Having trouble staying consistent with your practices? Do you know your potential but haven't been able to reach it? I can guide you to achievement, and this is how.

I believe a successful and prosperous person has 3 hobbies.
One to keep them healthy.
One to make them money.
And one to keep them creative.

My approach to these 3 activities is the same. HAVE FUN.
If you enjoy something, the consistent practicing will become secondhand. I will teach you your favorite songs, improvisational techniques, and music theory all in a way that will make you forget to check the time. What are we waiting for? Let's jam!

About Andrew

I started taking lessons when I was 9, focusing solely on blues and classic rock. As I grew up, I branched out into heavy metal, jazz, and classical. At the end of our lesson, my teacher would always write something with me and let me solo over it. I think this was super important for keeping it fu

I ranked #1 in the Slash Guitar Center competition. I was in the "list of top 5 guitar players ever" according to The Examiner, also picked as one of the best guitarists of 2013 and 2014 consecutively in the Rockwell UnScene magazine, and ranked 3rd in the Steve Vai Sam Ash Best in Shred competition.

I never thought I would spend money on guitar lessons given the number of free tutorials you can find online. Even as frugal as I am (extremely), after my trial lesson I knew lessons with Ahmad would be worth it. Lessons with him are literally the only fun purchase I make room for in our budget.
If I hadn't signed up, I'd probably still be playing the same few songs, watching random videos and not actually improving. Instead, each week we choose songs I want to learn that also introduce valuable concepts and skills. After a lesson, you leave feeling motivated, encouraged, and excited to practice a new song! If you want to actually progress beyond beginner, take lessons with him!!! Can't recommend him enough!!!

I started lessons with Ahmad last year as a birthday present from my wife, and I can I look forward to my lessons as much now as I did then! Ahmad has provided the exact style of instruction I need and has continued to help me grow as a guitar player.

Ahmad is able to connect with his students to understand their goals and objectives with lessons. I appreciate how he is able to tailor his teaching style and method to each individual and adjust as needed. His knowledge of music is superb and his musical interests are wide. Ahmad can flex between jazz to classical guitar to the newest pop single as easily as changing radio stations.

As a classically trained musician he can not only play the music, but also knows the music theory. I look forward to my lessons every week, and I can't recommend Ahmad highly enough!

Ahmad is a fantastic instructor. He begins work by teaching proper technique with the type of music the student is interested in and goes from. He can work with interests from punk rock to classical, electric to acoustic, no theory to complex music theory. A very talented musician and an excellent, encouraging, patient instructor. My son was a music novice with an intense desire to learn and practice (2-4 hours a day). In just 18 months he advanced his music theory knowledge and skills so far that he was able to easily improvise jazz solos. You can't go wrong working with Ahmad!

"Great Teacher

I played a little guitar throughout my life but was lacking an understanding of how the instrument works. I found myself strumming a few cords here and there but never with focus or improvement. After only three lessons with Paul, I'm now jamming to rock and the blues!Paul was quickly able to access my level of playing and I'm now understanding how the fretboard works and most importantly having lots of fun during lessons and practice. He teaches with passion and doesn't simply open a book but rather instills his lifelong experience and philosophy into lessons. Many can teach the mechanics of guitar but with Paul, you'll also understand the soul."

"I wanted to learn guitar, but I knew absolutely nothing about it. After weeks of failed self-teaching I decided to get a tutor. Best move I ever made and better yet, I stumbled upon Todd. Not only is he extremely talented, but he knows his music theory. Every week he would blow my mind with something new and I actually looked forward to the next week's lesson. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Would highly recommend him to anybody, young or old."

Eric has been teaching my my kid since he was 7 years old.
Eric is very patient and know how to get the kids motivated,

He know the weak points and strong points. My son Jesse loves Eric and if i kids likes his teacher the battle is half over!

Eric teaches my son rock... but my son also take classical guitar and music reading and get stuck sometimes with the homework but when Eric comes over he clears everything up for him,.
Nuff said! if you wan to learn guitar Eric is your guy!

I have been working with Josh for about four months now and the experience has been awesome. He’s a real talent and helps me make the necessary connections to understand music and the techniques to enjoy the learning process. Without Josh the frustration of learning a new instrument would have won out months ago and I would have quit. I am truly enjoying learning to play, and while I have a long way to go I am a long way from where I started in a short amount of time!"
