Excellent first lesson. Took the time to do a thorough assessment, listened to her goals, and wrote out lots of tips, explanations and some homework. Great at explaining things. I could hear improvements in her playing already. I’m Looking forward to my daughter’s growth as a musician under his tutelage.

I have been playing guitar for 4 years now and I would love the opportunity to teach others the skill. I have a guitar already but if you want to use yours that is fine too. Music has always been a passion of mine, and I hope to get people just as excited about it as I am.

One of my students, with my help, achieved a $10,000 yearly recurring scholarship to the full time undergrad program at Berklee College of Music!

I have been through many audition processes as a musician. I received a scholarship to Berklee college of Music, was placed in high level ensembles at Berklee and in various other programs, gotten into loca/state music programs, and mentored former students to get into the program of their choice.

There is no need to stress and worry about getting into the program of your dreams. With my help, you will be able to effortlessly wow any juror you are put in front of. Hope to see you on my roster soon!

Thanks,
Umanand

Umanand was not my first tutor, but he was the first to teach me. He taught me to enjoy guitar and how to make music of my own. He knows a lot about how music works and taught me good habits, like reading sheet music instead of tabs and proper guitar posture. He built up my knowledge of the basics and encouraged me to do what felt right within them. Since he taught me, I've learned a few rock songs, but I enjoy my own music much more.

My Ableton students should expect to work on developing their technical skills in the software to the point where the software does not get in the way of their expression. This is akin to developing your technique on an acoustic instrument. We will work on creating as many finished tracks as possible to make those skills happen quickly. All of this will include furthering the student's knowledge of music theory and compositional form, whether the student is a skilled acoustic musician just starting with Ableton, or a skilled Ableton user looking to develop their compositional technique.

All of my students will work on these foundations. From there, I work with my students to create a tangible system to organize their practice and goals so that we can work on more specific areas relevant to what they want out of their musical life. This system is extremely flexible and effective. I also encourage and assist my students to use this system in other areas of their lives, such as ...

No more "air guitar"!!! Learn the basic chords or improve your knowledge base or learn to write your own music. YOU are the Master of your song!

I have enjoyed teaching at all levels, a part from creating, it is one of my passions. Teaching and watching my students practice and practice until they have mastered a chord, a song or create a beat, has always brought me joy that is priceless. Music is a strong global force that makes people feel good, gives strength, relaxed, pumped up, and brings everyone closer. I feel amazed and honored to pass my musical knowledge to you. Make time for your passion, and I will guide you.

About Amir

Music, my daughter and teaching guitar lessons are my passions. If you are testing out the guitar, want to learn chords or want to learn to create a beat, you have stopped at the right profile. I am ready to teach you to be the best musician you can be by developing techniques such as penatonic,

"Michael is incredible at teaching guitar. I took lessons with him for two years in Boston and was always welcome at his shows. He is very patient, which was necessary with me and super kind - never a negative word from him, which made me eager to learn and practise more.

I also really enjoy his music and Mexican style, which gives his compositions a cool twist.

I recommend taking lessons from Michael to anyone, who is on the lookout to learn from a born star, that is all about music!"

"Ryan is a very good teacher. I have been trying to learn how to play for a long time, but his techniques helped me grasp the basics quickly. He provided notes, recordings and homework after every class which helped a lot while practising and getting better at playing the ukelele. He was able to solve my doubts and issues effectively as he would imitate my play and figure out my problem areas and advise accordingly. He's very patient and consistent, it was a great experience learning with him!"
