Welcome to my profile,
I am a highly experienced music educator with an educational background from the Conservatorio Nacional de Música de Santo Domingo, Universidad Nacional Pedro Henríquez Ureña (UNPHU), the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hamburg (Austauschprogramm), and several programs from Berklee College of Music.
I am a professional guitar player experienced in several different styles and genres ranging from latin (merengue, bachata, bossa, samba, and more), pop, to classical, jazz and more; also, I am a composer (very qualified for writing jazz tunes, jingles, soundtracks for ads, beats, film scoring and more), arranger, copyist (I work with both Finale and Sibelius). Also I have experience working with several DAWs, mainly Ableton and Logic. Tracking lots of guitars, making beats, working on top of film, movie trailers, TV ads and more.
P.S.: Languages besides from english: spanish (perfect), german (intermediate), and french (basic).
Before the first lesson I am always making sure of doing the right questions to my students to know what kind of music styles are they interested in, what drives them to become a better guitarist everyday, and so I can address those things they want to achieve with these lessons, and. This way I can decide which will be the proper path for each student to achieve their goals and start working in this custom path right away from that first moment we meet without any kind of detours. This method grants the delivery of the best results there can be to each and everyone of my single students..
According to what each individual alumni wants to achieve, I’ll focus on setting a very broad set of ways to target the adversities each of my students can stumble upon during the task of conquering and mastering the art of guitar playing; targeting: technique, language (lines in the style of jazz, rock, blues, latin music and more), fretboard knowledge, chord vocabulary, comping, repertoires, etudes, and more. A whole custom program that's goona make you able to enhance every aspect of the necessary skills to become a proficient and versatile guitarist.
After every lesson we do you will be getting the complementary material:
- A PDF Sheet Music / Chords
- Exercises & Supporting Materials (Videos, audio recordings, pics, and more)
- Video Tutorials
- And my assistance. I am always available to help my students throughout the week to help my students out with any doubt or question about any topic related to our lessons.
