I've been taking lessons from Steven for I think two years now and he's helped me so much not only in reading music but also in ear training and in my song writing. He's incredibly patient and fun to work with. He also has a really nice cat.

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 have been playing guitar for many years. And before I met Ahmad, I worked with many teachers. However none of them had much of a systematic approach. Ahmad does! And I have come to realize how important it is to study this instrument in the right sequence or something pretty close. The thing I appreciate the most is that Ahmad has taught me musicality. He has taught me how to follow the chords when soloing. Prior to our lessons it was a daunting task for me. Now landing on the "pretty" notes has become very easy. It makes me so happy. I believe such experience is very precious. To me it's the charm of music!
He has solid, professional theoretical and practical skills. He is super organized. His explanations are very clear. In addition, he is funny so the process is very pleasant. Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate guitar player, I can guarantee that you can learn a lifetime of knowledge from him.
Kris
After having been a student of Ahmad's for over a year now, I can earnestly say he is a quality instructor unlike any I've had before. He shapes each individual class specifically to what your guitar goals are, creating incredibly detailed and thorough handouts and exercises to help you get there. I am the type of student who learns best with a well-defined regime laid out clearly in front of me. His handouts are a perfect match for my learning style and you can tell the years of experience and knowledge that has gone into creating each one. He is also a very adaptive teacher helping me surpass some rhythm barriers in unique and creative ways. He had helped me gain a new appreciation and understanding for music theory and most importantly he helps keep it fun.
Tammy
When my son moved to the area, he began playing guitar for the first time. His job kept him very busy, so he wanted to find a guitar instructor where his time would be well spent. Below is his review of Ahmad.

You would be hard-pressed to find an instructor as excellent as Ahmad. With his help, I made an incredible amount of progress on guitar in a matter of months. His lessons are precise and organized, and I always left the lesson feeling like I learned a ton of new stuff. He strikes a great balance between requiring excellence as well as giving encouragement and making sure it's always fun. In a few months, I went from knowing close to nothing about music to being able to play my favorite songs from start to finish. As I have left the area, I will miss Ahmad's lessons, but I'm thankful for getting him to start my journey into the world of music!

Private Blues Guitar Teacher

Hi! I love teaching music because I believe music is an essential part of us that should be available for everyone. I base my curriculum heavily on what the student is interested in learning. Of course we will go over the fundamentals, we will practice ear training, and learn basic music theory, but the music we learn will be totally up to you and what makes you tick.

About Marwan

As a guitar teacher I hope to simplify the learning experience as much as possible. I hope to provide a sound foundation of musical knowledge to my students so that they can develop as players and become free to create their own music. I enjoy teaching the art of improvisation, and am knowledgeable in both reading and theory. I hope to always make the learning process enjoyable and rewarding.

"Leaving a second review for William to tell players out there how awesome he is. Having worked with William for over a year, I can tell you his teaching style and ability to communicate are superior to that of other teachers. Moreover, William helped me develop a strong technical foundation for playing—and after 16 years of guitar playing with other teachers, I was surprised how far those little changes can go (i.e., how you hold the pick, where to put your thumb on the neck, the sequential order to playing notes on a chord, etc.) While that may sound basic, believe me, it's not. I almost had to relearn how to play. Overall, I highly recommend William if you're looking to crush your guitar playing goals."
