Hello! Thank you for your interest in taking guitar/piano/music lessons.
I am a professional teacher/studio musician/performer/producer with over 17 years of private teaching experience and a graduate of the University of Miami Studio Music and Jazz program in 2002 specializing in the guitar.
I am available to teach guitar(acoustic, electric, classical) for all levels, ages, and styles(pop to folk, rock to soul, world to classical) in English, Spanish and Japanese.
Other subjects taught include bass guitar, keyboard, harmonium, classical percussion, music theory, composition(all styles from pop to classical), ear training, and studio production/engineering/mixing.
Born in Cali, Colombia on April 1979, I began my musical endeavors studying the piano at the age of 6. Early on I had the opportunity to play percussion in the school symphony while at the same time developed an intense interest in the instrument that would become my true love, the guitar.
During 1996-98 I studied jazz guitar at the New World School of the Arts music program under the direction of J.B. Dyas and Dr. Roby George. Upon graduation, I was immediately accepted to the University of Miami jazz guitar program under the direction of Randall Dollahan. It was during this time that I also refined my skills as a classical guitarist and as a composer/arranger. In addition, I began passing my knowledge onto friends and eventually began working as a teacher.
My ability to play almost any genre of music is the fruit of past experience playing with an impressive variety of music groups, including jazz combos, symphony orchestras, Andean world music ensembles, and several rock and pop groups as well. As a studio guitarist I have recorded for various artists including Jaci Velasquez, Carlos Ponce, Alexandre Pires, and Noelia.

My musical journey started when I was 10 years of age. I fell in love with the guitar and started taking lessons from a local academy. My first guitar teacher taught me a variety of musical styles and provided me with a solid foundation that would help me with the rest of my career. I continued taking lessons all the way through high school and then went on to study musical education in college.
Throughout my life I have played with many different bands, covering; alternative, rock, reggae, and pop. Currently, I compose and record my own music, lead a band, give guitar and keyboard lessons, and also work as an audio engineer.
Learning how to play guitar at an early age has helped me relate to all kinds of students and their abilities. I was there; I know how exciting it is to start learning the guitar and can guide you through all the necessary steps in order for you to learn and succeed.

I'm a certified guitar instruction from the American Guitar Academy. I have playing, writing and producing for 20 years now so I have a depth of knowledge and experience that is hard to equal. I truly love teaching and sharing the joy of making music. I have toured professionally for 10 years all over the world but now I want to stay in town more to focus of writing, producing and teaching.
I am equally comfortable teaching beginners or highly advanced players in many different styles including Pop, Rock, Jazz, World, Folk and more. I can teach you a highly efficient system of learning so that you can continue to learn, grow and have fun with the guitar (and other instruments) for as long as you like.
There are few things as enjoyable and rewarding as being able to express yourself on a instrument. It would be my pleasure and honor to share this experience with you.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
