About Diego

CURRENT LESSONS (2014) - General Guitar Lessons for Beginners - Finger-style Guitar for Beginners - Classical Guitar (beginner, intermediate, advanced) - Flamenco Guitar (intermediate and advanced) - Rumba Guitar (beginner, intermediate, and advanced) - Latin Guitar (beginner, intermediate, and advanced) WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT FROM PRIVATE LESSONS? The very first things we'll learn to do in our private lesson will be to RELAX, BE PATIENT, and HAVE FUN. Yes, mastering (or even just getting decent at) the guitar takes time and dedicated work, but it should always be enjoyable, relaxing, and should NEVER...BE...RUSHED. Ironically, by relaxing and taking it slow, you'll excel rather quickly and, more importantly, CORRECTLY. Lessons are based on time-tested methods in ...

Diego is a great teacher! I have been taking lessons from him for a while now and I have improved considerably. He is very clear with his teaching using the information learned through his information psychology. He explains why we must do something a certain way and this leads to a better understanding of flamenco and the guitar. He teaches not just guitar, but also how to practice. Diego is incredibly friendly and makes learning something so difficult manageable and fun!

Diego is a fantastic teacher and guitarist. He is generous and patient, encouraging and effective. Diego has the ability to simplify difficult technique and break it down in simple terms. His studies in Spain make him a rare and sought after teacher in Chicago. In short, Diego have given me the keys to succeed in this beautiful and challenging art form. I wholeheartedly recommend him!

Ms. Isabelle is patient and able to reach my wiggly, Star Wars-obsessed kid where he is. She is a great communicator and keeps things interesting for him, while also pushing him to work to best of his ability. She is clear about her goals for his musicianship. She expects him to not just learn the songs, but to play beautifully. She models professionalism and respect during her lessons.

Ms. Isabelle R. is an exceptional musician and wonderful violin teacher. She brings high quality music instruction to her classes and students will be well skilled in music after taking the first class. She is timely, well prepared and has teaching qualities that we expect from a professional teacher. Whether group or private lessons, Ms. Isabelle R. has an amazing way of matching her teaching style to the needs of the student. I highly recommend her as an instructor you don't want to pass on.

Christopher is a Great Teacher.

I am so glad I found him to be my Grandsons violin teacher. Kevin is 8 yrs. old and never played an instrument before. Christopher really knows how to relate to him on his own level. He makes learning easy and fun. Kevin looks forward to his weekly lesson and has learned so much already.

About Rob

Hello! So glad you've taken a moment to check out my page. I am a graduate of VanderCook College of Music in Chicago, Illinois, having received a Bachelor of Music Education degree. I have been teaching full-time for two years, and while I enjoy what I do in the school setting, nothing quite satisfies me as much as helping others one-on-one; it's just more personal and meaningful to me! I am a drummer and percussionist by trade, but I also have solid basic facility on piano and guitar. As far as my experiences go, I have performed in the following types of ensembles: -Symphonic band -Wind ensemble -Philharmonic orchestra -Percussion ensemble -Jazz, ska, rock, and brass bands -WGI (Winter Guard International) -DCI (Drum Corps International) I have also completed two ...
