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.

it makes a huge difference if you could have a great instructor like Ahmad. You can practice on your own for months without any progress and one day you decide to work with Ahmad, all of a sudden, you are on another level.

Ahmad is an excellent teacher. I start learning playing the guitar from him a couple of months ago. He is really professional on teaching guitar. Highly recommended as he customizes the course according to your learning speed
and has different class packages.

I have tried different guitar lesson in Bay Area before I choose to learn guitar with Ahmad, and Ahmad is definitely the best.

Ahmad is an amazing guitar instructor. My daughter is 13 and was interested in playing the guitar. We purchased a guitar, talked to friends about instructors and searched Yelp. We initially took video lessons, but that did not cut it. Actually, it was a waste of time - my daughter needed one on one instruction. I spoke to a few guitar instructors, but chose Ahmad based on his background in guitar instruction and playing. Ahmad provided a good overview in the first lesson and then spent time with my daughter , teaching him the basic chords. In the course of 7 lessons, my daughter can play 21 chords and is also starting to play "Stairway to Heaven". Pretty amazing work in 7 lessons. Ahmad has provided my daughter with a curriculum and also provided us with tips on iPhone apps to use that allow my daughter to stay in rhythm and to tune his guitar. We will continue to have Ahmad teach my daughter guitar. Ahmad has definitely exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend Ahmad as your next guitar instructor.

I've been taking lessons from Ahmad for a couple years and can say he is a very engaging and knowledgeable instructor. Ahmad is experienced in many different styles of music and can help you to play anything you want. He will also show you the techniques necessary to play any song and the theory to go along with it. It's a bit overwhelming, as learning guitar isn't an easy process, but Ahmad is more than capable of guiding you wherever you want to go.

Ahmad was recommended to me by a co-worker but prior to discovering him I researched a few other instructors. Ahmad seems to be quite generous with his time and fees compared to other instructors I researched. He is also very flexible when it comes to teaching venue and will teach at your house if desired.

Based on my experience over the past two years I can highly recommend Ahmad Lee if you are looking for guitar instruction.
