Private Guitar Teacher

I”m patient, engaging, and have a deep love of learning and communicating my passion for music. Even though I’ve performed professionally as a soloist with orchestras, I know what it’s like to be a beginner- I was there just ten years ago!

If you take lessons with me, prepare to see your progress skyrocket. I work together with my students to create objectives that will enthuse them and make them want to practice, and then break those down into micro-goals, so that they are going to see tangible progress every day that they pick up the guitar.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Private Guitar Teacher

I've been playing and performing on Guitar for about ten years. I play a multitude of different styles and genres, including rock, country, r&b, jazz, blues, metal, funk, motown, along with many others.

My teaching approach is relatively simple; I work to empower you to approach and play your own instrument through rhythm, moderate music theory, as well as fretboard theory and picking/plucking styles. I also like to do practical application studies, i.e., using songs you're interested in learning to apply new techniques.

Most importantly, we progress at your pace and yours alone. If there's something very specific you'd like to accomplish, we can most certainly do that, or if you want to improve upon your general approach and method, that is also something I am available for.

Tyler arrived early, spent lots of time with my unruly daughter, and kept her on track! He's a good combination of fun/playful but also has a natural authority so that my daughter actually listens to his instruction. Well done and thank you Tyler!
Kerry
Great first lesson - looking forward to the next one.
Nicolas O.
I feel like I learned a lot in an hour and he really helped me find an anchor point that I can go back to if I am stuck on a note. I realized that he went over every proven method that I learned throughout my experiences from elementary school to highschool and then added on to them by explaining how these methods help. He even showed me methods usually taught to college musicians.

The reason I always believed in private lessons is because no matter how few or how many you take, the learning process gets expedited immensely.

I definitely would recommend this teacher for learning a brass instrument.

I've been teaching guitar for 30 years. My students have gone on to play professionally, have their songs on iTunes and teach at the college level. Once I get an idea of what type of guitar you are interested in, and what style, I can develop a plan for you. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Michael is a knowledgeable and patient teacher who is capable of adjusting on the fly to the student and their ability to learn. During lessons he has been able to draw out what I have learned in the distant past and expand upon it in a way that has begun to build a good foundation for me to practice with. I highly recommend him as an instructor.

"I was fortunate enough to take lessons with Ahmad years ago and I can say he is the most committed and focused guitar teacher I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I've sorted through more than a few. When I returned to the area after a few years in a job out of state I very quickly looked Ahmad up and began working with him again. I believe he has a real skill at determining what his students need to focus on to arrive at their goals and he is equally adept at presenting the material in the right amount at the most beneficial time. His instruction bolstered my confidence as a musician and enabled me to achieve longstanding goals of playing with other musicians, in key and on time;) it is also very clear that teaching guitar is Ahmad's passion and I found that very important, it's what he does for a living sure, but his dedication is rooted in something deeper and it shows. There are many tips, licks, and tricks instructors out there and that can be fine, but a true teacher is rare indeed. If you follow his lead he'll make you better."

"I've been with Paul for about 3-4 months. I came to him having a minor in music and a lot of guitar under my belt, but frustrated with my consistency. I did a check in on my abilities recently and I'm able to play pretty much any song in the real book now after 1 or 2 tries. This is great, especially because I don't feel like I'm working that hard. So yeah he's great. I recommend him."
