Private Guitar Teacher

I am a recent Berklee College of Music graduate living in Chicago. At Berklee, I was the first rock/metal guitarist to receive the "Jimi Hendrix Award." This award is given to the best guitarist at the school. I've played and studied many styles of music ranging from classical, traditional, blues, country, rock, and metal.
Besides teaching, I have a passion for songwriting and performance. Here in Chicago, I am currently playing with various bands and writing my own music. My teaching style is very "goal-oriented," and I will teach students to set short-term goals, medium goals, and then demonstrate to them how reaching the short and medium-term goals leads to accomplishing long-term goals. I envision teaching much like my teachings at Berklee where once my lesson was finished, I only wanted to go home and learn more. If you want to learn multiple styles from someone who is truly passionate about the instrument, I'm your guy!

"So it's been a month since I began lessons. I never took a guitar lesson in my life before I began studying under Greg and while there are subtle things you will learn from teachers just from watching them, Greg will teach you them through action to the point where you seemingly discover it on your own and then he gives you a look and you articulate this revelation and he explains how you came to that conclusion in a way that you can relate to. That is the highest level of teaching. He motivates you to do you best and puts the appropriate level of pressure for you to complete your goals. These goals are attainable, manageable and he's able to disseminate them in half hour sessions. I am 1000x the player I was from years of trying to figure out guitar on my own in 1 month and I can't wait to learn more from him. Greg is the real deal."

"Ahmad is incredible!! I could tell from day one he was going to make a huge difference in my guitar playing. His lessons are prepared in advance so very little time is spent penciling out lesson material. His recording/teaching studio is a very clean and professional, and his super well organized library of teaching materials allows us to maximize our learning time. I love playing his teaching material! None of the guys I took lessons from before had such an effective approach. I have so much fun with it! His lessons have introduced me to various pop, rock, country, metal, and jazz concepts from very popular musicians. He has a unique way of teaching rhythm that has helped me capture phrasing and keep songs in time. Recently I've started taking his harmony classes. These classes have given me the knowledge to confidently play with other musicians and create great music. I would highly recommend Ahmad for anyone that desires to learn more about the guitar. I am moving back to Arizona for work (and sun!). I wish I could take him with me!!"

The Benefits of Taking Guitar Lessons in Santa Clarita

By Chris S. - Santa Clarita Guitar Teacher

Many people don’t realize the numerous benefits that guitar lessons in Santa Clarita can provide for children. Oftentimes, guitar lessons will supply an abundant amount of knowledge beyond just learning to play music. If you have the resources and ability to enroll your child in lessons at a young age, these skills can be expanded and improved upon for years to come. For many parents it’s surprising to learn all of the diverse advantages that guitar classes can offer. Here are just a few:

  1. Learn and Develop Fundamental Musical Skills and Theory This is, of course, one of the most obvious benefits. Guitar lessons for kids will lay the foundation of basic musical skills and theory not only for the guitar, but for many other instruments. Once your child masters the fundamentals of sheet music, he or she will be able to read and write music on their own. These lessons will also ensure that your child knows the correct way to hold and strum a guitar, as well as how to transition between chords. As the classes progress to higher levels, your child will be able to build on these skills and play full songs.

  2. Build Confidence One of the most rewarding results of guitar lessons for kids is the feeling of confidence that comes with learning something new or mastering a technique. When your child goes to class and learns a new chord or how to read a line of music, he or she will be very proud to understand this new piece of information. Your youngster will most likely express excitement and confidence by quickly demonstrating to you what was learned. Allowing a child to enjoy this new boost of confidence may even help in other aspects of life such as schoolwork and social situations.

  3. Enhance Learning Capabilities The process of learning to play the guitar involves memorization of scales, chords, songs and more. With the requirement of memorizing such a large amount of information, your child’s brain will constantly be tested, which will help improve learning capabilities. Your child can use these stronger learning skills to excel in the classroom as well.

  4. A Fun Environment As children progress through classes, they will develop a bond with the instructor and hopefully make great improvements. Building relationships associated with such a success will create a fun and enjoyable environment for your child. He or she will begin to look forward to the next lesson. These new skills can even be shared with friends, promoting fun outside of the classroom.

If your child has been asking to take guitar lessons in Santa Clarita, it is time to seriously consider enrollment. Remember that your child will gain so many more benefits than just learning an instrument. Guitar lessons for kids build and strengthen creativity, confidence and learning capabilities. These lessons will stay with them for years to come, making the investment well worthwhile.
