I specialize in blues, rock and funk guitar on both the electric and acoustic, I also teach the electric bass and the banjo.

I believe that music is the ultimate form of SELF expression so it is important that you tell me what inspires YOU and what your personal music goals are. Their are multiple ways to conceptualize the music and i will be your ally in finding what ways work best for you. i will customize lesson plans based on your personal music journey and where you want to get in your playing. whether you want to compose your own symphonies, write your own concept album, play some covers on the weekends, or just better yourself as a human being it would be my honor to teach you

Guitar students start with five subjects.

1) Technique is concerned with the development of the physical mechanics involved in playing the instrument.

2) Scales are a part of basic music vocabulary and building blocks of the musical language.

3) Chords are also basic vocabulary of the musical language.

4) Note reading is not required for every student. It really depends on the students' goals. However, I strongly encourage everyone learn to read musical notation, (more than tablature). Literacy in reading music is analogous to literacy in reading in our English language. Can you imagine how much smaller our world would be if we couldn't read?

5) Songs utilize the skills and concepts of all the previously mentioned subjects and are the goal of studying music. The student chooses what songs they want to play, guided by my suggestions; Jazz, rock, blues, country, bluegrass, R &B - "How deep is the ocean, how high is the sky?"

A beginning student will practice all

I cover guitar basics, theory and technique, but with guitar I like to focus the lessons around songs which the student and/or I choose.

I teach various styles, on acoustic or electric (with or without pedals) Also, if you're a great singer but would like to learn how to play and sing at the same time I can help you with that as well!

About Ramona

I'm a professional musician and audio engineer. I'm a classically trained pianist and I offer lessons in piano, guitar, voice, music theory, music recording, music performance and songwriting. I received my music education from The Brooklyn Music School, Cornell University and the The Institute

He has musical ability and a real talent for teaching. He has taken someone like me with iron hands and helped me make this more than 10 year journey a learning experience that has opened thought pathways experiences. I am so glad that I found Ahmad and the guitar -- I started when I was already past 50 - so it is never too late to start to learn."
