About

 Hello everybody! My name is Antonio Socas, I´m a Guitar and Bass player.I am a professional musician, in studio and live. I have more than 15 years of  experience playing and  teaching music. I teach Harmony, Composition, Jazz,  and improvisation .  I love to help my students get as good as possible very fast, showing them how easy it could be if they know what and how to  practice.

I have played and recorded with many bands of different styles like: Jazz, Rock, Pop, Bossa, Reggae, Funk and Latin music among other styles.

I studied classical music  and Classic Guitar,then I went to L'aula (Berklee International Network, Barcelona, Spain) to study Modern music and Jazz.

I´m also a Sound Engineer and music producer.

I really enjoy helping musicians understand how music works!

I work with students of all levels. I like to see them and hear them play so I can understand what he/she needs and then I make a personalized curriculum based on her/his needs.

I like to show the nature of guitar and how music works. Many times I have to teach how to unlearn some bad habits and also I try to focus on the most important things you will need to be a pro; like a very good ear, excellent time feel, harmony knowledge, sight reading etc.

I have done some guides really easy to use that have worked for hundreds of students, I will provide them as needed and will also give you specific home work to help you get the best of you!
