My first lesson with Ahmad was great. I am a true beginner at the guitar and I was a little nervous... Ahmad was very patient with me and understanding as well. He has an easy going personality which made the lesson more fun and much less stressful for me(being a beginner). He was organized and covered all of the basics to get me started, then after the lesson he promptly sent me all of the materials covered in the lesson to my email for review. Ahmad’s work experience and life experience shine through in his mannerisms as a teacher, I am super excited to continue and have already scheduled my second lesson! :)Jun 18, 2019Verified
Ahmad is very good. He is very professional and knowledgeable. He even gives clues/notes that most guitar teachers don’t give. I will try to continue the guitar lesson with him in future.Jun 16, 2019Verified
I've been taking lessons for 3 years now with Ahmad. My classical guitar ambitions are frequently met with technical and musical obstacles, and Ahmad has always helped me work through them and keep me moving forward. I have also been working on music theory and basic guitar chords - Ahmad has helped guide me to a better understanding and technical proficiency. Lessons are conducted in a friendly and supportive way and his positive attitude plays a vital role in motivating me to keep working at guitar. I think no matter what your guitar goals are, Ahmad can help you move improve and keep taking it to the next level.Nov 5, 2019
Great teacher...I would highly recommend Ahmad as a Guitar Instructor. Each week I am getting better at playing the guitar. I just gave a Gift Certificate to my friend to get a guitar lesson from Ahmad.Sep 20, 2019
I started taking guitar lessons for the first time 10 months ago and am thankful I found such a great teacher in Ahmad. His positive attitude and love of music helps me stay engaged and lessons are productive and fun. One of the great things about Ahmad is he listens to you and adjusts lesson content based on the feedback you provide. His ability to listen allows Ahmad to deliver a personalized lesson plan that incorporates your goals and gets you excited about what you are working on. Ahmad also has taught me techniques to prevent and address minor aches that come up while learning to play. He takes this seriously and shows you how to prevent and resolve any issues that come up. Overall, taking lessons from Ahmad has been a very positive experience. I look forward to continuing working with him to get better.Oct 16, 2019
