A Berklee College of Music graduate teaching guitar, bass, piano, ukulele, music theory, music composition and production. 11 years of teaching experience in schools, at home, and at studios. I base my classes depending on the student needs and weaknesses. Usually start with some explanation/theory about a topic, and then I show how to apply that theory into real practice. I can teach any ages and levels as long as students are committed to learning and doing their best.
I also have IMDB credits from working in the music/film industry when I lived in Los Angeles, CA.
I enjoy being able to make my students happy and confident by making them realize that anything is posibble with effort and dedication.

I first get to know the student a little bit by finding out his/her music experience. Then, I ask him/her to perform something for me (or with me), and after that I evaluate strenghths and weaknesses. Then, I start showing him/her tips on how to improve on what is needed. I don't believe there is a reason to go over topics that the student is confortable with.
I got 2 bachelors in music. One from Ecuador in Classical Guitar Performance, and another dual degree from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA in Film Scoring and Guitar Performance.
Hour rate for lessons is $50/hour, + any travel expenses ($2 extra per mile from my location).
While I was a student at music school I started tutoring for other students and fell in love with sharing my knolwdge and experience with others.
I have had students as young as 4 to 50 years old. From early beginners to advanced working musicians.
I advice you to look for someone who is not only good at his/her craft, but also at communicating that knowledge.
Think about what you want to get out of the lessons. Is it just getting better at your instrument, or getting more round music education, or get a better understanding of other areas of music you may not know?
