Private Guitar Teacher

I will show you scales, chords, and soloing techniques that can help you master your improv skills and sound like a blues guitarist. Country and rock -- particularly very early rock and roll from the 1950s, which is very simple -- are both essentially the same in many ways. I can also show you how to play some more advanced songs, riffs, and solos if you want.

About Gracie

I've been playing music (my first instrument was the xylophone) since I was 10 and have been described as a natural. In retrospect, I fondly remember playing music in band class in school. Now I have years of experience playing bass and guitar as well. Some of my personal favorite artists are Pink F

So much experience and knowledge. I feel confident after first lesson. Loving it!
Steve M.
Mark is a fantastic teacher. He is very patient and positive at all times. My teenage daughter and I both take lessons and he is very comfortable with our different learning styles and speeds. I particularly appreciate his focus on teaching from real songs. His attention to detail is great and I am always impressed that he is teaching us to listen and decode the chords, the strums and subtle little moments in the music. I highly recommend Mark - even for 50-something beginners like myself.

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

"I started taking guitar lessons with Greg at the Jacksonville School of Music nearly 5 years ago when I was 11. Since I started taking lessons here, Greg has taught me nearly everything I need to know about guitar, especially music theory, which involves many things such as chord progressions and scales. This has helped me write songs and improvise guitar solos in songs. Because of his teaching skills, I was able to learn new guitar skills very quickly. I don’t think any other guitar teacher can provide me with as much guitar knowledge as Greg does. In my opinion, he is the best and most helpful guitar teacher in Jacksonville"

"Stellar teaching every time and the nicest guy to boot! Trust Ahmad, he will save you YEARS!

I have been playing the drums for more than 15 years but was always infatuated with the guitar (acoustic and electric). In my youth, I managed to figure out some basic campfire chords and riffs by my favourite bands but that was about it.

2 years ago I decided to get back to guitar, but did not make much progress trying to learn from online courses and Youtube. I was never able to adhere to a schedule or a lesson plan and I eventually found myself frustrated with practicing. I was always second guessing myself and unsure of my technique, which led to a drop in confidence. In addition, this attempt at self teaching led to MAJOR gaps in my fundamental music theory knowledge and did way more harm than good.

But I still could not put out this desire to learn the guitar.
I was lost and decided that I needed to completely reset.

I started looking for a teacher who would be able to understand my situation. I wanted to find a teacher that would help me cultivate accountability, meet my expectations for regular progress and reach my musical potential. And I am so lucky to have found Ahmad!

In the first session itself, Ahmad was able to assess my playing level, goals and recommended a path forward for me in my quest to get better! At every lesson, he knows exactly what to focus on so that practice stays fun while ensuring steady progress and while avoiding bad habits and detrimental shortcuts.

Ahmad provides detailed lesson handouts that I can refer to when practicing at home. The rhythmic notation and phrasing are always included. What really benefited me is that Ahmad provides the fingerings along with the lesson tablature, this way I am able practice exactly how I should be and build the proper muscle memory in my fingers.

I am finally learning guitar the right way!

Ahmad's philosophy is to understand 'why' and 'how' instead of memorizing notes and patterns. The knowledge he imparts will be useful and will stay with me for the rest of my guitar playing days.

Fast forward a year under Ahmad's tutelage I feel so much more confident and capable in my playing. I am now able to understand how the notes are mapped out on the guitar and how they are related to each other, it just makes sense now!

Ahmad is continuously helping me build a strong fundamental knowledge and technique base that I can build on. My lessons with Ahmad are always fun and mentally stimulating as he actively challenges me and keeps me engaged as we tackle harmonized scales, chord building, triads and technique. I especially like how he shares his experiences and precious personal tips from his time at G.I.T (Guitar Institute of Technology) in Los Angeles!

I absolutely believe that what I have learned from Ahmad, I would have never learned anywhere online. There is a renewed and sustained feeling of excitement every time I pick up my guitar.

I highly recommend Ahmad to anyone who is looking to learn to play guitar well.
I hope that others will find the same joy that I have found in learning to play guitar with Ahmad."

Mastering the Art of Zen Guitar

Billy Joel once said “I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everybody loves music.” Today, we encourage you to think about why you play the guitar.  Dreams of shredding on stage with Steve Vai aside, most musicians would cite the emotional connection to music as a big motivator. Guitar practice, after all, is like a form of meditation; think about it: there's a reason …
