Tom was absolutely fantastic. He seemed to be genuinely interested in my progress and just as excited as I was about me picking up the piano again - over 20 years since I’d last had lessons - which was an excellent motivator. I may have gone home and practices for a few hours. I look forward to continuing my lessons with him.

Tom was great during the first piano lesson. He was well prepared with materials to present to my son, who's taken other musical instruction for a couple of years in guitar & drums. He was able to assess his abilities, and work the lesson up to his ability within the first hour. My son enjoyed the interactive lesson!

Hi! Thank you for your interest in studying with me.

My name is Elisa and I am a Berklee College of Music alumni with a Bachelor of Music in Guitar Performance and Jazz Composition, and a minor in Conducting—Contemporary Track—. I have played guitar for 15 years, taught guitar and music lessons for over 5 years, and have a 10+ years experience with live performance in different genres (rock, jazz, pop and musical theatre).

I enjoy teaching, in all its aspects. I like giving lessons and advice, motivating and helping students so that they can get the most out of a lesson, in a one on one as well as in a classroom environment. If I find myself unprepared in front of students’ questions, I do my best to provide a satisfactory answer. I like being challenged and conducting further research about what my students would like to know. I love working with people of all ages, from children to adults, and with different goals in music.

About Elisa

Elisa is a guitarist, composer, arranger and conductor based in Boston, MA. Despite not being born in a family of musicians, Elisa's musical talent manifested itself since she was a little girl. During preschool and elementary school, her natural inclination towards music was evident in her musi

My name is Peter Gardner, and I am an English professor and professional clarinetist, teaching at Berklee College of Music. Elisa was one of our English tutors in the Liberal Arts Department at the college for four years, and she was one of the most engaging and productive tutors I have supervised in my 35 years running the tutoring program. She is bright, conscientious, gregarious, and humorous and, simply, a wonderful person to be around. She is a natural born teacher and connects very well with her students, both on a personal and academic level. I also know her to be an excellent musician, with an extensive background in both performing and teaching, and well-versed in all styles of guitar playing. I cannot speak highly enough about Elisa as a person, a teacher, and an artist. I recommend her to you, at whatever level you're at, as much as I have ever recommended anyone!

Best,

Peter Gardner

"I've been working with Brian for four months now and have made excellent progress on guitar. Brian quickly adjusted to my experience level and has done an outstanding job of removing long-standing bad habits and reinforcing the good ones. He has a fresh approach which ensures students don't get bored and, best of all, instills confidence and a good stage presence. I'm on my way to being a better guitar player but more importantly, a better musician. I recommend Brian without reservation."

"As a complete beginner, I began searching for a guitar teacher. Upon meeting Ahmad, I was struck immediately by his passion for music and teaching. That was what kept me coming back to the lessons.

Having now spent a year and a half with Ahmad, my progress has been phenomenal.

As a former music major studying saxophone, I have had my share of music teachers. I can say that Ahmad has been the most influential and effective of all. His manageable lessons challenge you enough to make you better without overwhelming you with techniques and theory that you don't understand. Every lesson builds on priors so that you are not wasting time learning scattered and incomplete lessons that you may find in books or video lessons on youtube.

We began simply learning pentatonic scales to build basic right and left hand technique. After spending months learning this, we moved onto major scales, and understanding harmonizing and more music theory. Throughout this, we have also spent time on learning basic rhythms.

Finally, we have moved onto modes, arpeggios, and blues. Although there was a lot of work learning to play scales and arpeggios, it was absolutely necessary in order to understand how to solo over rock and blues music. While I have a long way to go with the instrument, it is so satisfying to have the tools to write music, play solos, and make them sound like you know what you are doing. I would have never been able to do this without Ahmad.

Ahmad is not a magician--you have to put in the work yourself. But he makes your practice efficient so that your time is spent learning valuable skills, instead of bad habits.

If I had to do it all over again, I would have started sooner!"
