If you are seeking to develop the skills necessary to become a competent guitarist that can find comfortability playing in any genre, you have come to the right place! I am a touring rock and metal musician and have been playing guitar and drums professionally for 14+ years, with 4 LPs under my belt along with numerous singles, splits and EPs. In my lessons, we will explore various techniques and topics ranging from basic music theory topics like the circle of fifths to advanced techniques such as sweep picking and tapping. I emphasize not only understanding the skills one needs to play their favorite riffs but developing an ear for relative pitch, songwriting and the tone one desires to achieve what they are hearing in their head. My genre specializations are in rock and heavy metal. All skill levels are welcome!

I have a M.M. in vocal performance from the Chicago College of Performing Arts and have extensive operatic training. I teach an open throat technique (appoggio) that allows the singer to sing with freedom, and access their entire range evenly. I also work with students to develop style, interpretation, languages, and acting ability.

I have been taking voice lessons with Rob for probably about 2 years now, and he is amazing! He helped me with all of my vocal material for my college auditions, and got my into the musical theatre program at my first choice of school! He has also provided me with tons of knowledge and advice about stuff like auditions and working in the field. Rob has helped me go out of my comfort zone and greatly expanded my repertoire, and I am so grateful for him!
Derek
I began working with Rob about three years ago.. He is one of the most personable teachers that I have ever worked with. The atmosphere never feels like a teacher/ student situation, but more like two friends who are working together to work toward a common goal. He teaches with compassion and understanding at all times, and is never condescending. His talent, knowledge and skill are immense. As a result, I am studying pieces that I would have thought beyond my range. Very highly recommend him.
Peter
I admire Rob as a singer so much. His tone is so good and he makes live performance look so effortless. I'm not that strong of a singer yet, but we are making progress to improve my tone. He's also teaching me how to deliver a stronger performance using stage presence and movement, as well as voice. It helps that he has a great ear for pitch too, so I know when I am singing well. He's encouraging as well as honest, and I look forward to showing off my improved skills sometime soon!

"Ahmad has opened up the world of music to me. Before I started taking lessons with Ahmad, music was simply something I enjoyed listening to, but was a bit of an abstraction. I had always wanted to learn an instrument, specifically the guitar, but had suffered an injury to my finger when I was a teenager and thought there was little point in trying with a significant handicap. Now at middle age I decided to try anyway.

For two years I've been taking lessons with Ahmad every week and have found a lifelong hobby. Ahmad has been patient and understanding to my level of ability and has guided me to not only improve dramatically my level of playing, but also has taught me the basic fundamentals of music which makes me appreciate listening to and playing music more than I ever had. Ahmad is a gifted teacher who can quickly uncover and fix fundamental problems with technique and builds lesson plans to teach one how to play the guitar as a musical instrument.

I am so happy I found Ahmad. He has given me a lifelong passion to improve my playing and a deeper understanding of the music I've loved my entire life. If you've ever thought about learning the guitar, do yourself a favor and see Ahmad now."

What Are the Best Songs to Sing for an Audition?

Many of us have seen it happen while watching singing competition shows like The Voice, American Idol, or The X Factor— “Your voice is incredible, but the song choice was all wrong.”  It usually ends with an elimination, especially if it's a consistent pattern.  You might love a certain genre of music, but knowing whether a song is a good fit for your voice and audition is critical. Like many things, success is dependent on knowing your strengths and showcasing them.  So what are the b …

10 Proven Steps For Writing Lyrics That Stick

The late Amy Winehouse tribute album Lioness: Hidden Treasures has been making waves on the UK music charts, securing the #1 spot just days after its release.  Although the posthumous album has had its share of drama and questionable reviews, the collection - with its mix of covers and raw, unfinished tunes polished up by the producers - seems fitting in depicting Amy as the troubled, tattered star that she was. As she sings at the start of "Best Friends, Right?": "I can't wait to get away f …
