Music has a profound affect on our quality of life and perception. No matter the skill level, the joy of listening and performing music is something nearly every person finds valuable to their life. I feel it is a privilege to have the opportunity to share my understanding of music with others.

I have been teaching publicly and privately for over 10 years. I teach music using songs the student(s) listen to. Fundamentals are introduced using the music that you love. I studied Music Education at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) as well as classical guitar (IUP) and jazz guitar (IUP, Duquesne Faculty).

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.

What makes lessons with Jake fun is that he is very approachable and friendly. Jake has experience teaching kids in the classroom and also online- he is good at both! You can expect to have some fun while gaining a solid foundation in the basics and making progress towards your goals.

Jake was born near Seattle, WA, and was always a natural when it came to music. He taught himself how to drum at an early age, he started composing original music. Motivated by curiosity and passion, he also taught himself how to play guitar and ukulele in college, as well as the art of mixing and music production.

His interest in music took him to the quaint town of Bellingham, WA, where he combined the studies of music theory, recording, and creative writing, and he majored in Songwriting at Western Washington University.

Around this time, Jake began playing in bands and playing gigs locally. Local gigs led to regional tours, which in turn paved the way for national tours with the bands ...

It will be my pleasure to share with you the joy of learning to play the acoustic guitar, an instrument that has been my constant companion for the past 20 years!
I will coach you in learning chords, technique, different strumming patterns and finger picking. We can also working on playing and singing at the same time, learning to read tablature, basic song structure (if you are interested in writing your own songs) or learning to play some of your favorite popular songs - classes will be customised to meet your wants and goals.
Whether you are a complete beginner or are needing some guidance to reach that next level, I would love share my passion for music by helping you expand your abilities!

"Ahmad is an easy going teacher who kicks my butt at the same time. He's a stickler for the foundational elements, which is exactly what I need to take my guitar playing to the next level. He is truly interested in seeing me improve. I'm a songwriter and I need to up my game to be able to hang with co-writers who are more advanced musically, and I also have the goal to play out at writers rounds and open mics and I need to get a little more proficient for that. We're playing acoustic. We've done both Skype and in-person lessons. Highly recommended. Good location."

"I started my lessons with Nick just one month. I know I am inquisitive, intense, overly involved and very detail oriented with my interests in general and I treat guitar the same way. I enjoy and immerse myself into it. I think Nick has a very broad knowledge of guitar playing and comes across as a very conscientious instructor in the way he handles my overachieving demands. I would surely recommend him."

"Calling Ahmad was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I spent almost a year trying to "teach myself" how to play the guitar, mostly as a new hobby, with little progress and a lot of frustration. Ahmad has been my teacher for about 7 months, and it has completely renewed my interest in investing the time to learn to play. Ahmad is extremely patient, makes playing/practicing fun, and offers flexible scheduling (which is extremely helpful when balancing multiple commitments). I have nothing but great things to say about Ahmad. I would recommend him to anyone and will be continuing to take lessons here for a long time to come!"

"Kevin is an amazing guitar instructor. As a 20 year elementary teacher, I see great teacher qualities in Kevin. He is not just teaching guitar skills, he is teaching learning strategies as well. He was honest on the type of guitar needed for my daughter to play with more success and is always enthusiastic and full of constructive suggestions. My daughter's eyes sparkle during her 30 minutes with Kevin. I also love the emails he sends to explain her lessons and what she is to practice at home."

How to Simplify Your Live Guitar Rig for Performances

Playing the guitar is such a fantastic experience. It’s so relieving to be on stage or in your designated practice space and just wail on your instrument. However, one of the difficulties of being a guitar player is deciding what gear is needed for live performances. We often get trapped in thinking that we must have the biggest and loudest guitar rig for shows, accompanied by a pedalboard equipped with 30+ pedals. Don’t get me wrong, there is something extremely satisfying about plugging in …
