Mr. G goes over and above to help me pursue my interests. He helped me sing through a difficult time while my voice was changing. He supports me at performances and never fails to make me laugh. Working with him has been a fantastic experience and I feel that I have grown so much.

About Scott

Learn to play by ONLY playing songs you love! I started playing classical piano at age 6. Piano lessons were a bit dry so, once I could, I started playing my favorite songs on my own, out of songbooks and by ear. 45 years later, piano has probably saved me a ton on therapy :) And, it's helped me m

Great first lesson with Adam!
Jerry
excellent teacher/mentor.. My Son, has enjoyed his lessons.
Jo
Adam is helping me get back to playing guitar after some 40 years in which I did not play at all. With his help, I’m refreshing what I used to know (basic chords and notes on the staff), and extending my skills into new areas, like finger-picking, barre chords, and tablature-reading--plus learning a lot of new songs. He’s an excellent teacher.

I had my first lesson today. Cris is the real deal. He is an excellent guitar player and was able to coax what little skill and talent I possess into a formidable lesson early on. I'll be booking my Son along with myself and returning. We are blessed to have someone in the Rancho Bernardo/Rancho Penaquitos area like Cris!

"I started taking lessons with Ahmad over 5 years ago as a wee beginner. Looking back at where I started, I'm surprised at how much progress I have made and have learned more than I ever expected to.

You're probably reading this review because you're looking for a guitar teacher. At the time I was looking for a teacher, I was most impressed with Ahmad's website, the content of which demonstrated a care and attention to detail that gave me the feeling that the person behind it would have a similar attitude towards teaching. If you don't have an instrument yet, don't worry, Ahmad will give you all the advice you need on choosing the right one.

It is obvious from the start that Ahmad is not only an phenomenal guitar player, but also, and more importantly, displays a strong passion and dedication for teaching. Each lesson is carefully designed and structured to build off of techniques previously learned and Ahmad has a knack for making even difficult concepts easy to digest. He imparts simple tips and tricks, mined from years of experience, that have helped me master techniques and avoid tedious memorization exercises which would have made the learning process agonizingly painful. Having one-on-one lessons also allows Ahmad to give me the personal attention needed to provide feedback, positive and negative, and nip bad habits in the bud before they become ingrained. Additionally, each lesson comes with handouts which are handy to practice with and use as a reference.

Ahmad has a diverse set of musical tastes and a secondary benefit of taking lessons with him is that he's exposed me to a plethora of great music that I would not otherwise have discovered on my own. Whether you're a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or think you can rival Joe Satriani, there's something for you to learn from Ahmad. Also, I've found that lessons are very motivating in terms of encouraging me to keep practice because, yes, I do get lazy sometimes. With Ahmad, if you put in the time and effort, you will be rewarded greatly with the freedom to be as creative as your heart desires and you will have more fun playing the guitar than a mouse running loose in a cheese factory.

Oh, and Ahmad is a super cool guy too."

"Abraham is one of the best instructors I've ever had. Abraham is patient, willing to listen, and able to breakdown complex concepts into simpler ones to make it easier to understand. Having a good guitar teacher is more than just knowing how to play the guitar well - it's more about being able to understand the students needs and tailoring the lesson in the most efficient way for them - and Abraham does just that. We make the most out of the 45 minutes we have and I always walk away learning a lot each and every lesson. At this rate I am going to learn a lot quicker than I thought and it's all thanks to Abraham! I highly recommend him."
