About Me

Hi and thank you for looking at my profile! My name is Felipe and I am a self-taught, multi-instrumentalist who loves helping others learn how to play music and have fun while doing it. I began playing music in high school when I taught myself how to play drums and guitar by playing along with CD's of my favorite bands. Since then, I have played in many garage bands and have pursued an education in music, having received a Bachelor's Degree in Music from the University of North Texas in 2011, and a Master's Degree in Music from Texas State University in 2014, with both degrees having an emphasis in music theory.

My teaching style is very laid-back, yet can be very intense for students who are ready to get to the next level. I understand that all students, no matter what their age may be, are different, and try my hardest to make my lessons fit the students individual style. I don't expect everyone to learn music my way, but try help to put music in terms that the student understands and feels comfortable with. I don't shout chords at the students and expect them to just know them like some other teachers do. I like to teach multiple versions of the same chords and work with the student to figure out which works best with them.

I have performed in operas, musicals and plays in San Antonio and I have sung at Carnegie Hall in New York. I studied voice with Herald Stark and guitar with David Underwood. I have led a professional singing group and a professional dance troupe. I have composed choral music which has been performed in San Antonio and entered into international competitions. I have spent years learning techniques to help students sing in tune and learn how to read music. I have experience teaching students of all ages from 3 year olds to adults. I teach students from Northeast San Antonio, Selma, Schertz, Live Oak, Universal City, Cibolo, Bracken, Garden Ridge, Converse, Marion, Seguin and New Braunfels.

How San Antonio Guitar Students Can Transform Into Musicians

By Jim B. - San Antonio Guitar Teacher

When a student decides to take guitar lessons in San Antonio, they want to see how they will do at playing the instrument. Typically, the student wants to learn enough to see how much potential they have to become a guitarist. They need to acquire the basics in a short period of time to see how they like playing the guitar.

As someone who is passionate about teaching, I realize that most of my students have a desire to get results quickly. For this reason, I focus on each student’s musical background and natural abilities, and then clearly explain the basics of playing the guitar.
