With beginner students Mahoor prefers to teach the basics first, giving each student a good grounding before pursuing a particular style. This involves learning the location of the notes on the guitar, learning to read music, playing and/or singing with the correct rythym.
As guitar tutor and performer Mahoor can play a variety of styles including Classical, Flamenco, Meditteranean, North African and South American. He composes and arranges music, for himself and other professional musicians. Mahoor is a keen vocalist in Pop, Spanish and South American styles. He is often been invited to perform as a soloist at weddings, parties, business seminars, and frequently makes guest appearances with other musicians including duos, quartets or bands at festivals and other functions.
Mahoor performed at the Sydney Opera House in 2012. His personal motto is "If you love music you must play or sing! If you cannot play or sing...let Mahoor teach you"
