Melissa is patient, explains the concepts very well, she is hands on and makes the lessons very entertaining and dynamic. The way she selects the material for her students she finds the right balance between effective learning, fun and interesting. We are very fortunate to have her as a piano teacher.
Sevval N.
She was so kind and helpful toward my kids for the fist day.
Youjia S.
My daughter struggled to stay focused for the whole one hour. It would be better to have video conference option so she can see the teacher.

Private Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching guitar for the past 15 years. I help students find their unique musical voice through the study of songs and techniques they are interested in. For younger students I also use the Hal Leonard guitar method books to learn music reading. As students advance we switch to William Levitt's Modern method for guitar for jazz students, or Christopher Parkening's classical guitar method for fingerstyle players. Students should be able to play chords to their favorite tunes within 6 weeks. I teach to inspire passion for music. If you love music it makes it fun to practice. When you practice it makes music fun!

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.

I have been a student with Ahmad for about 6 months doing beginning acoustic guitar. I decided to try Ahmad based on the reviews, and am glad I did. Of all the music teachers I have had (previously I took piano lessons), I enjoy Ahmad's teaching style the most. He has taught me a good blend of theory and practice. This has kept lessons and practice interesting, while still letting me feel like I am learning all of the important fundamentals.

Ahmad's flexibility with make up lessons is also appreciated. There have been times where my work schedule has been hectic, so I had to miss a lesson, and he was able to squeeze my lesson in later in the week. There have also been a few times where I have had follow up questions about a lesson, sent him an e-mail, and gotten a response within a few hours.

I recently wanted to get an electric guitar, but had no idea what to look for, so I asked Ahmad for some recommendations. Instead of just giving me recommendations, he offered to go to a guitar store with me to try some out. We went and he helped me pick out a great beginner electric guitar!

Ahmad is clearly passionate about music and willing to go above and beyond for his students. I highly recommend Ahmad to anyone who is thinking about taking guitar lessons.
John
I've been playing guitar for about 15 years and I've had a few guitar teachers. Ahmad is the best teacher I've had. He is always excited about guitar and music in general. Taking lessons from him has vastly improved my knowledge of music. He is a great teacher and musician!

Online Guitar Teacher

I have been teaching for the past 8 years, and have worked with any age or skill level you can imagine. This has allowed me to create a methodology that will make sure you obtain the foundation you need in order to thrive at playing an instrument, but never lose track of what kind of music you're looking towards learning, and where your interests lie. I also have extensive performing experience having played and learned styles such as Flamenco (my first introduction to music), Jazz (I have a Bachelors and a Masters degree in Jazz Performance), Rock, Blues, Classical music and many more.

About Julian

I have a Bachelors degree in Jazz Performance from Berklee College of Music, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude, and a Masters Degree from Queens College in Jazz performance, studying under musicians such as Mike Moreno, Antonio Hart, Alain Mallet, David Berkman, Michael Mossman, Tim Miller and many

Our lessons with Julian are eye opening. He showed me many great exercises to become a better guitarist. He has a great attitude and knows a lot about music! If you want to learn guitar, Julian is the perfect teacher. Always looking forward to my lessons.
Nick
If you're serious about learning Guitar, you should talk to Julian. Seriously, my playing has improved exponentially since studying with him, 100% recommended!
Mike
Julian is the man! I started learning guitar from him a while ago and I can't believe how far we've come. I can now play some songs by myself, even learn them without his assistance. I had this idea that I wasn't cut for music making (I used to play some violin when I was younger, never got any good at it) but I couldn't resist the idea of learning how to play some guitar. Thanks to Julian (and his patience!) I no longer feel like I'm unable to do this. Take a lesson with him, you wont regret it!

As my student, I work with you to develop goals based on your interests and teach you what you want to learn.

Joel is an excellent instructor. He is very knowledgeable, extremely patient, and gave thoughtful answers to even my dumbest questions.
Annie
I've really enjoyed working with Joel! He has a lot of in-depth knowledge of complex playing and writing techniques, but he's also been great at teaching me (a beginner) the basics. He always has great tips and exercises to work on in between lessons which motivates me to keep practicing. Really nice guy.
Annelisa
Really great guy to work with and learn from! He explains everything well and has come up with great exercises/lessons for us to do. I’m picking guitar up pretty well learning from him. I feel like he’s really helping to set me up to now learn more independently at home

"I can say without any reservation that Raymond is the complete package in a teacher! Raymond brings a sense of joy to learning guitar that makes me look forward to lessons, which I always leave in a better mood than when I started. He is probably the most insightful instructor that I have ever had the pleasure to work with--in music or any other field. He understands my strengths and weaknesses and tailors his teaching to my needs and my background. While I have a fair amount of musical experience, my struggles with stress and lack of confidence could have easily led me to quit taking lessons some time ago. But Raymond has a way of instilling confidence and making learning and practicing so fun that I just can't stop playing (and I started lessons in 2012)! Hearing him play with such grace and beauty, even the simple pieces that I am attempting, provides that much more motivation. And you'll never meet a warmer and more genuine person!"

"We are very much enjoying the guitar learning experience with Joel. I applaud the fact that he is not only teaching the mechanics of playing the guitar, but some theory to back up the practices being taught. Learning to read music is a nice benefit also. Joel is very patient with my 10-year old Allison and she is enjoying his teaching style. He's a very easy person to talk with and ask questions to."
