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.

The gratification of seeing a student who has never played the instrument before, being able to achieve a goal within less than an hour.
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.
Comes to home. Very knowledgeable. Good price.
Simply stated, Eric is awesome. He plays guitar like an angel and teaches with passion and patience. His lessons are specifically tailored to each student's needs and interests. For instance, one of his lesson for my 10 year old son may encompass technique, music theory and history, songs, proper posture, etc. Therefore, each is unique and most valuable. Eric is amiable, open to communication, and punctual.
Learning guitar from Eric has been a wonderful experience for me. I had no previous experience playing guitar, but Eric’s patience and teaching ability have enabled me to exceed my expectations. As I have become more accomplished he has been able to continue to challenge me and keep me interested and improving. He’s made learning guitar fun and I look forward to our sessions. I highly recommend him to students of all ages and abilities.
