For each and everyone of my students I craft a Custom Music Lessons Program. That's why before the first lesson ask my students what kind of music styles are they interested in, what drives them to become a better musician every day, thus being able to address those things they want to achieve with these lessons. This way, I can decide which will be the proper path for each student to achieve their goals and start working on it right away without any detours. This method grants the delivery of the best results there can be to every one of my students.
For my Guitar Students' lessons I focus on setting an extensive 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 (also for any of the other fretted instruments I teach like Mandolin, Ukulele, Guitalele, and Tres Cubano); targeting: technique, language (music lines, riff, phrases in the style of jazz, rock, blues, latin music and more), fretboard knowledge, chord vocabulary, comping and rhythm guitar, repertoire, etudes, and more. A whole custom program that will allow you to learn and enhance every aspect of the necessary skills to become a proficient and versatile guitarist.
In the Classical Guitar lessons program, students will master a diverse number of techniques to develop the required dexterity in both hands and to learn the amazing classical guitar repertoire from the greatest like Villa Lobos, Tarrega, Bach, Roland Dyens, Leo Brouwer, and many others.
With my Music Theory / Harmony students I mainly focus on the Berklee College of Music harmony syllabus. I teach them how to use every tool they learn, how to analyze and understand the music they like as well as the Great American Songbook repertoire, how to compose, how to enhancing their ear skills and more.
After every lesson, 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 with any doubt or questions they might have.
