Music has been my passion since I was 10 years old. I didn't have any real instruments at first, so, I built my own out of coffee cans, ice cream containers and of course: a rubber band shoebox guitar! It might sound funny, but, I believe these early days of trying to create music using my "homemade symphony," forced me to really get to the core of sound and expression without the pre-set curriculum of traditional music study. Early on, I learned a few fundamental concepts of music theory that would forever change how I learned, as well as how I taught music to others. I believe these concepts set a foundation that allowed me to understand music and grow much faster - including learning multiple instruments.

And yes, I eventually acquired a real guitar and went on to study music and computers at the University of California and I currently compose music for TV and film in my own studio. I have taught guitar, bass, piano, drums, theory, composition and recording production to ...

About Peter

I currently compose music for TV, film and other digital media in my own recording studio.

At school I studied classical music (theory and composition) as well as orchestration and compute

I just started my second year of guitar lessons with Peter and I’m learning so much! Peter is a great teacher who is patient, encouraging and a great listener. He can “hear” the areas that I need to work on, and is able to clearly communicate ways for me to improve . He has helped me get better at my rhythm, my strumming, tempo and even an introduction to music theory. I’m now playing (and singing) some of my favorite songs! Highly recommend!

I've been taking lessons with Ahmad for a year now. When I started, I was an absolute beginner having just taken a few guitar classes in high school. Now getting my Master's, I've been around A LOT of teachers and it's always clear early on whether you are lucky enough to have a great teacher. Some teachers, although they have excellent credentials, don't have the ability to convey their knowledge to their students in positive and effective ways.

In 6 months I've learned over two dozen chords, chord progression, strumming and playing in rhythm. I've learned my favorite songs from the Foo Fighters to Jenny Lewis. I definitely wouldn't be at this performance level without him. I've gone weeks without practicing and he would still be encouraging, adjusting his pedagogical approach so I can learn better or he would have suggestions for making my practice time more productive.

Ahmad has such enthusiasm for music and teaching and it shows in his playing (iTunes) and instruction. It's really inspiring as it's been a huge motivation for me to keep practicing to become confident enough to create my own music one day I think whether you are a beginner or more experienced, Ahmad has a good intuition of what a student needs to help them progress. The pacing for me is perfect, as I never feel like I have too little or too much to practice each week. Lessons are always light hearted but focused and educational. I'm always looking forward to the next one.
Pat
I fell into the pattern of doing the same thing over and over on guitar and needed help getting a fresh perspective. Ahmad is an excellent teacher. He taught me a lot of new theory to make my playing more interesting, as well as different techniques to change up my sound.

Highly Recommended!
Lauren B.
Wow ! So excited I started taking guitar lessons with Ahmad,and he has been so easy to work with ! Ahmad has been able to teach me and my son acoustic guitar - so much progress in just a short period of time ! Beyond professional and highly trained Ahmad is able individualize the lesson to your learning style and music preferences! Highly recommend !

Obviously also depending on your specific goals and experience, besides learning your favorite songs, we'll discuss techniques, music theory and creating music yourself (improvisation and songwriting).

I can also provide helpful advice on guitar related aspects like sound/equipment, instrument setup /maintenance and recording.

Nils is extremely knowledgeable and explains concepts thoroughly and patiently. He’s very much mastered both teaching and performing his craft and is equal parts artistic and technicality minded, a balance most of my previous creative instructors lacked, and one I believe plays an integral part in teaching a craft well.

Nils is fantastic! He provides very clear direction, is incredibly observant, is great at providing detailed assistance virtually, and our lessons are super fun!

After years of working on my scales and feeling like I still didn't know my way around the guitar, Tom was able to explain how to play scales vertically in both major and minor keys in just one lesson. No one before him had been able to explain it in such a way for it to finally click for me. Since then, I feel like my shredding skills have improved 10 fold and I have fallen even more in love with playing and jamming along to my favorite songs. Tom is patient, kind, calm, and an incredibly skilled guitarist that anyone would be lucky to learn from!

Thomas Dawson is a very informative, positive, and educational guitar teacher. He’s degree in music from University of Oregon is proof of his vast musical knowledge. His focus on rhyme will be sure to help you become a great guitar player. Above all he is a great person and fun to be around. After taking lessons with Tom my guitar skills and musicality vastly improved. I highly recommend him has a teacher.

"As someone who has played guitar for over ten years and taken lessons from several other accomplished guitar teachers, I can safely say that Ahmad is the best guitar teacher I've taken lessons from.

He determines what you hope to take away from the lessons and what your goals are as a player and is very dedicated to finding a way to get you there that is both educational and enjoyable. His instruction is very flexible and has no hesitation dropping one exercise and focusing more on styles of learning that are suitable for you as a student.

For someone who has been playing for a long time he was quickly able to open up a whole new set of possibilities and refresh the instrument for me as well as better my understanding of music harmony and melody in general."

I started taking lessons from Michael about a year and a half ago. I was in a rut and really wanted to pursue a deeper understanding of blues. The lessons we have embarked on have led me to a much deeper understanding of the theory behind what I'm doing. I think one of the biggest things that Michael has helped with is my personal confidence, especially in the arena of improvisation. I would highly recommend Michael for anyone wanting learn guitar, beginner or advanced, in a comprehensive way."
