About Farrokh S.

I have been playing guitar, piano, bass, ukulele and drums for 11 years now (teaching for 7 years - Acoustic & Electric). As a child I started playing pop music, then I became obsessed with classic rock music (Guns & Roses, Iron Maiden, ACDC, etc). Soon after I started playing a lot of Modern Rock and Metal music. Then in my 20's I started to play blues and jazz as a means to learn advanced concepts in music and fell in love with the guitar all over again. At the age of 21 I went to Berklee College of Music where I studied composition and music production for four years.
I am confident that I have the skills and resources to teach anyone from a beginner to an advanced musician.

He's a good guy.
I'm not young, and I'm hard to teach music theory to, but he was patient, and is helping me figure a way into learning important stuff that I find kinda dry and not fun to practice. (I'm a good player, but music theory is very challenging to me.)

Farrokh is an awesome guitar teacher! He is very knowledgable on guitar and music and he is able to explain things in a way for a complete beginner to grasp, I learned a ton about guitar and music from him. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to learn about guitar or music theory!

My son has ADHD and is not easy to get interested in anything except video games. But Farrokh had him interested and engaged the whole time!!?

He was patient and amazing at the art of teaching. He knew how to teach guitar at grassroot level basics and it was awesome that a person with that level of skill was so good at teaching a beginner.
