 I was born in Alicante (Spain) in 1973, and I started playing guitar at the age of 13. My first instrument was a nylon string guitar, and soon after I got an electric guitar.

I was interested in Rock and Pop music, and later I started listening and playing Blues, Heavy, Folk, Jazz, etc...

When I was 15 years old, I started studying Classical Guitar at Alicante's Conservatoire, along with other subjects such as: Music Theory, Solfège, Harmony, Acoustics, Transposition, Music History, Music Aesthetics, Pedagogy, Chamber Music, Ensemble and Choir. I was also a member of the Conservatoire's Choir for four years as a tenor.

I finished my studies as a qualified Guitar Teacher and Instrumentalist; my degree is comparable to a British Bachelor (Honors) degree standard.

During that period at the Conservatoire, I also played guitar in several local Rock bands and I got involved in different projects as a musician.

I received my first Electric Guitar lessons from Paco García, and later I studied several years of Electric Guitar and Modern Harmony with Thierry Laforge.

I attended several Master Classes with prestigious Spanish Guitarrists: Salvador Domínguez, Porty, Jose de Castro "Jopi", Francisco Simón y Chema Vilchez.

I've been teaching guitar privately for 20 years, and I've also taught other subjects as Modern Harmony,  Music Production, Songwriting, Reading Music, Music Theory, Electric Bass and Ukulele.

I've also taught at the Villena Culture Centre, "Áula de Música y Técnicas de Arte" and "Da Cappo Schola" in Alicante.

I moved to Madrid in 2000, where I carried on studying Modern Electric Guitar and Harmony at the Musicians Institute, with Jose Manuel Lorenzo, and at the "Escuela de Música Creativa" (Creative Music School), with Pablo Fernández-Arrieta.

I also studied two years with Felix Sántos at "Academia Jazz Ateneo".

In 2002 I moved to London, where I got a "Qualified Teacher Status" after recognizing my degree.

I worked in London as a private guitar teacher full time, and I did several collaborations as a musician.

From those years, I would highlight my involvement in the soundtrack for the movie "Body Armour", as a composer and guitarist. And also my collaboration as a songwriter in James Keo's first album, produced by Martin Hoj, writing the music for the song "Of Poetry".

In 2007, I moved to Dublin, where I also taught guitar privately for six months.

After that, I moved back to Alicante (Spain), where I taught full time, and worked in several projects, which you can listen to in the Audio section of my website.

I decided to move back to London in July 2014, and I taught privately and work as a musician for 5 years.

At the moment I am based in my hometown, Alicante, in Spain and I am available to be your private tutor online wherever you are!. ;-)

I  believe my best virtue as a guitar tutor is the ability to be flexible and find a system that works with each student.

I tend to teach each person differently, based on the student's level, music preferences and availability.

I like to provide very clear transcriptions and extra material to help and motivate my students with their practice. I also like to stay in touch with my students in between lessons in order to monitor your practice and maximize your results.
