Solid guy with diverse chops. I can learn a lot from his instruction.
Itati S.
I took 5 lessons with Ed, very great instructor. I learned a lot in those few lessons. He helped with with my pitch and with my accent that I had to prepare for an audition. With his help I was accepted into my high school’s A cappella group “Madrigals” and overall I would recommend. We made it work and tried to make the best out of the situation. Great experience:)

My kids thoroughly enjoyed lessons with Ed (both guitar and piano). Lessons started with my 7yo and when his brother turned 4yo, he started as well.

Methods: Your goals are central to my teaching. I will work with you to make sure we are on the right path to achieving them. I make sure to also get a good grasp of each student's learning style. I make custom learning materials for each lesson, which I spend lots of careful thought and time on to ensure the best experience. It's important that we focus on what you want to learn and have fun doing it! By taking this customized approach, I am able to adapt things and build on them to get you where you want to be. We will also learn songs of your choosing, possibly adapted to your current playing level.

Background: I have been playing for over 15 years and have a degree from Berklee College of Music. I teach beginning and intermediate students, as well as advanced players who want to delve into music theory. In addition to teaching, I have experience in music production, songwriting, and playing live and in the studio. I'm just as open to playing pop and rock songs (seriously, no ...

I have been playing guitar for over 30 years—since 1987—and I'm ready to pass my knowledge and experience along to you. I teach all ages, all levels, and all styles (but my specialties are rock and blues). I am a member of Mu Phi Epsilon, the international professional music fraternity, having been initiated in 1998 at Abilene Christian University in Abilene, Texas, while I was attending their music education program.

I'm based in Marietta/East Cobb (just outside of Atlanta), but I'm proud to offer lessons to almost anywhere* that the internet and your computer can reach.

Edwin is a fantastic teacher and so patient. I am amazed at how much my son has learned in just a couple lessons.
David S.
Had an excellent initial discussion with my instructor, Edwin, today. It was big picture but at the same time Edwin’s comments & suggestions gave me confidence in his command of the art (engineering, arrangement, composition & structure, and playing techniques), all the things I’m going to need help with to take my musical projects to another level.
Mike
Edwin is chill, flexible, and conveys a ton of relevant practice tips every lesson.

Private Guitar Teacher

I have played blues, hard rock, fingerpicking, folk, and jazz music on the guitar since 2006. I have played onstage in rock bands and jazz combos and received years of private instruction. I am a chronic improviser, a composer, a creative musician, and a music theory geek.

My enthusiasm for the guitar is related to its irreplaceable role in genres that are uniquely and beautifully American like blues, bluegrass, and rock 'n' roll.

I can teach you how to play the basics, how to solo, how to write a song, how to play jazz chords, how to play rock riffs, how to groove, how to fingerpick, or whatever you want to learn.

Check out my guitar lesson demo video on my profile to hear me play!

"My daughter has been with Ahmad for over 4 years now. They have progressed through lessons, he inspires and challenges my daughter to write amazing music. When my daughter looks back at her life in college, I believe strongly she will regard Ahmad as one of the most important and influential pe in her life. Ahmad is an amazing teacher period, and now all my friends go to him too. He gets the best work out of his students because he inspires them as an amazing musician.
We have taken many music lessons over the years, but my daughter continues to want to go to these lessons enthusiastically ever time."

His technique in teaching allowed my son to enjoy learning guitar by playing songs he wanted to play. This made him want to practice just for the fun of it! Alex taught my son from the time he was 9 years old until he was 15. The easy going, positive attitude Alex exudes encouraged my son along his journey and made a strong bond and connection between the two of them. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone who would like to learn to play guitar to sign up for lessons with Alex!"

"Steve has been a fellow teacher of mine for over a decade. We've shared stories, compared notes (no pun intended), and talked about how awesome it is to be able to give our students all of the knowledge we've gained through thousands of hours of teaching experience and playing our instruments. Steve also has a professional sound setup for online teaching that makes remote learning easier for the student. I highly recommend Steve for piano, guitar, and/or drum lessons. Someone with that kind of versatility and education should not be passed up when searching for a teacher."

Somehow the riffy, over-reverbed sound of early 60s pop-rock manages to perfectly evoke a very specific time and place while at the same time remaining timeless and eternally fresh. Addictive hooks, simple but catchy lead lines, and that irresistible tone! What’s not to love? Here are three well-known surf rock songs that are great choices for beginners just starting out on guitar. Each offers a different challenge, and a different s …
