I am a part-time musician, currently playing in two bands as a rhythm/lead guitarist and lead singer. Being able to create and express yourself through the musical art form is, in my opinion one of the most therapeutic, empowering, and beautiful experiences in life. My passion for teaching stems from my own experience when starting to play the guitar. Unlike most musicians, I started relatively later in life in my mid 20's. I was eager to learn but struggled to find lessons and teachers that could make music theory and its application to the instrument make sense. After countless hours spent on YouTube, online memberships, and group lessons, I finally found an instructor who has been my mentor for the past 4 years, who was able to make music theory interesting and easily applicable. As a result I was able to build off this invaluable gift of knowledge, find my own style and sound, as well as a unique approach to sharing this wisdom with others.

I take a streamlined approach in ...

I have developed a standardized, systematic approach to guitar instruction based on the belt system used by traditional martial arts. As students progress through the ranks, they are awarded different color “belts”. Beginners are white belts. The next level is yellow belt. Orange is next followed by red, purple, blue, and finally a black belt! I use pre existing text books so that the learning material is organized and easily accessible. I have had great success with my methods and my system makes the learning a lot more fun. I can also customize lessons for intermediate to advanced students who need to focus on certain key areas and can also prepare students for college entrance auditions. Group classes are available in special subject such as theory, note reading and advanced harmonic and melodic concepts. I am an energetic and enthusiastic instructor who insures that students enjoy their learning experience while being able to gauge their progress toward their personal musical ...

About Billy

Most of what I do as an instructor stems from my frustration as a student. I am convinced that the way I was taught to play music on the guitar is NOT the best way to learn it. I have spent a great deal of time developing my own methodology and feel as though I have a much better way to convey info

Like most guitarists, I had always wanted to play the guitar as a little kid. Luckily, my parents finally caved to the request (ok ok, incessant begging) and I began my guitar journey at the age of 11. After now 20 years of playing and 12 years of teaching, I am excited to share my experience and t

"My son is almost 6 and has been taking guitar lessons with Jordan for a few months now and I am shocked at how much progress my son has made in that short amount of time...especially considering that my son has ADHD and Tourette's Syndrome, which means that my son does not practice that much because of his limited ability to focus, amongst other things. However, despite all this, Jordan is just so patient and kind and creates a safe and calm environment for son to learn and feel good about his achievements, no matter how small they may be....and I can see that my son is building confidence and feeling good about himself. You can't ask for more that that! In addition, Jordan is very accommodating to schedules...he is always willing to move things around to fit a lesson into our schedule, which is always crazy since we have 3 small kids. A++++"

"I could not be happier with Jordan as my instructor. I had tried learning the guitar several years ago and gave up after getting frustrated with my lack of progress. With Jordan's patient and professional guidance, I have learned more in 2 months than I did for nearly a year previously. His thoughtful and professional approach is teaching me not only how to play, but to understand how to read and understand music. He is helping me build a strong foundation based on steady and fun learning at my pace. I am now seeing week to week progress, and I am excited about continuing my lessons with Jordan and the enjoyment that playing the guitar will bring to me for years to come."

"My lessons with Arron have been extremely beneficial and I recommend him to anyone that is trying to learn or get better at playing guitar. I have been playing guitar for a while now and what I’ve learned the most from Aaron is how to slow down and practice efficiently. He has taught me many different tools for practicing musical scales and has also been able to give me the “why” to all his methods. I’ve noticed so much progress in my playing and I’m so thankful."

"I've been taking guitar lessons from Ahmad for about 2 1/2 years now and I couldn't be happier with the quality of his instruction. He really understands that learning an instrument, and music in general, is more just than just learning technical proficiency but all about learning a new language, which requires a very holistic approach to teaching. Ahmad does an excellent job of providing me with the tools to improve my technical ability, understand music theory, and read music, all of which has made me a much more well rounded musician. He also does a terrific job of structuring his teaching around your musical interests, influences, and ambitions. I would recommend him to beginner, intermediate, and advanced musicians alike."
