Lisa was wonderful. Very patient, detailed explanations, and went above and beyond. I’ve felt intimidated by sewing and even the process of setting up my machine but she was able to illuminate that process. This lesson was worth every penny and I’m looking forward to the next one.

Guitar is one of the most enjoyable instruments to play. At least I think so! Join me as I teach you the fundamentals of guitar in a creative, student-customized way. Whether you're just starting out or have been playing for years, I'd love to help you get the next level. My specialty is teaching classical guitar. It's my firm belief that learning classical guitar will make you better at playing any and every other style of guitar. But that doesn't mean we will only focus on classical music. I'll tailor lessons to your interests as well. If you like blues, we'll learn tools to improvise up and down the neck. If you like pop, we'll learn chords and finger picking. And the list goes on and on. Most of all, my goal is to show you how fun playing guitar and making music can be. I've sure enjoyed it!!

About Andrew

I've been playing guitar for 15 years and have gained so much joy from it. I loved it so much, I got a degree in classical guitar performance. When I'm not playing or teaching, you can find me spending time with my wife, playing with my dog, or composing and recording music. I look forward to gettin

"Great

Tony has been my sons (age 8) instructor for months and we can not say enough positive things about him. My son is very shy and Tony was able to make him comfortable from his very first lesson. I have seen Tony play with his own band and he is an impressive showman. I can see where he can be able to teach and be comfortable with any level of player - from beginner to advanced. Thanks again Tony!"

"I started taking lessons with Ahmad over 5 years ago as a wee beginner. Looking back at where I started, I'm surprised at how much progress I have made and have learned more than I ever expected to.

It is obvious from the start that Ahmad is not only an phenomenal guitar player, but also, and more importantly, displays a strong passion and dedication for teaching. Each lesson is carefully designed and structured to build off of techniques previously learned and Ahmad has a knack for making even difficult concepts easy to digest. He imparts simple tips and tricks, mined from years of experience, that have helped me master techniques and avoid tedious memorization exercises which would have made the learning process agonizingly painful. Having one-on-one lessons also allows Ahmad to give me the personal attention needed to provide feedback, positive and negative, and nip bad habits in the bud before they become ingrained. Additionally, each lesson comes with handouts which are handy to practice with and use as a reference (I have 400+ pages of material so it's important to keep it all organized).

Ahmad has a diverse set of musical tastes and a secondary benefit of taking lessons with him is that he's exposed me to a plethora of great music that I would not otherwise have discovered on my own. Whether you're a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or think you can rival Joe Satriani, there's something for you to learn from Ahmad. Also, I've found that lessons are very motivating in terms of encouraging me to keep practice because, yes, I do get lazy sometimes. With Ahmad, if you put in the time and effort, you will be rewarded greatly with the freedom to be as creative as your heart desires and you will have more fun playing the guitar than a mouse running loose in a cheese factory.

Oh, and Ahmad's a super cool guy too."

"I have been taking lessons from Lorin for ove 3 years now and every week opens a new door. Lorin is a “musician” not just a guitar teacher. He can teach you what YOU want to learn! He’s patient, knowledgeable and an overall excellent teacher. He’s written his own songs, he can learn a new song in a matter of minutes, which I have challenged him with some of my fav “oldies, folk’ country” and he will have it down in a heart beat. Often we use my lesson time to just “jam” on the song I’m presently learning, which is an excellent way to pull it all together. He has also helped me with vocals and I’m amazed at the progress I’ve made, “never knew I could would that good”!"
