While my background is in classical guitar, I enjoy exploring other genres such as jazz guitar. If you're not sure what genre you want to study, let's first learn the basics and then go from there.

I've been a writing, recording, performing and touring artist for 21 years now. I play in a national band and also do singer/songwriter solo work.
All of it came from learning how to play the guitar. I firmly believe that anybody can learn this, if they want to put in the work and effort. I guess the saying is: ''you don't work music, you play it, but it takes work to learn to play it''. Anyways, I've gathered a lot of experience over the years and still learning everyday. I really enjoy the teaching aspect of music and to make those musical connections with people. I think Keith Richards said it best when asked about the best part of being a musician,: ''you pass it on''. I will stand by that. Looking forward to meeting you!

Lars is a wonderful teacher. He is very patient and teaches guitar with great enthusiasm. I really enjoyed playing music with him and was able to learn so many new techniques and songs from him.

I've been learning from Lars for the past 6 years, and it has been a great time. He knows what he is doing, and does anything to make sure that the student gets the best instruction.
Everett M.
Hi i'm Everett and i'm 16, I've been working with Lars for a few years now, He' been helping me write and make my own songs, even taking me to a professional recording studio to have the songs recorded. He's very good at communicating with me and helping me become my own guitar player and having taught me from not knowing a single thing, To being able to play with confidence. I would highly recommend him!

I want to focus on getting students to learn how to play by ear, giving them the learning tools necessary to be able to play the favorite songs they hear without having to find the correct tab if it's even available. Some things especially solos might be to difficult even for advanced players but almost anyone can find that root note after spending some time with me! I always want to make my lessons as fun for the student as possible by helping them learn their favorite songs, even songs that don't have guitar. I've found playing along to Rap & Hip Hop songs are so much fun to play along to, and a perfect way to practice fine tuning the ability to learn by ear.

About Brandon

Creating a fun environment and showing student it’s not very difficult to learn a song by listening and applying the learning tools to help break down a song by sections. I will also teach and show how you can add your own guitar parts that sometimes makes the song sound even better, this seems to

I'm into recording and composition using simple apps - students will immediately learn fun sources for loops and ways to level themselves up by learning exercises and how they relate to their own recorded creations. By taking useful tools and making them available round the clock on a phone as well as handwritten notes during a class, students will explore midi, home recording skills, and flexibly learn a vast spread of cool handheld functions.

About Spencer

I'm so excited to get into music with the amazing spread of people out here! It's fairly daunting to take up a new skill, so I'd like to say that we're going to find a path that keeps interest and skill levels up. You are not required to suffer. Using several fun (and, importantly, very free) apps

Eugene is not only a nice person but also an excellent teacher. Looking forward to attend the next class!
Joshua S.
I really enjoyed working through beginner/intermediate classical guitar with Gene. He was always prepared and very knowledgeable about the different pieces we were working on. He helped my technique tremendously, and structured my progress in a way I wouldn't have been able to do myself. If you are serious about wanting to learn guitar I strongly recommend getting a teacher, and if you live in the Boston area I highly recommend Gene.
Mike
Gene is incredibly patient and always has materials ready for the two of us to work with. I am so lucky to be working with him as I learn a new skill.

"I've been taking guitar lessons with Ahmad for almost two months and I must say I'm very happy with how everything is going.

I've been playing guitar for years (15+) and truly I had plateaued on my guitar skills and practice routines. My whole idea of taking classes was to mainly be able to improve my overall technique and pull out of the plateau.

In just a couple of months I have been able to start building upon the library of technique tutorials Ahmad provides and keep a constant practicing routine. Ahmad is smart enough as a teacher to keep me entertained and being able to still deliver good technical advise so that I can build up my skills, without growing bored or unaware of the classes.

His schedule is surprisingly open which is a big plus for me -- I usually work 'til 7-8pm.

I see a lot of people taking classes with Ahmad at the beginner level but even if you already have some experience I'd still recommend Ahmad.

Hope this helps \m/!"
