I've had the pleasure of taking lessons from Ahmad for a couple of years. He is a very knowledgeable and patient instructor with the ability to find minor technical flaws in my playing and easily correct them. I really enjoy his philosophy and musical understanding with a really high ability to dissect and explain elements of a song and relate it to music theory that's easily understandable. On top of that he is a super nice guy that exudes nothing but a positive attitude and gives one the impression that anything is possible in one's musical effort that is really infectious. Don't hesitate to give Ahmad a try.
Dan
Ahmad is no doubt one of the most humble, approachable, and skillful guitar teacher you can find around Seattle. I have been studying with Ahmad for the past 3 and a half months. Ahmad was not the first music instructor I had. He is however, the best one so far by a large margin. Since the first lesson Ahmad has been extremely professional and organized in his teaching methods. He is able to quickly identify my strengths and weaknesses as a player, tailor his lessons to fit my capabilities, and help me improve in great effectiveness.

I took lessons once a week with Ahmad, and every week I could see noticeable improvements because Ahmad assigned me homework that was fun and challenging but never frustrating. But beyond this, not only have I become a more skilled guitar player, through Ahmad's help I was also able to apply a lot of the theoretical music knowledge in other aspects. When I hear a piece of music, I find that I am slowly able to identify parts of the music, break it down into logical steps, and connect the music to the fretboard of the guitar.

I am a college student with a busy schedule both on and off work, but with Ahmad I was able to greatly improve nonetheless. Thank you Ahmad, I really look forward to coming back and be your student again.
Benjamin
I have been playing guitar for many years. And before I met Ahmad, I worked with many teachers. However none of them had much of a systematic approach. Ahmad does! And I have come to realize how important it is to study this instrument in the right sequence or something pretty close. The thing I appreciate the most is that Ahmad has taught me musicality. He has taught me how to follow the chords when soloing. Prior to our lessons it was a daunting task for me. Now landing on the "pretty" notes has become very easy. It makes me so happy. I believe such experience is very precious. To me it's the charm of music!
He has solid, professional theoretical and practical skills. He is super organized. His explanations are very clear. In addition, he is funny so the process is very pleasant. Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate guitar player, I can guarantee that you can learn a lifetime of knowledge from him.

Blues is right at the heart of America's music traditions, and it is an essential part of the vocabulary or electric lead guitar. I love the blues and am a lifelong student, having delved into style from the Piedmont blues masters through the the great electric masters like B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Josh Smith. I would love to share my knowledge of this deep and beautiful artform with you, covering its essential elements from rhythms, to licks to progression.

"Adam’s got some cool blues pockets. I’d never really thought about lead as pockets - kind of like a drummer would think about a fill. So I guess if you think about lead as discrete pockets it should be “easier “ to break down the lead guitar."

"Leaving a second review for William to tell players out there how awesome he is. Having worked with William for over a year, I can tell you his teaching style and ability to communicate are superior to that of other teachers. Moreover, William helped me develop a strong technical foundation for playing—and after 16 years of guitar playing with other teachers, I was surprised how far those little changes can go (i.e., how you hold the pick, where to put your thumb on the neck, the sequential order to playing notes on a chord, etc.) While that may sound basic, believe me, it's not. I almost had to relearn how to play. Overall, I highly recommend William if you're looking to crush your guitar playing goals."

5 Blues Guitar Secrets That Will Make You a Better Player

Learning how to play blues guitar? Pay extra attention to these five things from guitar teacher Mike B.... 1. In Tune Bends The blues guitar style is full of bending strings. Bends, as well as hammer-ons, pull-offs and slides, give guitarists the ability to imitate the way singers use various inflections while singing melodies. However, unlike hammers-ons and slides, bends are not guaranteed to be in tune. Since there is nothing worse than an out-of-tune bend in the climax of a great solo …
