Waldemar is the best guitar teacher, ever!!! I've improved so much since I started taking lessons from him. He's kind and patient, clear when explaining/teaching, and super talented. I love that he's a professional musician and producer, so he definitely knows what he's doing. AND, he's bilingual!!! I've been taking one-on-one lessons in his studio, and some online lessons as well -which work really well, too-, in Spanish!

My experiences with Josh have been great. I have played guitar for many years, but my approach has always been lacking in relation to technique. Josh has helped me form a better mechanical understanding of my posture and movements. The adjustments he has helped me make have resulted in less stress on my fingers, wrist, and arms. He has always been thoroughly prepared for lessons. I would absolutely recommend Josh, especially for new musicians who want to learn their instrument in a fundamentally sound and detail oriented manner.
Paul W.
Been a student of Josh's for a few months now and feel very fortunate to have found him. His attention to detail, continuity between sessions, and obvious broad knowledge base are a few of the elements making this a very rewarding learning experience. I am learning to read music, understand music theory, and develop technique. I have very much looked forward to each lesson which Josh takes the time and effort to build upon with clear assignments and follow up. Josh is highly personable, professional and supportive. I highly recommend Josh.
Mark J.
Excellent, takes time to explain music so I can have a better understanding of the whole process.
I look forward to each class as I learn more.

I have a huge passion for teaching and playing guitar. I also teach you a wide variety of music such as rock, metal, blues, etc. This helps you not get stuck with one style of playing. I can teach all ages. I'm very patient and I'll always work at your level, so I won't go too fast for you. I'm dependable and always on time. After studying with me you will have a good understanding of music theory, a complete understanding of the instrument, how to write your own music, and how to play multiple different genres of music.

"My 12-year old daughter has been taking lessons for about 6 months now and can already play some songs better than I expected.

She really enjoys lessons with Ahmad, for the following reasons (in her words):

"He's a good teacher because he's really patient."

"I like the one-on-one lessons because it's helping me learn faster."

"He always emails the materials after class."

During the lessons I've watched, Ahmad is indeed patient and professional, yet friendly, during the lesson. He is able to, in an encouraging manner, discuss with my daughter the things she needs to practice, and gives positive feedback about the areas where she is showing improvement.

I would recommend Ahmad if you're interested in learning the guitar!"

"I have been taking lessons with Remi for about a year and nine months to this point. His teaching honestly just gets better and better. Every lesson is fun, and he really take a lot of pleasure in his students' progress. He thinks about where I am, week-to-week, and the week's lesson builds on that. After his many years of teaching, I'm sure that he could probably just put things on autopilot and have a few "canned" lesson plans, but he doesn't do that. He selects lessons for each student individually, constantly customizing to build on the foundations he's helped create. I have nothing but praise for this wonderful teacher, and the amazing way he brings out the musician in each of his students."
