I'm Ahmad a very enthusiastic musician. I started out teaching myself guitar at the age of 12. I moved to the U.S. in 2001 and studied music for 15 years receiving my B.M. and M.M in music and audio production at San Francisco State University. I then moved to Los Angeles then studied and trained with John Mayer, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, George Lynch and many others.

I've been taking lessons for 3 years now with Ahmad. My 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.

Private Flamenco Guitar Teacher

I have studied Flamenco for over 20 years. During that time, I've had the opportunity to perform with many of the top artists in the Bay Area, as well as study with masters from Spain.

I have studied all of the parts of the art form to varying degrees: toque, cante, baile, palmas, cajon, but my areas of specialization would be toque (guitar) and cante (singing).

Hi there, and thanks for viewing my TakeLessons profile! I am excited to be a part of the team in Berkeley, CA. I started teaching lessons while in music school for Classical Guitar in 1996. From 1998 onwards, I played with a variety of musicians from Africa and Latin America, as well the as gre

I've been taking lessons with David for more than 2 years, he's amazing... he's very knowledgeable, patient, knows how to explain difficult concepts and can adapt to a broad range of topics, covering different areas that I'm interested on, including music theory, songwriting, guitar and bass, and music production.

David is both a professional musician and an experienced instructor, and you can tell the difference that makes in every class.

We started with at-home classes, but switched to online during the pandemic and that's working pretty good for me to.

I'd recommend David to anyone looking to learn a new instrument, get better at it or expand their music knowledge in general.
George McKale
Simply put, David is a great teacher. His lessons incorporated the perfect blend of theory and patience while opening up new horizons on the fret board. His style of teaching is very flexible so that one can hone in on what excites them. For me, that was jazz and David made a huge difference in my creativity.
Selina
David did a wonderful job, teaching me bass via Zoom with a lot of focus on what I wanted to do. Even though my interests ranged from technical to classical to theoretical to funk, he always had something he could show me and proved to have great knowledge of the instrument as well as of music theory and history. I would recommend him to anyone.

I only had Marc for a couple months (unfortunately had to move), but he is a phenomenal teacher and I recommend to anyone. He's very easy to communicate with and strikes a great balance between the technical learning you need with having fun.

I only got to take lessons from Marc for a couple of months in the summer of 2016 (I had to move away for work), but he is hands down the best music teacher I've ever encountered. It's a year and a half later and I'm still benefitting from his tutelage. From beginner to advanced, you've found the right guy for the job.

Most times we miss the ultimate goal of learning, which is to master how to do it yourself. Hi, I am Victor and i have been teaching the guitar for over 20 years even before i graduated from Berklee college of music. I teach all popular styles of guitar playing and i also teach you how to master the habit of figuring things out by yourself because i believe that is the ultimate goal of learning.

About Victor

Private Flamenco Guitar Teacher

I specialize in flamenco guitar, one of the richest styles of guitar playing. The techniques and fundamentals of flamenco are valuable resources for any guitarist, regardless of genre or style. While everything is taught through the filter of flamenco, students will gain a wealth of knowledge applicable to the guitar in general.

One can expect to start by developing a full technical routine aimed at developing stamina, strength, precision, and speed. All fundamental techniques will be introduced, including arpeggios, rasgueados, pulgar, alzapúa, picado, trémolo, ligado, and golpe. Rhythm plays a critical role in flamenco and will be emphasized throughout. Harmony studies will be introduced where appropriate. Repertoire will be given according to each student's capabilities and tastes, including resources for accompanying dance and singing.

My own teachers have included master guitarists Pedro Sierra, Pedro Barragán, and Paco Cortés. I'm also influenced by the music of Paco de ...

Absolutely excellent flamenco guitar teacher. Very knowledgeable, impressive player, and comes well prepared with teaching material to each lesson.
Zachary A.
I've been studying guitar for about 15 years, primarily jazz before I met Gustavo. I've never had an instructor that even comes close. He makes a difficult and seemingly inaccessible style of guitar accessible and fun! He's incredibly well educated, not only on the music itself but also on the history and culture of Flamenco; you're getting much more than just a guitar lesson. On top of that, he's also just a wonderful person.
Jeff
I have been gearing up for some extensive travel in Spain combined with some immersive flamenco guitar studies. Prior to studying with him, I had played various forms of guitar for several years but only had minimal exposure to true Flamenco styles. Gustavo has been extremely helpful in getting me ready for the experience with techniques, fundamentals, in-depth palos knowledge, rhythm and timing, interactions with Dancers and Singers, etc.. He is extremely knowledgeable and talented in all areas of Flamenco and he is very good at explaining it all to a non-native (extranjero) like myself! His depth of musical theory combined with in-depth experience studying in Spain make him a uniquely qualified Flamenco Guitar Instructor. This was my first experience with online instruction and within the first lesson, I felt like I had known him for months. I highly recommend studying with Gustavo no matter how much experience you have when you start this path!!

"Extraordinary talent, patient, detail-oriented, and great understanding of both flamenco and classic guitar theory and execution. I have known Edward for seven years now, and his guitar technique is exceptional.

I also called Edward when I was choreographing a play at MiraCosta College and needed a guitarist to create the music for the play and perform it live. He is extremely creative, a problem-solver, and team-player. I couldn't ask for a better person to do the job."

"I have been studying Spanish Guitar with Ed for 3 or 4 years and he is one of the best instructors I have ever worked with. He is a gifted player and performer and his work ethic and professionalism as an instructor are unmatched.

I am probably one of Ed's more challenging students due to my hectic schedule which interferes with my practice time but we have covered a lot of ground studying basic techniques and styles such as Flamenco, Rumba, Bulerias, Sevillanas, and Tango. Ed is always prepared and is uncannily able to pick up our lessons exactly where we left off the week before. He is able to diagnose problems with technique and work with me to correct them and suggest practice methods to improve technique and the musicality of the performance. Fortunately I have many technical issues so Ed will be gainfully employed for some time on my account!

Ed performs regularly and has a large repertoire in popular music as well as flamenco guitar. I have seen him perform with a flamenco dance group and he was brilliant. I asked him to perform at a small event I helped organize and his performance was enjoyed by all. I highly recommend Ed as a flamenco guitar instructor or as a performer."

"The lessons were really well structured and I felt I was on my way to achieve my goals from the first one.

Ben broke everything down into manageable chunks and built upon each lesson at the level that was right for me. He has a great teaching style and always makes you feel comfortable to ask as many questions as you need to.

I feel I have learnt so much, not only for my flamenco playing, but knowledge and skills that I can use across the board with guitar. With Ben's help I was also able to learn how to play one of my favourite songs!"

I have been playing with my guitar for 15 years. I have tried a few teachers and they were ok. But I never felt as connected to wanting to learn and improve as I do with Juan. His approach feels perfect, not aggressive nor placid. Never do you feel out of place even when time doesn't allow one to practice. I didn't just find a guitar teacher but I also found a friend and music mentor."
