Private Guitar Teacher

Experienced guitar teacher of 25 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of fundamental guitar skills. I specialize in rock, blues, and country, typically use study books, and also have sheet music available to use during lessons. You will learn simple and complex chords, lead guitar scales and melodies, music sight reading and music theory.

I have been playing guitar (self taught) for about 25 years, just not very well. I was looking for a teacher that could help me fill in the music theory gaps. As well as help me formulate a meaningful practice plan that will get me over my hump. I gotta say Scott has hit the nail on the head every lesson. He first listened.. and as a result has delivered an eye opening and inspiring lesson every time. I highly recommend Scott for guitarists of all levels. He knows his STUFF!! Better yet, he knows how pull what YOU need from what he knows and deliver it effectively.

I was a brand new student, with very little experience, trying to teach myself online. When I realized that wasn't working I searched for an instructor and found Mike. He has a very patient demeanor, can play all styles, and most importantly is an easy going and fun instructor. He teaches what you want to play, and I have rather eclectic taste in music...... So if wasn't familiar with a band/song, he has the ability to listen to it and play it right on the spot. Mike has an exceptional ear! You can't go wrong with him, so give him a try! You'll be very happy you did

I signed up to play guitar for "The Sound of Music" with Burbank Community Theater, and after I got the music I realized I was way over my head. So, I went to Mike hoping to get a lot of help. He's amazing. First, he sight-read all of my music, which is crazy. Then he was able to simplify it for me so I could play it and still make it sound good. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't have been able to do the show. And now that I've done the show successfully I have a whole new range of skills on the guitar and playing the songs I love is way easier.

I'm so grateful for Mike and everything he's taught me!

Versatile, professional, fun guitar teacher

Mike is a fantastic teacher. He really listens to what the student wants to learn and tailors accordingly. Mike knows music theory and plays lots of different styles so is able to accommodate a wide range of skills and interests. He's direct but gentle with his suggestions. I highly recommend him!

Online Guitar Teacher

I am a skilled and compassionate teacher with decades of experience working with both children and adults, crafting lessons to fit your personal musical goals. My teaching focus for beginner guitar is to get chords into your hands so you can begin to play songs as quickly as possible. You will learn some music theory as we go, that will help make sense of what you are learning and why. Mostly the lessons are created to be fun, rewarding and to prepare you to play music quickly and well. For intermediate students, I offer 30-plus years of guitar playing experience and many years of recording, performing and teaching the guitar to a wide range of players with the intention to add interest and uniqueness to your sound as a guitarist. Right hand techniques, how to "change it up" so the songs you play don't all sound the same.

I also teach songwriting, voice and performance so we can create combo lessons that meet your specific musical goals.

About Sharon

I am a singer-songwriter, teacher, guitarist, seminar leader, writer and a mom of two amazing sons. I absolutely love children, teaching and music. I also love put

"Guitar lessons with Ahmad were my weekly retreat from a hectic workweek. Ahmad is super patient with you every step of the way. Somehow he manages to urge you to practice (something I have trouble with) without being naggy or making you feel guilty. He listens to your concerns and musical tastes and incorporates them into each lesson.

He lets you pick the genre and even songs that you'd like to play. His classical training means that you get experience in sight reading music and musical theory. I'm a bit of weird bird that I like blues and punk rock. He taught me the basics in both so I can have a great time just jamming out with him or with some of my talented friends.

Overall, if you're looking to invest some money in lessons, Ahmad is the place to go."
