Last year, I had the opportunity to study with Christian at CSU Northridge. Christian is one of the finest musicians I have come across in the years that I have been playing music. Not only does he have impressive skills with the guitar, he also has knowledge in the history of the guitar and music theory. When he was studying at CSUN, I was able to have some lessons with Christian on a baroque piece that was giving me trouble. First, I'd like to mention how patient he was with me when I was frustrated and lost in the music. Also, I was surprised at how much he knew about the music as he explained what was going on in the piece and why. Oh... did I mention that I had some AWESOME results after ONE lesson??? Do yourself the favor and check this guy out!

"I have been studying with Ahmad for just about 2 months. But that's enough for me to say he is an awesome guitar teacher. I think his teaching experience and method is a huge advantage for people who need professional guidance.

I was self-teaching for about a year before I came to Ahmad. It worked out just fine. I learned something. But I started to get confused at a point where I don't know how to move forward. I like a very specific group of guitarist (mostly Japanese fingerstyle players). And I wanted to learn how to master songs from those guitarist. And there is no such website or book that would teach me how to do that. Most of the guitar books or websites either give out general informations or put all information together as a mess.

Finally I decided to find a teacher. I found the lesson with Ahmad pretty effective. He is an experienced teacher who knows what you need to learn in order to achieve your goal. He has plenty of handouts that really helps me practice. The most important thing I learned from him is the big picture of guitar learning. For example, I learned the connection between scales and chords, why/how to improvise with these, how to go from there to other relevant things, etc.

When I look back over a year, I realize I have wasted some much time and effort trying to teach myself and wish it could have similar outcome as having a good teacher. Studying with Ahmad saves me so much time and effort (because it's actually easier!)"

"I've been taking lessons with Eric for about 6 months once a week for 1h online, we have been mostly focusing on lead guitar playing. Before that I couldn't really play solos, now I can play solos of about 19 songs to some extent, some better than others. I got to a level when I can learn new solos on my own of most songs that I like, which was way too hard just half a year ago. Eric is a great teacher, very knowledgeable about all things related to a guitar."

"Francisco is a patient and thorough drum teacher. I took lessons with him for approximately a year and learned so much that I still apply today. I would still be taking lessons with him but moved away from Southern California. He tailors his lessons to your personal goals and gives you actionable steps for the week ahead but also exposes you to larger concepts to show you what's possible. I regularly left lessons with him with my mind blown feeling very excited for the new possibilities in drumming that were being opened to me. After taking lessons with Francisco I feel like I have a toolbox of skills and knowledge that I will use my whole drumming life. He is extremely passionate about his craft and takes your personal goals seriously. I'd recommend him to any drummer of any style."

"Both of my daughters, one of which has Asperger's, really enjoyed taking singing lessons with Kimberly over the past one and one-half years, and I would highly recommend her. They each received individualized lessons plus were provided immediate feedback and encouragement. I never heard a "do I have to go" when it came time for their lessons which says allot, especially in the summer when I often hear this about other things."

"Jil Christensen is a superhuman who comes down to Earth on occasion to help us mere mortals become better musicians. Having pushed Ableton to its limits, she is able to troubleshoot almost any issue a budding producer/composer will come up with and has a seemingly endless bag of tricks to help the student explore different possibilities for a composition. At the same time, she is able to break down the most basic concepts to get the beginner started (I didn't know what an oscillator was at my first lesson, nor had I ever used Ableton or any other DAW). In addition to being an expert in Ableton, Jil has extensive knowledge of synthesizers and other equipment both for the studio and live music production. Jil also has an encyclopedic knowledge of modern compositional techniques and years of experience implementing them. She is sure to take your music production and composition skills to the next several levels. Highly recommended!"
