Private Guitar Teacher

I have been teaching guitar for the past 10 years. I really enjoy teaching guitar and seeing my students learning and enjoying it too! I use a book that I really like but of course I add other materials when I think it is suitable for my student. Each student learns differently so I adapt to his learning style and to his needs.

About Soraya

About me, I have been playing the guitar for more than 20 years. I studied at the Conservatory of Music in France. In San Francisco, I studied and played with many great jazz musicians and teachers. I have also studied theory/ composition, electronic music, and voice. I hold an MA in Education.

I've been working with Soraya for over two years. My experience with taking lessons from Soraya has been a wonderful journey of self discovery as well as learning an amazing instrument. My schedule is quite busy and I also have a 10mo old so I don't have a lot of time to practice. However somehow Soraya's teaching technique keeps me moving forward during every class. We meet once a week and I am always excited for my lesson. Sometimes it has been really challenging to learn new chords and yet she is always patient with me and curates the lessons if she sees I need more time on something. Now I am learning a new song that I picked out and it's been so much fun. I highly recommend Soraya and her knowledge about music theory is an added bonus.

This teacher never showed up to my appointment. Her phone number was disconnected.. so much for buying 10 lessons in advance.

About Jeremy

I began playing guitar by ear around age ten. I learned rock songs from records for a few years, and then I began a more serious study of theory in high school. Over the next several years I alternated between pursuing my music degree and playing in bands all over the midwest. In 2004, I transferre

My son has been getting guitar lessons from Jeremy for about six months. My son is really enjoying learning to play and he looks forward to his lessons with Jeremy! Jeremy is a wonderful teacher. He's knowledgeable, intelligent, professional and easy going. Jeremy is not the first teacher that my son has had but he's by far the best. I feel very fortunate to have found him!
Brad
I learned so much from Jeremy over about 4 years of lessons. He listened to my goals, and tailored his lessons to help me achieve them. From the fundamentals to more advanced skills, such as improvisation, he stuck with me and allowed me to develop my own voice on the guitar.
Chris
I'm a total beginner on the guitar. Watched a few youtube vids, learned some basics, but working in-person with Jeremy I've progressed a LOT faster. Worth the investment!

I'm Ahmad a very enthusiastic musician. I started out teaching myself guitar at the age of 12. I moved to the U.S. in 2001 and studied music for 15 years receiving my B.M. and M.M in music and audio production at San Francisco State University. I then moved to Los Angeles then studied and trained with John Mayer, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, George Lynch and many others. I have performed hundreds of concerts in the U.S. as well in Europe and the Middle East with Artists such as Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Guns N Roses, Michael Angelo Batio, Ratt, Sammy Hagar, Dokken and many others. I ranked #1 in the Slash Guitar Center competition. I was in the "list of top 5 guitar players ever" according to The Examiner, also picked as one of the best guitarists of 2013 and 2014 consecutively in the Rockwell UnScene magazine, and ranked 3rd in the Steve Vai Sam Ash Best in Shred competition.

Ahmad is so amazing and great!. He is very flexible, can schedule classes via email and is totally approachable. I am learning a ton already.
Marc
Recently, I joined an 18 piece jazz band as their guitarist before realizing I was in way over my head. The speed and complexity of the chord changes were bit too much for me even though I have been playing at home for some 40 years and now I'm in my 50s. Freaking out and not wanting to be a quitter, I decided to ask for the best jazz guitar instructor in Seattle so that I could learn whatever I could in two months (our first gig.) I was told that Ahmad would be a great match for me. I sent him an email and received a response the same evening with the days and times that he could fit me into his schedule. What a relief, I thought, and began to relax.

Sitting down with Ahmad, I realized how much I didn't know about music theory and the guitar fret board and decided to begin lessons twice per week. It's been just over a month now I cannot believe how much sense music theory and the guitar fret board makes to me right now. Ahmad has really laid it out a good foundation so that I can see how everything fits together like never before. Ahmad not only understands jazz guitar, but he also knows how to teach according to the way a person learns. Recently, the stress of playing with a big jazz band has gone away.

After talking with several other students of Ahmad who were waiting for their lessons to begin, I learned that he was a really great instructor for all sorts of guitar lessons. And everyone seemed very pleased. I've have been to other guitar instructors in the past and I will highly rate Ahmad for jazz guitar, a solid 5 stars.
Jimmy L
I took several guitar classes with Ahmad a while back - he is an excellent instructor and very personable. He was more concerned with teaching me how to play the guitar rather than trying to get me to pay for more sessions. I still have his very helpful teaching notes!

In addition to the actual instruction, he also had great advice on what to or not to buy - I am an expert at the violin (this is not like an Asian thing but I had insisted to learn it) but was a complete novice with the guitar. It also helps that he is a bonafide musician in an actual band - I attended one of his concerts, which was very enjoyable, but had to leave before I could talk to him.

My first lesson with Zach was great! 5 stars. He asked the right questions as to what aI am looking to do. And we quickly came up with a lesson plan that with the right amount of work in my part will get me headed in the right direction. Zach does a great job of making his students feel comfortable and good about their abilities.
