Such a wonderful teacher! Patient, encouraging, knowledgeable, and knows how to break things down for me as a beginning guitar player. :). It is clear that Jose genuinely loves teaching, maybe as much as music. He finds the perfect balance of teaching through songs that I love, but also introducing me to songs/etudes that teach me more about music than I know to ask. :) I’m learning so much! I have also loved his personalized follow up videos which I can refer to anytime. Highly recommend Jose!

I have been with Jose for about a month now and I can say he is truly dedicated to making sure Im proving every week. He is patient, motivational, and caters to the students needs as he creates a very own private youtube playlist for anything you learn in class or need to work on. He is very knowledge about music/guitar. You truly get way more than you pay for.
