About Ayme
Music can be as simple or as intricate as you want to make it. I will to teach you how to make the most of whatever knowledge and skill you have and to have fun while you do it. My tastes are all across the board, rock and roll, country, metal, opera, I love it all. So, let me know what you are into and we can go from there.
I started playing guitar about 20 years ago and have fronted several bands that have played all over Chicago and beyond. Although I have studied ethnomusicology, theory, and composition in college, I owe my greatest debt to the Chicago musicians who inspired and later taught me. I began my private studies in flamenco guitar with Tomas de Utrera, Kelan Phil Cohran voice and theory, Hamid Drake instructed me on hand drumming, and from Rockin' Johnny Burgin I learned about the soul of blues guitar. Music is my first
love, and continues to be an endless fascination for me.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe the pursuit of musical knowledge and skill should be a fun adventure and therefore, in each and every lesson with me I hope that there is laughter. I like to start off finding out what you are interested in learning, then I will create a curriculum based on those interests. I like to get students going right away playing songs so they don't get bored. By the end of three months you should have a nice little repertoire of 6 or so songs in different keys and a beginning knowledge of your instrument and by six months we will have moved into scales, solos and a bit of theory based on your progression.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room, street parking. I have plenty of guitars, amps, pedals and tuners here. I also have audio recording software so we can record your lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have guitar and tuner, student should also have a guitar.

*** Specialties ***
I would say I am best a teaching rock and blues guitar. I have also studied theory and flamenco guitar and would be able to teach beginners.

Claire is a very good teacher. Highly recommended. The pacing of the lessons is both challenging and comfortable. I appreciate her demos and duets with me as these help me to practice listening and anticipate playing with others in the future. I've had six 45-minute lessons so far and I feel I've learned a lot and have improved significantly, but I'm also aware of the areas that need improvement. I look forward to continuing to take lessons with Claire.

Paul is a very talented educator. I am in a unique situation, needing to learn guitar for my job. After working with Paul, my lessons have become the highlight of my week. I am eager to practice and work on new techniques he introduces to my skillset. He works very hard, so I always appreciate when he is flexible with my changing schedule. Before Paul, I had a teacher who simply did not meet my learning style. Paul is incredible. Thank you so much. Learning guitar has become my new passion project and I enjoy my lessons so much!

Paul is a phenomenal instructor with the personality and charisma it takes to teach such a distinguished instrument. Whether you are trying to learn 3 chords to impress a special someone or you have a nerve racking collegiate performance, Paul will be able to help. There is a list of qualities that come to mind when I think of the best instructors I've had and Paul checks off all those things. He is extremely helpful, he is mindful of your wants and needs in parallel to your skill level, he has a gift for attention to detail, he is passionate about the subtle art of the guitar, and he pushes you as a musician in discipline and skill. Highly recommended and easily works with your schedule.

My daughter Mina has been taking guitar in a group lesson for a couple of years and played well. She would play only once a week with her peers, in class. She would rarely practice on her own.

Only a few months ago I found Golnar, through word of mouth. I wanted someone who had a good background teaching and she had 8 years. Also it was important to find someone who is professional and it's their career not just are teaching on the side. Golnar has her Master's in music which impressed me and has great passion for her music.

I thought that my daughter would benefit from her teachings. So my daughter has been taking an hour lessons on a weekly basis.
Her teacher finds her Classical and Jazz fun music that my daughter likes. Mina loves her teacher. I think because she loves her teacher and she is working for a goal, she practices everyday for more than an hour on her own. Mina has excelled in guitar in the last 2 months more than she did in a group lesson the last 2 years. In fact, she now loves guitar so much that as soon as she walks through the door from school she picks up her guitar and starts playing.
A really good teacher, an inspiration to a child is hard to come by...thank you for all you do!
Golnar prepared Mina in a few months for her auditions to OCSA (Orange County School of ARTS) and she got ACCEPTED!
I am very grateful to have a teacher like Golnar in Mina's life...and to bring live music to our home.
