I ranked #1 in the Slash Guitar Center competition.

I fell into the pattern of doing the same thing over and over on guitar and needed help getting a fresh perspective. Ahmad is an excellent teacher. He taught me a lot of new theory to make my playing more interesting, as well as different techniques to change up my sound.

Highly Recommended!

Wow ! So excited I started taking guitar lessons with Ahmad,and he has been so easy to work with ! Ahmad has been able to teach me and my son acoustic guitar - so much progress in just a short period of time ! Beyond professional and highly trained Ahmad is able individualize the lesson to your learning style and music preferences! Highly recommend !
Mike
I just started talking lessons with Ahmad and already I've learned SO much. As others have mentioned, he tries to get a sense of your musical interests and playing style in order to know you better and how you want to grow as a player.

He knows his music theory and has a great ear, which helps as he explains not only how a song goes, but the fundamental behind it. He also is very prepared with plans and practice sheets and tries to make lessons laid back and enjoyable.

Highly recommend taking lessons from this guy.

I totally enjoyed my class with Geoff. We immediately started my lesson with tuning the ukulele. Then we went over the cords and strumming. I have been researching on playing the ukulele and his explanation on the strumming was a lot better than the book. He is teaching me how to play by listening to the notes which is great because I would be able to play the Hawaiian music for my hula classes. In addition, his studio is only a 5 minute drive from my house, which means I don’t have to deal with traffic.

"Greg knows his instruments inside out. He has explored every genre from countless musical perspectives and brings this to his teaching.

He is patient and encouraging. He affords his students more than just how-to's - he asks of them to truly connect with the instrument they want to learn. He is well-worth your investment as he will truly invest in you."

If you're a beginner (like me), he makes sure you completely nail down the fundamentals to prevent any later confusion. It's also very helpful that he provides lesson recordings and short lists, summarizing what you should be practicing each week."

"Very Good Teacher

I took bass lessons with Jon last year, and it was truly a phenomenal experience! Jon worked with me on my level and really broke down music theory in a clear manner. He also was able to pinpoint the areas I needed the most work in, and then developed drills for me to use at home between lessons. His teaching style helped me develop from a below average bass player to a proficient level…in less than 6 months! I highly recommend Jon no matter your experience level."

Looking for a way to make your bass lines move? Bass guitar teacher Miller W. shares his three step plan to creating walking bass lines...
