Private Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching guitar for the past 15 years. I help students find their unique musical voice through the study of songs and techniques they are interested in. For younger students I also use the Hal Leonard guitar method books to learn music reading. As students advance we switch to William Levitt's Modern method for guitar for jazz students, or Christopher Parkening's classical guitar method for fingerstyle players. Students should be able to play chords to their favorite tunes within 6 weeks. I teach to inspire passion for music. If you love music it makes it fun to practice. When you practice it makes music fun!

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 began taking singing lessons with Ahmad from an online coupon and had a great time. My guitar playing got consistently and measurably better and I felt like I was given quality instruction at the lesson as well as good ideas for practicing at home.

Ahmad is laid back and friendly and a great instructor. Thank you!

If you are brand-new to the guitar, I'd love to jump right in and teach you a fun song right away during your first lesson. I like making this as fun as possible while you're learning a lot about the guitar. If you already know how to play, I'd like to help you gain a better understanding of how the guitar applies to basic music theory. I want to help you truly gain your independence as a guitar player. In my opinion, there are only two things that really matter when learning how to play the guitar: 1) Having fun and 2) Learning a lot. That's what I hope that you can attain by learning from me.

About Kevin

I would like to start out saying I’m a 66 year old beginner acoustic guitar player. Kevin was very good in assuring me that the guitar isn’t that difficult to learn and proved it in my first lesson. He makes you feel at ease and throughly explains the lesson.

I believe that playing music is possibly the most fun activity a person can engage in, and learning how to improve at an instrument is a valuable experience that crosses over to many aspects of one’s life, as well as being really exciting and rewarding.

I have been playing guitar for over 10 years, and teaching almost as long. In California, I taught at the Santa Barbara Academy of Rock, Jensen’s Mainstage Summer Camp, The LOUD Program, Goleta Valley Jr. High, as well as many private lessons. Since moving to Portland in 2014, I have had many private students.

I enjoy playing guitar in a wide variety of scenarios, from rock, funk and soul bands, to accompanying singer songwriters, to playing in a variety of jazz small groups, as well as writing and arranging music.

I have a Bachelors in Arts & Letters with an emphasis in music from Portland State University, as well as an Associates Degree in Music from Santa Barbara City College . I have studied with Chris Judge, Darrell Grant, ...

About Dillon

I’ve been playing guitar for over 15 years, and teaching for most of that time! I love helping people get closer to reaching their musical goals, and showing them how inspiring playing music can be.

I’ve been taking lessons with Alan for a while now. He is very knowledgeable about music and ties in playing music to the theory behind it to make it easier to understand. He is very patient and caters it to your level and skill. Alan has also been extremely accommodating with my crazy, ever changing schedule. Great teacher!
