Happy Students

Everyone learns a little differently, and I work extremely hard to make sure students get the support they need both in lessons but also in between.

Check out some testimonials
from past and current

I’ve had a few lessons with Zaid and I’m astounded by how differently I now approach the fretboard. Zaid breaks down complex ideas into easy to digest chunks of information, and teaches them to you in a way that you can actually apply to your playing. Zaid is friendly, knowledgeable and patient, and I would highly recommend his tuition. If you have hit a plateau in your playing (as I had) you will be amazed at how quickly taking lessons with a good teacher will change the way that you approach your instrument.

Skype Guitar Student from Zaid's Guitar Lessons in Birmingham

Zaid is such a kind and patient tutor!! After the lessons with Zaid, my 5 years old son have developed his interest on playing guitar (which is guitalele for his age). Being parents without any music knowledge, he managed to teach him to fully understand the knowledge and skill during the lessons!
Rather than watching TV, my son now likes to spend more times on his little guitar at home.

After trying to find guitar lessons in Birmingham for several months I finally stumbled across Zaid.

Within a few short lessons he had already helped me master several simple chords and gave me the ability to learn songs by finding tabs online. Wherever I get stuck I use Zaid’s tuition to help me overcome hurdles; I really can’t recommend this Birmingham guitar tutor highly enough for any skill level guitarist looking to improve their abilities!
