- Ages 5+
- Teaching since:
I am a professional guitarist and music composer for movies. I have been teaching since 13 years now and just like the way you want to learn guitars, I was in the same spot many years ago. Having found a great teacher, all his guidance helped me eventually become a professional guitarist and work for the movies and TV jingles. I have composed music and played guitars in 8 movies and 100 jingles that you hear on your TV. Two of my movies have been selected at one of the world's biggest and most reputed film festivals - CANNES FILM FESTIVAL. Living your dream is the best thing you can do for yourself!
It took me many years to design a curriculum which is focused on not only teaching guitars, but also how you can record your own guitars and make them sound great. Isn't that exciting! Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or expert, I will strive to teach you that no one else does. I have mentored more than 200 students and many of them went on to become part of bands and performing artists.
See you at the lessons!

I tried learning guitars many times using online lessons on youtube. But, when I started taking guitar lessons from Atif, I realised that my technique was wrong as there was no one to correct me earlier. He made me change my technique which was quite difficult to unlearn and re-learn, but I am a much improved guitarist today thanks to Atif. His way of teaching is simple yet effective.+ Read More
