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.

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.

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.

Private Classical Piano Teacher

I taught music lessons in a private school in Nova Scotia, Canada, for 10 years before moving to the United States in 2015. At this private school setting, I taught piano, voice, percussion, and drama. I worked with all ages from preschool to grade 12. I love working with children and thinking up new and exciting ways to learn and grow. I have a passion for bonding with teenagers and giving them hope for the future and cultivating pathways of success. I have a special spot in my heart for working with adults because I still love to study and know the thrill of new learning as an adult. As an added bonus, I am studied in the holistic approach of the Russian school of music and can make music come alive in the mind as well as the fingers. I teach each student as an individual finding his or her strengths and taking him or her to the highest level. I graduated this past May of 2021 from Eastern Connecticut State University with a Bachelor of Arts in piano performance. Playing the piano ...

I place high emphasis on music literacy and take time to help my students reach fluency when it comes to both reading and writing music. Every lesson, part of the time is spent focused on music theory to build understanding of not just piano but music itself.

Private Classical Piano Teacher

I have been teaching piano for about 20 years. My specialization is classical music, both European and Russian. Usually I pay a lot of attention to the correct positioning of hands, piano technique, theory and development of the student's musical ear. I work with students from beginner to high intermediate level, starting around age 8. I would be glad to convey to you my love for great ageless music and accompany it with hard workouts to develop finger dexterity. Perhaps your hands will sometimes hurt, but I promise you that you will have fun and be proud of yourself playing Mozart, Tchaikovsky or Chopin. My native language is Russian; I teach in Russian and English.

Natasha is a truly outstanding piano teacher. As a child I took piano several times from various teachers and it was always difficult and boring and I never got anywhere with it. I think this is the experience that many of us have had in trying to learn an instrument. But with Natasha it was completely different. She has been my children’s teacher for about 4 months. They are 6 and 8 years old. Let me tell you, she is magic! Both my kids LOVE playing the piano now. They look forward to their lessons, they are learning to read and write music and my oldest even wrote a simple song without any prompting! She teaches in a way which breaks all the parts of playing the piano very easily and really engages the students. I would say she is the perfect combination of disciplined and caring. She has given my boys a love for music and a genuine interest in playing the piano. This is one of the best gifts I can think anyone could give a child. Our whole family loves Natasha and we are very thankful to have found her. Now I also want to take lessons with her!

Not only did he teach me the basics of each instrument, I also learned about music theory and composition all at my own pace and in a relaxed environment. He does a fantastic job making sure everything he teaches is actually something you want to learn, not just mundane drills. Every lesson felt worthwhile."

"I am a fellow musician and piano teacher. I've known Tamari for well over a decade, and know her to be a dedicated teacher of piano. I've heard her sing at performances hosted by The Schubert Club of Fairfield County here in Connecticut, and she is quite skilled. I haven't seen Tamari in a formal piano performance, but we've sight-read piano music together at home, and she is very capable. Tamari's greatest strength is her warm and caring personality, which is essential for relating to students. Put that together with her excellent musical training, and you have a dynamite teacher."
