Guitar To Go
My service stands out in the way I give the class and the patience with the student.
The knowledge is the same everywhere, but the way to implement it is different, and that ́s where I stand out.
I make sure my students are confident in their learning journey, giving my 110% in every class, by being for them outside of the class and through class material that will be helpful for them.
I enjoy seeing my students grow and improve their musical knowledge.
There is nothing more satisfying to me than seeing my students doing what they love and actually being good at it.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
The first thing I do is ask each student to define their goals and expectations for themselves. Do you want to become a stronger guitar player? Do you just want to know the basics? Do you want to shred like Eddie Van Halen? I exist in all these spaces and can offer advice and things that have helped me grow, but the first thing is we have to know where we're going before we set out.
After our first lesson I can write up a detailed plan telling you exactly how long to practice different techniques, scales, songs, etc. Whatever they may be each day and I guarantee you'll see improvement.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I studied for two years in a private music academy in Guatemala, as well as ten years as a full-time gigging musician (playing guitar, piano, bass, harmonica and ukelele).
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
$50 an hour, $30 half hour
How did you get started teaching?
My mom was a piano prodigee. She would give piano concerts every weekend, and as soon as I was born, she taught me the fundamentals about music. After a certain age, I started studying piano, winning contests, and then I expanded myself to playing the guitar at my church.
As I progressed, I started giving classes as well.
I´ve been giving classes for +5 years now.
What types of students have you worked with?
I've worked with children as young as ten all the way to grown men and women in their eighties, anyone who wants to learn is welcome.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Look for a teacher that relates to what you aspire to be.
If you are looking to play Indie music, make sure your teacher knows how to get you into the music you want to play, so that you can grow theorically and through experience.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
Make a list of your favorite musicians and songs you'd like to work on. So the teacher knows your music inspiration and where you are trying to go.
