Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I've been playing bass since I was 11. I have a degree in jazz performance so improvisation plays a key role in my lessons, but am fully capable of teaching any style. If you take lessons with me, we will certainly cover the basics of two finger style grooves, but can easily dive into advanced techniques like two hand tapping, artificial harmonics, chordal playing, three finger techniques, and slapping and popping.

Around this time I began to work at my neighborhood's local lesson shop Let's Play Music! off of W Broad Street in Falls C

"Investing in an instructor was the best decision I have made with regard to learning to play. Prior to this, I relied on friends and You Tube videos which doesn't even touch the surface.

I recently started studying with Ahmad and have learned so much in the short time we have worked together. He is genuinely down to earth, patient and a natural at teaching. He understands how to teach. The continuity of his instruction superceded my expectations. After each lesson, he emails a "lesson recap" detailing what we went over during class along with helpful materials to review and practice for the next session. I feel honored to work with an instructor of his caliber. If you're serious about learning, I highly recommend Ahmad. You will learn so much from him and be challenged along the way. His passion for guitar and music in general is awe-inspiring!"
