About this pro

My passion for music goes way back. I started playing the guitar when I was 6 years old (that's 21 years ago!) and then learned how to play the ukulele by myself when I was 9. 

I love music and enjoy sharing this passion with my students. I have been giving ukulele lessons for the past 3 years to both kids and adults. I try to keep it fun and motivate each student through their progress. 

First of all, playing the ukelele is a lot of fun by itself, so having a couple of hours a week to do it is great! What I enjoy the most about this work is to see the progress of my students and learning new songs with them to adapt the lessons to their musical taste.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I begin by "testing" their musical knowledge to find the starting point. Then I show them 3-4 simple chords that are used in almost every song there is and teach them some strumming patterns. 

After that, I teach them some songs from my repertory and then keep increasing the difficulty with the music and songs of their choice. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been playing instruments since I was 6 years old. I started with the guitar, then the ukulele (when I was 9) and at 12 I started taking piano lessons. 

I went to the Music Conservatory in Madrid for 4 years (when I started college I had to quit), playing both the piano and the guitar. 

For the past 3 years, I have been giving one-to-one ukulele lessons to both children and adults. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I normally give 1-hour classes for 20$/hour. If it is for more than 1 student at a time the price increases by 10$ per student. 

If I have to travel more than 20 miles from my place a regular 1-hour class is 30$, but each additional student cost 10$. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I had taught a variety of ages. 

The youngest one was a 6-year-old girl that was surprisingly good at playing the instrument. I also taught her 2 twin brothers who were 8 years old at the time. 

I have also worked with young adults from the age of 20 to 36. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for someone that makes you feel comfortable. It is not all about the instrument. The teacher has to be able to know your needs and expectations as well as your motivations so that you can see progress.
