Jazaak Allah alf khair for your wonderful website!  I am an American Muslimah trying to learn tajweed, insha'Allah.  Unfortunately, the classes here are limited to English speaking students.  And I am amazed at the fact that most Arabs don't pronounce the Arabic letters properly.  Subhan Allah, may Allah increase our knowledge.  Ameen.  Al-hamdu lillah, I comprehend the readings and the tidbits, and I believe, that to be successful, I need a good teacher.  Do you happen to know of any in the Nashville, Tennessee, USA area?  There is a class taught by our local Imam, but I am not currently enrolled and the new session will not begin for new comers until at a later, unannounced date.  I would like to begin as soon as possible with this endeavor of mine, insha' Allah.  I appreciate your assistance, encouragement, and time.
