Learn how to play the Blues!

Blues guitar is such a popular genre for guitar players because it allows you to access your personal creativity on such a deep level. In other words - you can learn to speak your mind and heart through the guitar!

My philosophy in teaching blues guitar is provide a solid "lick vocabulary" from the masters of the style, combined with an in-depth look at the art of improvising. You will learn to develop your own voice through studying and the greats and unlocking your own creative potential.

I began playing the piano at age seven and advanced to honors recitals of Certificate of Merit through the Music Teachers' Association of California (MTAC). I have experience teaching ages 4-65 and beginning through early-intermediate levels. Beginners are my specialty and I currently teach 12 piano students a week. I use a variety of materials like flashcards and book series to teach classical, jazz, pop, and sacred styles: Alfred’s Basic Piano Library, Bastien Basics, Bastien & Bastien, Faber’s Piano Adventures, FunTime Faber & Faber, Piano for the Older Beginner, Alfred Masterworks, and Hal Leonard Songs from Disney. Students have the options of borrowing my used books or purchasing new books.

Hannah is a lovely person to be with and a really nice teacher. She helped me understand my drawings from a different point of view, she helped me figure out resources to make my drawings better and she gave me some ideas about how to weave the words into my drawings. They were excellent ideas and I felt invigorated and refreshed when I left.

Shahrzad has a way of keeping my 11 y.o. son engaged throughout the entire lesson. He has fun, but at the same time he is being challenged. He practices without us even asking,. He will start orchestra in middle school this year and I know he will be ready!
Shirley Y.
Shahrzad was excellent. She teaches with great passion and knows what to point out on my weakness. Not only is she thorough, she also knows when to demonstrate the piece of music. I really enjoyed my lesson with her. Thank you.

Berklee College of Music '16 - Voice principle, B.A. Songwriting
I have taken a lot of voice lessons with a lot of different voice teachers. Most teachers are hard and fast in their opinions about styles that are "worthy" or "not worthy" of teaching. I am confident in the fact that learning R&B is no better or worse than learning classical music, musical theater or jazz or rock. They ALL provide benefits to the voice, to the musician. I've sung in a wide variety of ensembles and styles myself, from psychedelic rock to 'Singin' in the Rain' to Jazz to classical arias. My goal is to find music that moves the student emotionally wether it was on the radio or not. From there we can mix in exercises and adaptations the emphasize vocal health, musicianship and fun. After all, if it isn't fun or cathartic, why make music at all? I also play piano and guitar, with a degree in Songwriting from Berklee CoM, so I'm well equipped to assist young singer/songwriters.

Top of the line lessons & content. Enjoying how much progress I’ve made in such little amount of time. Thanks Eric
Jim Castleton
Eric Ferrer teaching style is very clear/simple/ and intuitive. He really shows you there’s simplicity in learning anything. I thought the piano was a stride i always wanted to take on. Yet with Eric the process in learning how to use both hands was so simple that I was very surprised.
John M.
I recently bought a drum set to starting how to play but coming from no experience I had no idea what I was doing. I felt sloppy and uncoordinated so I decided to try and find a teacher that can meet my schedule/expectations. That is when I stumbled upon Eric Ferrer’s profile. The lessons were soooooo Simplistic 😌 he really gave me peace of mind. Eric Broke the process into its barebones and revealed how simple it is to learn drums. I love my new teacher, he has the best patience, attitude, and commitment to you the student and the lesson.

The "Real World" style. Chords - Riffs - Scales - Songs - Basic Theory - Tabs - which can branch out into song writing and recording techniques. I start out with the basics and then focus on switching - getting your fingers moving/stretching - getting them ready for scales and songs. Different patterns and techniques of picking and strumming. Understanding timing and attention to movement. I don't teach traditional guitar musical notes with staff reading. Guitar Tabs I will teach you and easy exercises. For advanced beginners to intermediate I can proceed with what you need help with next by hearing your goals and what you'd like to cover whether it's more techniques - chords - playing style - song writing - techniques for studio playing.

David fostered my daughter's love of the clarinet and helped her to improve and accomplish her musical goals. Whether the goal was to make District Band in High School, to successfully audition in college, or to improve sound & technique, David Blumberg has provided motivation and technical expertise!"

"I've been taking lessons from Ahmad for a couple years and can say he is a very engaging and knowledgeable instructor. Ahmad is experienced in many different styles of music and can help you to play anything you want. He will also show you the techniques necessary to play any song and the theory to go along with it. It's a bit overwhelming, as learning guitar isn't an easy process, but Ahmad is more than capable of guiding you wherever you want to go.

Ahmad was recommended to me by a co-worker but prior to discovering him I researched a few other instructors. Ahmad seems to be quite generous with his time and fees compared to other instructors I researched. He is also very flexible when it comes to teaching venue and will teach at your house if desired.

Based on my experience over the past two years I can highly recommend Ahmad Lee if you are looking for guitar instruction."

"Troy is the best vocal instructor ever! I feel like I hit the jackpot in finding him as my coach. He is extremely knowledgeable and great at communicating concepts that might otherwise be difficult to understand. My vocal technique and confidence has improved so much since I started taking lessons from Troy in September 2014. I was so impressed with my progress with Troy that I have now expanded my lessons to twice a week. Troy is great at making a plan to help me achieve my goals, and he is right with me every step of the way. I am so grateful to have an instructor that not only helps me get better, but also has an inspiring attitude to share a love for music."
