit the "wall". I have improved greatly in my practice sessions because of his philosophies on practice he has shared with me. We work on mostly electric guitar, and since he is classical trained, his thoughts on left hand technique are extremely helpful!"
