    I took lessons from Francesco weekly for about 6 months. I found that Francesco was very good at adapting his teaching to the individual person. I already had a decent musical background and wanted to pick up a new instrument. He did a really good job setting a lesson pace to match my situation. He was consistently asking me what I wanted out of guitar lessons and adapted his teaching accordingly. I tend to ask a lot of questions, and he explained things carefully and methodically. Honestly, I feel like he gave me a great foundation, and if I didn't re-locate out West, I'd still be taking lessons with him.

    Francesco has been a great teacher. I am glad I found him during Covid times. I was wondering how the lessons would go given we are all remote. But it’s going well for last few months. My son is extremely happy with the guitar lessons. He is reasonable as well from a price perspective. I would strongly recommend him for any child or adult lessons.

    I’ve been a student of Francesco’s for about a year now. I started as a beginner and Francesco has helped me learn new technique, repertoire, and overall guitar skills. With the help of Francesco I have performed as a concerto soloist at my school accompanied by an orchestra and have been preparing for college auditions. He cares a lot about his students and hosts concerts where we can showcase our skills and studio classes where we can learn and interact with other students. Francesco has always helped push me and motivate me with my playing and is an amazing teacher. I highly recommend taking lessons from him at any age or level.
