Music lessons with me are vibrant in all the sense of the word, and at the same time my abilities to connect with the students are seamless. I had the opportunity to work with young kids from the age of four years old to forty years of age, because of this I have developed a special kind of patience that transcends my students and the classes.

Aside from muy musical background, I am from Mexico, Veracruz where there are so many sounds and rhythms that are part of me and that are very unique. Also, my travels around places like Brazil and Italy has given me a peculiar way to see, think and express music.

My methode of improvisation is based in concepts developed with the help of my mentor, the Master Drummer Michael Carvin.

About Eduardo

Im a classical trained guitarist, I did my classical studies in UDLAP (Mexico) under the mentor-ship of the great cuban educator and guitarist Manuel Espinás and did my counterpoint studies with the American composer Brian Banks. I worked in the musicology field in Mexico collaborating with importa

"Ahmad is great. I started with him in November last year and have been seeing him weekly since. He's that perfect blend of very, very smart about guitar+music, but down to earth in his style and methodology. He's also a great guy and makes lessons fun. I discovered Ahmad from the Internet then found out that a close friend had learned guitar from him a couple of years ago. She raves about him. Bottom-line: if you're looking for quality guitar instruction from a genuine and very capable teacher you can't do better than Ahmad."

"I've been taking lessons for 3 years now with Ahmad. My classical guitar ambitions are frequently met with technical and musical obstacles, and Ahmad has always helped me work through them and keep me moving forward.

I have also been working on music theory and basic guitar chords - Ahmad has helped guide me to a better understanding and technical proficiency.

Lessons are conducted in a friendly and supportive way and his positive attitude plays a vital role in motivating me to keep working at guitar. I think no matter what your guitar goals are, Ahmad can help you move improve and keep taking it to the next level."

Should Classical Violinists Learn to Improvise?

A few weeks ago the Washington Post published an article about musician Hannah Hanh and her struggles with improvisation.  As a classical violinist, she hadn't had much training for spontaneity, naturally. The article points out improvisation as a technique that has fallen by the wayside for many performers these days. And it asks an interesting question: Can (and should) classical musicians learn to improvise? We've talked a lot about improvising on the guitar and drums, but where do classi …
