About this pro

My name is Eric Gracia, and I am an award-winning concert guitarist and teacher. I DO NOT ONLY TEACH CLASSICAL GUITAR, BUT I TEACH ALL STYLES OF MUSIC. I WILL ALSO TEACH YOU ANY OTHER INSTRUMENT YOU OWN FOR FREE, INCLUDED IN MY LESSONS. I UNDERSTAND THAT LEARNING A MUSIC INSTRUMENT REQUIRES A SET OF GIVEN TECHNIQUES AND THE WILLINGNESS TO LEARN THEM.

I teach in Houston Texas and all the surrounding areas and have played on National Public Radio(NPR), as well as for presidents and mayors of many cities. I have been assistant director of the annual Classical Minds Guitar Festival and Competition held at the University of Houston, as well the assistant director of the Greater Houston Guitar Guild. I have studied with over 80 masters of guitar from around the world, most of which have doctoral degrees. My first instructor was the second person in the world to get a doctoral degree in guitar education and performance. I consider my lessons as masterclasses, in which I cover everything, from technique to music theory to repertoire, posture, stage presence, guitar repairs, and all musical styles. I have taught over 500 students in Houston since 2004. My students have gone on to win international competitions and talent shows and have been accepted in highly accredited universities. I am a guitar teacher for the student who wants to get to the highest level of the craft. I also offer a monthly meeting for all my students free of charge to perform the pieces they are working on and be critiqued by myself and my peers. It is a great chance to meet people working on perfection just like you. I teach all ages starting at 3 years old onward. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. References are available upon request.

The gratification of seeing a student who has never played the instrument before, being able to achieve a goal within less than an hour.

    Eric is an amazing teacher. I have been taking lessons with him for over a year. His depth of knowledge in all genes of guitar music is absolutely amazing. He is always encouraging me, even though my skill level is low. I couldn’t recommend him enough to anyone interested in learning the guitar. He is the best.

  • J Wells

    Mr Gracia is kind, upbeat and great at working with our daughter, age 9. He works with her on a variety of styles and skills using classical and electric guitars. He is responsive to our interests and feedback. Perhaps most importantly, he works to foster a strong appreciation of, and technical foundation with, the guitar. I would strongly recommend Eric Gracia.
