Private Classical Guitar Teacher

I studied classical guitar at the University of Central Florida, performing solo and ensemble repertoire. I can teach proper technique with both hands, music notation, sight reading, harmonic theory, and how to realize "orchestral" compositions. From Sor to Villa-Lobos and everything in between!

About Gio

The technique I teach is applicable to classical, acoustic and electric guitar. It is based on finding the most relaxed position for the entire body, and ultimately the hands and fingers. It's the most fun way to play!

Private Classical Guitar Teacher

I have taught all levels, using the methods of Giuliani, Carcassi and Sor. Also I encourage my students to develop a basic repertoire for performance, a knowledge of theory and fundamentals.

About Juan

New York city composer and guitarist Juan is a native of Ecuador raised in Colombia. He immigrated to Miami at age 20 to escape the political climate of the late 90’s, and resides in Manhattan since 2008. Juan’s music blends elements from his unique life experiences, having been raised as an onl

Juan is wonderful and very knowledgeable in music. He is very patient and makes you feel comfortable. I leave a lesson feeling like I am accomplished and relaxed. It nice to see progress in such a little time. I go home with enthusiasm to learn more and want practice to do so.
Chrystine R.
With a patient and intuitive approach, Juan tailors each lesson to fit not only the student’s skill level, but also desire for depth of understanding. When I first began taking lessons, I was only able to plunk a few chords and play along with a few basic songs. However, over the course of a year and a half with Juan, I gained a foundational knowledge of the classical guitar, as well as the confidence to site read and play a range of other styles of guitar music. He seamlessly integrated music theory concepts into song studies, helping me learn major/minor scales and chord shapes, and then apply this knowledge to better understand song structures and composition. It has been such a great experience learning from Juan, especially because he is both an exemplary teacher and guitar player!
Dionne T.
Juan is awesome. He makes learning guitar easy and never complicates it .. and makes it fun. He's a great teacher.

Why learn the guitar? The guitar is a challenging but highly rewarding instrument. There are certain thoughts and emotions that I am unable to voice with words alone, playing the guitar helps me express such things.

I have 20 years of experience playing the guitar, and close to 15 years teaching. I have a degree in music composition and theory from the University of Texas, and I currently teach guitar, bass, drums, piano, and music production to over 120 students at a local non-profit.

I am confident that I can help you achieve your music related goals and help you become the musician yo want to be.

About Carlos

Hi! As you may have noticed, my name is Carlos. I am the kind of person that aims to be pleasant yet candid, humorous and light hearted yet dilligent and thorough. I am a composer, living in the constant struggle of reigning in creativity in order to give it form and make beautiful and meaningful

I have two goals for my classical students
1. To play more beautifully
2. To have fun! That's what music is all about!
This course will teach beginners basic sitting position/technique, skills such as arpeggios/scales/chords, and basic sheet music knowledge.
As you progress we will be talking about different eras of classical music from the renaissance to modern styles.
My goal as your teacher is to have you playing from day 1! Let's learn to make music together!

"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!"

"Could not ask for more..Fantastic teacher!

As someone who knew nothing about playing/reading music of any sort, I find myself recognizing and playing a few chords and notes just after about 10 classes! All thanks to John. I agree with the other reviewer that he truly has the patience of a saint. He is very laid back and helps me learn at my own pace while enjoying myself throughout the process irrespective of how much practice I put in. Whole heartedly recommend John for learning the guitar. Thanks very much John. You are the best!"

Learning Classical Guitar: Can I Use Tabs or Should I Read Music?

Whether you're brand new to guitar, or just new to classical guitar, you might be wondering, "what's the deal with tabs and sheet music?" Let guitar teacher Raymond L. clear up the fog and put you on the right path to classical guitar success... To get started, let's be sure to clearly distinguish standard musical notation from what we call nowadays "tab" notation. What is Tab? The name tab, or guitar tab, is derived from tablature, a form of musical notation indicating fingering an …
