Private Electric Guitar Teacher

I have taught guitar since 2012 and have been playing since 2000. I am happy to take students at the beginner and intermediate levels. I believe strongly in integrating music theory and ultimately moving students toward musical self-suffiency, rather than focusing exclusively on learning particular pieces.

About Ben

Hi, there! My name is Ben and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have taught students of all ages from 3 to adult. I have experience not just with teaching but also with writing, recording, and performing music in successful bands and on multiple instruments

Ben has been instructing my 2 kids (now aged 11 and 9) in-home for at least 5 years. We started off with piano for the first few years but then switched to a combination of piano and acoustic guitar (half a session dedicated to each instrument).

He is patient, kind, and highly knowledgeable. I clearly see the upward trajectory in my kids' musical capabilities. One of my kids can be difficult to deal with, especially when he is tired, but Ben would mold his approach to the lesson on the spot to keep my kid engaged (e.g., instead of continuing the lesson on the actual piano, he'd switch to a fun music-oriented game).

I hadn't played a musical instrument since elementary school when I started Ukulele lessons with Ben. Ben started from the beginning, answered all my questions along the way, and built upon that information in each lesson. It wasn't in a didactic way, but in a way that was really customized to fit my Ukulele lesson goals. Ben's teaching style is very flexible also. I had some Ukulele lesson books I had been gifted and we worked from those. I didn't feel that I had to buy a bunch of additional equipment, books, etc.

I recommend Ben as a music teacher. He is understanding, encouraging, and inspirational. I am looking forward to continuing lessons with Ben and JC Instrumental.

Ben has been working with our daughter since January 2019, when she turned 6 1/2. He arrives at our home on time each week and he works with her at an age appropriate level. We appreciate that he recognizes the effort she puts into the weeks when she practices often and he gently makes her aware when she hasn't practiced enough. He always speaks with her in a kind way and with us in a collaborative manner. We all want her to enjoy her piano experience, and we are thankful to have found Ben just a few blocks away from our home.

Tim is an amazing teacher! I recently started playing guitar and Tim has helped me improve with each lesson. He is kind, understanding, patient, and knowledgable. Tim teaches students of all levels. If you do well in your lesson, he might even treat you to a homemade Norwegian cat cookie:)

Private Electric Guitar Teacher

The main goal of my lessons is for my students to genuinely enjoy the guitar and to walk away excited to put their knowledge into action. As someone who has been studying the guitar for 15+ years, I know the challenges of practicing and moving beyond the technical knowledge of the instrument. I help my students learn using their personal musical interests and inspirations. All ages and abilities welcome.

About Franklin

As a guitarist, composer, and educator, music has always been at the heart of life. I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a BM in Jazz Composition and recently graduated from NYU with a MM in Jazz Studies, where I also taught as an adjunct guitar instructor. Currently based in New York,

Online Electric Guitar Teacher

I can show you how to improvise any scale or chord on the guitar without reading a single piece of music notation, tab, or chord chart, so that you can play the music that lives within you.

Maybe you want to become a songwriter, or a composer. Or maybe you just want to jam with friends or play your favorite songs by ear. Either way, the process is the same.

I can teach you to:
✅ Write your own songs and compose your own music
✅ Jam with friends
✅ Play any chord and scale on the fly even if you’ve never played it before
✅ Learn music theory by ear
✅ Recognize chords as clearly as you’d recognize colors
✅ Play freely and without restrictions in any musical key

Without:
❌ Studying “licks”
❌ Obsessing over complicated music theory
❌ Getting stuck on restrictive chord charts and scale patterns
❌ Doing exercises that don’t have musical context or application
❌ Learning other people’s music (unless you want to)
❌ Reading music notation, tabs, and chord charts

About Morgan

I am a songwriter and composer with an education in classical and jazz guitar, I started playing 13 years ago, and have definitely had hit my share of plateaus along the way which led me to enrolling in music school. In school, I learned a lot about the intellectual side of music, but I fel

Picture this....you get home after a long day of work or school, you feel a little stressed out by the world, wishing you had more time to get the endless list of things done and more energy to do them.....

Instead of turning on Netflix and zoning out, you pick up your guitar and play your favorite song.

Feels pretty great right?!

Learning to play an instrument is one of life's most rewarding endeavors, that just keeps getting better the longer you pursue it.

With playing an instrument, you will have something you love to do and look forward to doing every single day, enriching your life and those around you.

If you'd like to chat or have any questions just shoot me a message and I'll get back asap :)

Thanks for checking out my profile and I hope to hear from you soon.

Online Electric Guitar Teacher

It’s my passion to see people learn to play the guitar. I spent 3 years being trained in electric/lead, classical, blues, rock and jazz. I’ve been teaching people how to play music for almost 10 years. I have expertise in learning how to play with a band and I perform on a weekly basis. I am gifted in identifying your strengths and goals, then developing you into the musician that you want to be. From people who want to be on a big stage to those who just want to have a fun hobby, I can get you where you want to go!

About Cole

"As someone who has played guitar for over ten years and taken lessons from several other accomplished guitar teachers, I can safely say that Ahmad is the best guitar teacher I've taken lessons from.

He determines what you hope to take away from the lessons and what your goals are as a player and is very dedicated to finding a way to get you there that is both educational and enjoyable. His instruction is very flexible and has no hesitation dropping one exercise and focusing more on styles of learning that are suitable for you as a student.

For someone who has been playing for a long time he was quickly able to open up a whole new set of possibilities and refresh the instrument for me as well as better my understanding of music harmony and melody in general."

"Ahmad is a fantastic teacher. No matter what skill level you are coming in, he can make you better. He makes sure that lessons focus on the songs/topics that you are interested in and has great patience.

Many times we think of learning guitar, or music in general, as a daunting task, but Ahmad has shown me how to think about playing guitar in a way that is approachable. He does a great job of mixing in theory where appropriate/necessary and will give more confidence in your ability to learn this great instrument than you have ever had!"
