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 teach each student differently, have for many years. Beginning, intermediate or advanced. Some teachers start everyone out with the same boring "Twinkle twinkles Little Star" type book, even adults. I teach accordingly to their abilities. You get better at teach, by teaching for years, period! I have been playing since 1977, and teaching since 1995. I hope to "Hear you Here".

"I have been taking lessons with Ahmad since June - I was referred by a mutual acquaintance. I bought myself a guitar for my birthday a year ago and realized I needed some outside motivation to play it. While I'm relatively new to guitar and this is my first time taking guitar lessons, I have been drumming for 13 years with private instruction and university courses. I would highly recommend Ahmad. He is inspiring, professional, informative, and patient; a shining example of what a great teacher should be.

Over the past five months, I've already seen significant improvement in both my guitar performance as well as my understanding of the guitar and music in general. Ahmad is very good at balancing the scale between creativity and technique, while never losing sight of what your goals are as a student. As with any learning process, I would suggest you understand your own goals and level of commitment before jumping in to lessons. As I've seen, Ahmad will probably motivate you to practice more than you originally thought, which I really appreciate. It's with practice and strong understanding that I've gotten to a point where I am proud of my abilities on the guitar. Work with Ahmad and I hope you find the same!"

"Learn from a professional guitarist!

There's an advantage learning from someone who is actually paid to perform music. Get the perspective and tricks of the trade to sound good quickly. He plays the range from rock to standard classical fare like Tarrega and Bach.

He teaches using tab and regular notation which really gets you up to speed quickly on any piece. My previous guitar teachers didn't use tab so learning anything is a slog. I've already learned Lagrima, Bach's Air, Bach's Bourree, Romanza, Recuerdos de la Alhambra and Tears in Heaven in a relatively short time.

Jesse observes your fingerings very well and makes sure you use the most efficient methods.

Flexibility of scheduling was extremely important to me since I cannot be on a regular weekly schedule. Take Lessons and Jesse's flexible schedule makes that very easy."
