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 ...

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!

About Dan

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would bring my guitar, metronome, pen, etc.
The students should have their own guitar and amp if electric.
They should also have the appropriate books - mel bay note reading and a blank music staff and tab book.

*** Specialties ***
My method focuses on learning scales, chords & arpeggios and then showing the student how to apply them through knowledge of music theory. They will learn how to create music on their own as well as understand the music they listen to. I will also show my students how to play various popular songs and how to improvise. My areas of expertise are in rock, pop, blues, rockabilly, metal, country and jazz. I also teach note reading, fingerstyle and classical guitar.

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.

I've been playing for 30+ years but really just memorized tab. So I could play mechanically - get my fingers to the right place - but never understood how it fit together. After 3 lessons I am understanding chord structure and "why" the music sounds good. Mike also plays along with me...he'll play chords while he challenges me to muddle through leads (one of the things I want to learn) and vice versa...after playing on my own for so many years it's the first time I've actually ever created music with someone else - it's a great feeling. Thanks Mike - I look forward to learning more and would recommend you highly.

Michael's enthusiasm is clear and he has been a joy to work with. He always goes above and beyond to ensure that my daughter is learning songs that she loves, and even stayed late a few times to help her adjust her guitar.
He's always happy to focus on the things that are important to her, and is very patient and encouraging. I'm so glad we found someone who is as passionate about guitar as my daughter is!
