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.

Here's why I dig Ahmad. The atmosphere is casual, personable and relaxed, but he is a real professional who know what they're talking about and don't just give you Green Day tabs (unless you're into that, I'm sure). I've taken all kinds of music lessons with all kinds of folks in all kinds of places and settings and what I learn with Ahmad is comparable to what I could get at any serious school without the pretentiousness.

My lessons with Ahmad have been illuminating. I totally appreciate his willingness and ability to work through my various neuroses with patience, grace and clarity. Ahmad brings a refreshing combination of content knowledge, adaptability, professionalism and humanity to his instruction--the cherry atop my Tuesday evening parfait.

My kids had great lessons with Ahmad. A friendly instructor with a definite love for music and teaching evident. I think he is a very approachable person for anyone nervous about improving their musical skills.

Students can expect a relaxed atmosphere, but also making sure that there is a high level of professionalism and expectation of attentiveness from the student.

Of course, I also understand that this all depends on the age of the student, and as we meet and get to see what it is that you want to focus on and I will make sure to concentrate on that and help you reach your goals!

About Erasmo

Hello Parents and Students, I have been teaching and writing music professionally for sixteen years. My first introduction to music was just like some of you, starting in high school, where I had a great teacher that encouraged me to play. This helped me so much, and I wouldn't be where I am if

Erasmo is very patient with my 9 year old who had stopped his drums lessons for about a year and his technique of teaching is different from the previous teacher as in he's touching up on more basic techniques and working on fundamentals in addition to just practicing some songs every class. I think in the long run my son will benefit from that.

I encourage students to find the sounds they like and really connect with and work backwards from there to teach them the fundamentals they will need to fall more in love with the music they create. I'm a firm believer that the music you create is an extension of yourself, so learning the basics should be fun and encouraging for the student to want to dive deeper on their own. With my lessons we will discover what works for you and design a personalized lesson plan to get you on your way to flowing with music.

About Kevin

I grew up learning the piano, guitar, and other instruments throughout my childhood. Now I've taken my focus and put it into playing live electronic music in a band. After college, and working for a couple years, I bought an RV, remodeled it, and traveled around making music for 2 years. Now I

Kevin is a well-rounded artist. He helped me learn how to use Photoshop in order for me to come up with a logo for my business. He is very knowledgeable and tailors the lesson to your needs. 10/10 will be working with him again in the future.

I was a first time piano player with no music theory background when I started taking lessons with Stephanie. She is a great teacher, very patient, and constructed each lesson to match my skill level and musical interests. She was always very positive and encouraged me when I was frustrated with my playing. Wonderful teacher.

"Lorin helped me hone my songwriting skills immensely, by not only teaching but collaborating with me when necessary. It was refreshing to find someone who put his teachings into practical learning, where I could see the outcomes become apparent. He’s a nice dude, and is experienced equally across his fields. He guided me to making intelligent choices for equipment purchases, both instruments and pro audio gear. We first met while he was living in New York, and boy has he traveled since. I think living in so many different states, and being that well journeyed has given him good cultural depth to his work. Check out some of his own collabs with singers and musicians from all over the world...that really says it all."
