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.

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.
Uma
Ahmad is an amazing teacher. My daughter took guitar from him for over a year and she progressed quickly both in skill level with guitar, but also in confidence and social skills. My daughter has some issues relating to other people, including some speech issues, and I was upfront with Ahmad about this before signing her up. He was amazing the whole way. Always positive and always a great communicator both in person and via email.

I love Guitar Lessons with Ahmad. Going on my second year of guitar lessons with Ahmad. Great atmosphere and great teacher.

She's a good teacher . She also put up with me not knowing anything well.

Started with some basics and built on that. Was very helpful in showing me tuning, proper hand positioning, and how to improve my fingering (those pesky notes). Got a lot for the first class and enough homework to keep me busy! Will be meeting again next week.

I really like to cater to what each individual student wants to learn. I prefer focusing on learning songs in addition to doing "bookwork", especially initially. I feel like its my job as a teacher to first make music fun first, and then introduce and refine concepts about technique, theory, etc. in a way that works for each unique student. I really try to encourage a student's curiosity about music. I like getting outside of the box; talking about for instance, the physics of sound, or the history of composition during a lesson. I am a huge theory nerd, and I really try to introduce those concepts in a way that is both easy to grasp and more practical than what you might take away from the typical 8am college course. I really try and go where the student wants to, whether that be guiding them thru some songwriting or learning a classic Richie Blackmore solo.

About Timothy

I have been teaching for over 15 years. I live for music, and love the opportunity to share that joy with others. I've toured all across the US and Europe, both as a guitarist and a sound engineer. I've also worked as a session guitarist since the age of 16. I'm fluid in a number of different genre

Tim’s doing a great job teaching our 9 yr old how to play guitar. He’s very patient!
Jessica
Our 9 year old son has been getting guitar lessons from Tim for the last 2 years and we couldn’t be happier. Tim was very patient with him as a beginner and kept it simple until he learned the basics. He does a great job of relating to the kids and making it fun for them while educating them on technique through their progression. Our son really looks forward to going to lessons and can’t thank Tim enough for his instruction and mentorship to our little Rockstar!
Aidyn
Love Tim. He teaches what the student is ready to learn which has kept me interested in guitar lessons for the past 2 years. No workbooks. He encourages me to try any new song I want. Sometime I ask for a lesson in music theory, song writing, or a little piano. He’s just a cool guy and very relatable.

My goal as a teacher is to give you the facility to express yourself through music. The key parts to developing this facility are:

1. theory -- if you know your theory, you know the best way to express your idea without having to think about it
2. technique -- the last thing you want is for your technique to hinder your ability to express your idea. Having good technique lets your ideas flow naturally

When you take lessons with me, you get out of it what you put in. Your job as student is to be honest with what you expect to achieve and my job as teacher is to give you the tools to achieve it

About David

I am a bass player first, not a guitarist who also teaches bass. Students will learn technique, theory and groove from a teacher who understands that as bass players, we are in a unique position. Since bass is both a harmony and rhythm instrument we have the opportunity to develop into leaders in

David was very patient and thorough with the introductory lesson. He corrected some basic habits my son had and had him sounding better in 10 minutes.

He also had practical recommendations for daily practice.

I highly recommend David.
Chris H.
David went over basic music theory and rhythm with me, and corrected some technique issues. He explained things clearly and when we put some of it into practice in the final minutes I saw instant results. Absolutely excited to do my homework and for my next lesson.
Robert F.
As a beginning, self-taught bass player of four months, I wanted to find a teacher who could analyze and critique my playing. I scheduled five lessons with David over a time period of three months. David was instrumental in analyzing and critiquing bad techniques and habits I acquired. He very thoroughly emphasized proper fretting technique and finger positioning; exercises were given that helped me obtain full tonal quality and efficient fretboard navigation skills. We also reviewed basic theory, scale modes, rhythmic weight, pentatonics and arpeggios; seminal knowledge for the beginner.

A technical type player, David has excellent playing skills as well as a comprehensive knowledge of theory and its practical application. He is a good listener and showed a genuine interest in helping me achieve my goals. I definitely can see an improvement in my playing skills....playing more confidently and efficiently.

Highly recommended.......

Berklee Graduate with more than 15 years on guitar. I can teach any range of experience levels, and I also specialize in taking people through the steps of being able to record their own songs and produce their own demos so they can show their work to people!

I've worked as a music teacher, professional session guitarist, as a lead singer of a pop band, as a producer, as a social media manager for a music festival, and more. I try to approach each student with the utmost patience and individualism, catering the curriculum to their music tastes and experience. Happy to teach reading tabs, and learning classic rock songs, but also equally happy to teach jazz standards and talk about more advanced techniques on guitar.

I look forward to meeting you!

"Headline: Jared is amazing teacher.
Jared has excellent knowledge of music foundations and music theory.
Knows styles and genres, knows not only how to play but create too... And how this style was born.
He helps to build habit to do things right - I'm talking about technique - or, in other words - how to use your hands!
Same time he's extremely patient.

I'd like to recommend Jared for everyone who want's to learn play guitar (don't look at your age), his teaching approach works great, because he is teaching you and adjust classes for you."

"My son was given a guitar by a family member and showed variable interest until Greg started to teach him - Greg has woven elements of what my son needs to learn to improve with how these elements are used by some of the biggest and best guitarists ever and really changed practice from being a chore to something that can be fun. This is the way Greg said he would teach and he’s sticking very much to it! A great instructor that my son really enjoys going to - thanks Greg!!"

I have always been a bit shy about playing guitar but I feel at ease with Ahmad. I was also impressed with how quickly and competently he was able to assess my current skill level and provided specific exercises and tips to help me progress from exactly where I'm at today. I left my first lesson feeling empowered and inspired.
