My teaching approach:
Hi I'm Alex Flores, owner of Flores Guitar Instruction. I'm a guitarist and a performer but most of all an educator. From my experiences in learning guitar, I've learned the value of providing quality education as a teacher devoted to their student's success. From my completely original and effective curriculum, to my custom-made backing tracks, original lead sheets and many more online resources to help you on your way; I make it my sole purpose to help YOU become the best guitarist you can be!My guitar lessons take place in:

In that interview, FGI will work to understand the student's musical goals and interests. The first lesson is entirely determined by this interview, each subsequent lesson being tailored and customized for the incoming student.A guitar lesson with me might entail the following:
A typical guitar lesson with FGI will center around repertoire. Believe it or not, every song you will ever learn or want to learn is rich with teaching concepts! FGI is all about breaking down songs into their component parts to help students perform with understanding. The entire FGI curriculum and its seven programs - chords, rhythm, theory, solo/improvisation, scales/riffs, notation and technique - is based on this very conceptThe qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following:
An ideal guitar student for FGI is one who understands that nothing worth doing comes without hard work.
