Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

All music lessons at WCGA combine solid instruction in music fundamentals with the student’s personal interests and goals. Guitar students will learn chords, scales, terminology, and technique along with note reading, chord progressions, and theory. Teacher duets are common in our lessons to develop listening and timing skills. Our guitar teachers make sure every student understands the fretboard in order to execute challenging melodies and riffs along with chords that are suitable for popular, rock, jazz and other styles of music. Teachers craft each lesson to incorporate the fundamentals of guitar playing with the personal interests of each student.

Nick made first experience super fun for my daughter. She is looking forward for the next session.

My two boys ages 8 and 9 started taking piano lessons with Nick about a year ago and they love it! He is very professional, always on time, and keeps them entertained the whole time! Although they are progressing at different rates, Nick is always patient and encouraging. I highly recommend Nick and his teaching abilities!
Stacey
My two daughters have been taking guitar lessons with Nick for 2-1/2 years, both on acoustic guitar and electric guitar. He has even taught my younger daughter how to play the ukulele. Nick is an awesome guitarist teacher. My girls have learned so much from him - how to read and write music, bar chords, strumming patterns, music theory and all different genres of music (like jazz, classical and even reggae). Nick can listen to any song my daughters want to learn, then immediately put the notes down on paper and teach it to them. Under his tuition, they’ve performed solo gigs, in their school talent shows, and for and with their friends. My older daughter also plays electric guitar in a teenage rock band. Thanks so much, Nick!!

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Experienced guitar instructor of over 10 years, offering highly-personalized lessons built around the musical preferences, needs and goals of my students. I teach students of all ages in a warm, welcoming, LGBTQIA+ friendly environment.

For beginner students the focus will be primarily on getting you able to play songs from artists you love quickly and enjoyably, with a focus on developing good rhythm, technique, guitar care and a solid foundation of chords that can be used in innumerable songs. Theory will be given in small, easily-digestible pieces, and always within the context of actual musical examples. If you're interested in learning to sing while playing, I'll also help you find ways to incorporate it early on so that it becomes more natural as you progress.

For students with some experience the direction of our lessons will be largely determined by your personal needs and goals, but subjects we might cover include songwriting, finger-picking, expanding chord vocabulary, ...

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I have been teaching electric and acoustic guitar for 20 years and I bring a very pragmatic style designed to help students learn usable tools and get up to speed playing good sounding music. I started playing music at 5 years old on piano and currently play guitar, bass, drums, and keys. I began teaching while studying for my bachelors in Jazz and started building the system I currently use to help students develop good habits and add building blocks over successive lessons to grow efficiently towards musical goals and see real progress. I teach all musical styles and ages and have a passion for helping people achieve their musical ambitions.

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I graduated from Musicians Institute in Hollywood (originally called GIT), a renowned music school especially for the guitar. I have had taken guitar lessons and also taught students of different ages for nearly 5 years before I attended MI.

I received an honors degree of Guitar Performance and Audio Engineering and have been on the Dean's List every quarter.

I will combine my teaching experience and what I have learned and summarized from my learning, in order to give you comprehensive, in-depth, straightforward, and easily applicable lessons from beginner to advanced.

When I was teaching back then, I sometimes focused on one thing at a time and didn't realized how important to combine all things together it is until I went to MI. I will cover all the following sections throughout my lessons, so that you will become more of a musician, instead of a, for lack of a better word, guitarist:

Music Theory
Performance
Improvisation

"I've always wanted to learn how to play the guitar, and finally decided to pursue lessons a few months ago. After not having much luck with other teachers, I was lucky to find Ahmad and I am really getting the kind of instruction I've been looking for. Ahmad's lessons are extremely well-prepared and are thoughtful of my goals and learning style. I'm moving at a pace that is comfortable for me, yet challenges me to make improvements with each lesson. As an instructor, Ahmad is super patient and seems to genuinely care that I am both having fun and also meeting my goals as a student. Also, Ahmad is just a really fun person! My friend and I went to check out one of his British Band Shaughnessy's shows, and it was just crazy fun! I'd give him 10 stars if I could! :D"

"Ahmad is very passionate about teaching guitar. I've been playing guitar for last 2 year and with Ahmad, I've learnt much more in couple of months than I learnt in 2 years putting me on the Fast track. He has a very structured teaching approach, He breaks down complex techniques in small modules, which enabled me to learn quickly and everything is reviewed in the following class. Ahmad tailored the guitar lessons according to my skills and interests.
He is a great teacher and I highly recommend him for guitar lesson."

I was hesitant about taking lessons online but it worked out just fine.
Eric is extremely patient and knows how to play/teach about any song. I'm convinced he could teach any level player. As a beginner, I appreciate this.
I would say sign up, try it out. You'll be mad that you didn't!"

"David is a former student of mine at the COnservatory of Music at Purchase College. I picked the first category since every one of them fits David. At college, David majored in studio composition, a commercial writing major. So he brings a thorough understanding of musical structure. He knows how what you are playing works, and he uses it to help you achieve a greater understanding of music. I thoroughly recommend this dedicated teacher."
