I'm a private music instructor with over 15 years experience, with a high rate of success. I teach a variety of guitar and piano styles, ranging from rock, classical, pop, blues, and jazz. Since the beginning of quarantine, I have successfully transitioned my clientele to online instruction, and can accommodate any platform (FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, etc). I can also provide in-person socially distanced lessons with mask, if so desired.
Apart from teaching, I excel in live and studio performance, and can help you put your rig together to find your desired tone -- including effects, amps, electronics, etc.
I also offer a custom course for students that would like to be able to sing and play their instrument, but are having trouble doing it simultaneously. I can address all pitch and timing issues.
I cater to all levels of experience, and can accommodate all learning & playing styles -- "by ear", reading sheet music, improvisation, etc.
It is my passion and full-time career to be able to help my students achieve their musical goals, whether it's learning their favorite songs/artists, writing and workshopping original material, or performing live or in-studio.
Javier can simplify difficult lessons in music theory and rhythms to make it easier to process and retain. He gave fun yet challenging “homework” and is extremely encouraging and patient throughout the process.
Javier is an impressively knowledgeable Instructor. He has aided me with my playing a number of instruments including bass, guitar, and piano. I have worked with other instructors before and javier has been very patient with me and my playing as we’ve worked together. Through his teaching I’ve learned a great deal and use what i learn as a gigging musician. I look forward to my lessons because he has so much to teach! On top of that, he’s a great guy, and i cant recommend him highly enough.
He is extremely knowledgeable about theory and is also fun to play with at the same time. He helps you to understand the reasoning behind why scales and chords are structured as they are, and to have a good time while understanding it! He is an expert at his craft, a great person to learn from, and a great friend. Love you, Javier!
Javier is so patient and knowledgeable, he tailored my lessons to my skill level and helped me improve in the areas I wanted to strengthen
