As a composer and performer, I always encourage players to understand the fundamentals of music…music theory. There are many misconceptions about music theory: it’s too hard, it’s no fun, no one needs it - all wrong! The principals of music are simple, fascinating, and incredibly useful. Whether you took music classes in college or are just getting started with your first instrument, I can help you change the way you look at music. At first, the language of music seems strange and unfamiliar. That’s because it is! But when you take it one step at a time – one foot in front of the other – the meaning behind all the chords and scales becomes clear.

The first thing to learn about music theory is that your ear already knows it. Theory simply describes and gives definition to what your ear already hears. It’s like studying a language. By studying how nouns and verbs work we have a more powerful command of our language. The same is true for music.

Andrew is an excellent instructor. He is really knowledgeable in music theory. I took lessons for only a short time but was able to learn so much, because he used my knowledge of piano to help me understand guitar concepts and he focused on the techniques and songs that I was most interested in.

I chose Teri because when I looked at her profile, it screamed "TEACHER!" I've only had one lesson but I am pretty sure my instinct was on-point. Looking forward to the next lesson!

I will teach you theory so that you can better understand the music you play and hear. I tend to focus on finding ways to apply the theory we focus on so that you can be more creative in music that you create. Whatever you'd like to focus on, from the basics of chords all the way through complex harmonic substitutions or 12-tone set theory, I can help you learn and understand music in a way that will hopefully enrich your experience with music!

I can help you learn the beginning concepts of music theory. As a student musician myself, I completely understand the importance of having those basic skills down. Understanding theory is a key skill in being a great musician because it teaches adjustment and tonal foundations. For example, knowing how many sharps are in the key of D Major will save you a lot of time when you have to sight-read or analyze your next piece.

Lessons:
***KEYBOARD on deck for all lessons*** I find that visual tools help with understanding the theory a little bit better.

I offer 30, 45, and 60-minute sessions. It all depends on your needs.

For lessons at my home or in the community center, parents/guardians are welcome to sit in.

Adult beginners are also welcome!

His style of teaching enables students to learn and get to know a wide variety of guitar aspects very quickly. He breaks up lessons into short but consumable modules while at the same time giving something concrete to start playing and get going from the word go whether you are a beginner or not. I've been going to him for several months now and would highly recommend Ahmad for his guitar teaching skills!"

Ahmad makes you feel comfortable and really understands the way that people learn and how to teach in the most effective way. The guitar is a tough instrument to learn and you want to learn from someone knowledgeable and patient and that's exactly what Ahmad is."

There were so many concepts that I knew a little about, but Adam helped fill in the gaps of knowledge and familiarized me with the concepts so well, that I could teach them myself! He is patient, humorous, and a complete joy to take lessons from."
