I have been meaning to write this review for a while. I have been coming to Ahmad for lessons for about 6 months. I have tried on two occasions to learn guitar from other instructors but quickly became frustrated and gave up. My time with Ahmad has been a completely different experience. He is a fantastic instructor and he focuses on building the fundamentals. Using a foreign language as an analogy, my other instructors started by just teaching me how to pronounce different phrases, without teaching what the individual words meant or how to modify the sentences. Ahmad starts by teaching the vocabulary and how to construct any sentence you want. He is very patient, sends you home with excellent lessons to practice, and once you get to the point where you simply need time to improve technique before you can advance any further, he switches to teaching basic music theory, so that you can continue to learn while you wait for your hands to catch up with your brain.

If you want to spend the least amount of money on guitar lessons, I would encourage you to go learn from some college kid, as you will spend $80 on one or two lessons and then just give up. If you want to actually learn how to play guitar, come see Ahmad.

I have been working with Ahmad for over a year now. I spent some time trying to learn guitar myself, from books and from online teachers, but was never able to make any real progress until I met Ahmad. Immediately he was able to move me in the right direction through 1 on 1 tutoring and by providing me with the right materials to build my confidence and skills. As a person with a family and somewhat demanding job it's always tough to find the time to work on guitar practice, but Ahmad works with me and paces everything well to build my skills while keeping it fun and challenging. It's always a delight to join Ahmad for lessons - his studio is convenient (with easy free street parking) and comfortable with nice natural light.
I can't recommend Ahmad highly enough - He's an absolute pleasure to work with. He's friendly, considerate, and an amazing guitar teacher. Since starting guitar lessons with Ahmad my playing has risen to a new level and my enjoyment of guitar in general his increased exponentially. I find myself always looking forward to my lessons!
Ivan
Ahmad brought my playing to a new level in a very short period of time. I had been stuck and not making much progress with my improvisational skills for the better part of a year when I first started lessons with him. I was impressed by his ability to quickly analyze my playing and knowledge and suggest some focus areas. After working on various intervals, I began to feel a magnetic pull in my fingers when playing. The intervals enabled me to make the connection between the licks and lines in my head and the physical fret board on the fly during improvisational sessions.

Ahmad is extremely organized. He has folders full of exercises for every topic imaginable. His exercises are clearly written with specifics on how to effectively practice them, and they progress in an incremental and logical fashion. This level of organization allows you to get the most out of your time with Ahmad. He can quickly retrieve exercises for a topic, without having to stop and think, or waste time on transcription.

I have a demanding schedule which only allows me time for lessons once a month. Even at such a low frequency, I leave every lesson with more than enough material to keep me busy. Ahmad has been very flexible working with me and changes that arise in my schedule. On top of all of this, Ahmad is a genuinely pleasant person to spend time with and I really look forward to our time together. For me, I was an intermediate player looking to get to the next step. But I'm confident that Ahmad could accelerate anyone's playing at any level.

Tommy is a great choice. He makes it very easy to understand key concepts you need to know when playing piano. I’m a beginner and my first couple of lessons with him were productive, informative and fun as well. He’s very talented with his craft and I recommend him on all levels!! Very satisfied.

I've been learning how to play piano from Tommy for a few months now, with no experience at all and, I can honestly say I never would have thought I'd progress as quickly as I did! He's very motivational and makes learning piano an enjoyable and fun experience. He makes it super easy to follow along! 10/10 highly recommend his lessons!! :)

I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation in sight reading, technique and music theory. While learning classical piano typically calls for reading sheet music, I may take non-traditional methods for classical music such as learning by ear or with chords depending on the student's needs.

"Ivan is a great teacher who knows how to interact and teach kids in a way which makes them excited to play piano. Before Ivan was my teacher I didn’t really have an interest in piano but as he came along he helped me develop a urge to be better in piano. Ivan also has patience with kids and helps them learn how to get the right notes and memorize the songs effectively. Ivan didn’t just teach me how to memorize songs he taught me how to read the notes and be able to play the piano without memorizing notes on a sheet of paper. He is a great mentor and a better person"
