Curtis has been a great instructor for me. Curtis listens ,encourages and teaches in away that I am making progress each week on skills like strumming ,timing, and rhythm . The bottom line is that I truly look forward to my lesson every week with Curtis and I think you will too.

Curtis is a fantastic teacher! He is patient, enthusiastic, and encouraging. He teaches the type of songs you want to learn and not some song from a guitar guidebook. My first lesson was two hours and it quickly went by. I learned a lot, had a lot of fun and am looking forward to my next lesson. If you are in search of a guitar instructor, I would highly recommend him.

Do you want to unlock the mysteries of the guitar fretboard? Learn to play songs, improvise for the first time or explore new ideas for improvisation, study rhythmic grooves and learn to keep and feel the beat. Guitar can be a vehicle for your souls' deepest expression and also a form of practicing meditation. I began teaching before I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. After Berklee, I performed in several bands, toured Europe and worked as a sound engineer for both live and studio settings including several festivals in Costa Rica.. I can help guide you with creating your own sound recordings if desired. Whether you are just getting started or an experienced guitarist looking for some unique perspective I'd love to help you find a new groove! My favorite styles to play are rock, reggae, R&B and the blues but I also play funk, jazz and classical guitar. Drop me a line today!

About Jennifer

I began playing guitar at 12 years old. Before that I had dappled with the piano and always sang. There was something about the guitar that just drew me in! I always loved seeing the hands of guitar players and the sounds that would accompany those shapes. Guitar is a very pattern based instrum

My promise to students--if they follow my advice, they will be successful! Cello lessons with me are informative, productive, and geared toward empowering the student's knowledge of the cello. I also encourage students when faced with a problem to slow down, think about what they are doing physically and change their approach if needed.

I am a professional cellist who has been teaching and freelancing for more than twenty years. I graduated from Michigan State University with a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Cello Performance. I currently teach privately in Chicago and the suburbs over fifteen students with ages ranging from 5

I strongly believe in music as part of each individual’s curriculum, particularly in the 21st century, when society is based on quickly achievable outcomes and most young generations have lost the sense of commitment and patience that music can teach. Teaching occupies a large part of my daily activities. I have been teaching private students (from 3 to 60 years old) since I was a teenager. Teaching middle school kids in Italy has prepared me to the class environment of group piano classes in the US, where I have been awarded a Teaching Assistantship in both schools I have attended in this country. My interest in pedagogy has become predominant thanks to Franco Scala in primis, making me eager to learn new teaching methods, particularly focusing for years on the pedagogical approach of Vincenzo Scaramuzza, who taught the very young Martha Argerich. Thanks to Franco Scala, I was able to closely understand the peculiarities of this method, which I now apply to my own students. Later, ...

Hi!

I studied with Mr. Luca and everything he taught me was life changing. Not only as a pianist but as a human being. He is an amazing performer but also a wonderful teacher. He seeks excellence yet understands that each student is at a different level and moves as it's own pace. I loved being his student and I highly recommend him. Unfortunately, I couldn't continue studying with him because he moved to Miami to pursue his Doctoral degree. I wish him success in his wonderful career as a teacher and performer.
Marilyn N.
My daughter had the honor to have Mr. Luca for her very first piano teacher. She was only 5 yrs old when she began. Mr. Luca is not only an excellent pianist, but he is an amazing teacher & he is wonderful with young children. I was so impressed with what she learned from him. We miss him so much, but we are so happy for his career advancements, we only regret he had to move from Texas.
Jake W.
Luca has been incredibly instrumental in my current and future success as a musician. As a beginner student his teaching was a major factor in my acceptance to the Piano Department at Texas State University. Without his guidance, and commitment to seeing me succeed, I would certainly not have been able to accomplish the things I have, or be in the position that I am today. I am truly grateful and blessed to have met Luca and I wish him all the future successes he deserves.

"As a dynamic exchange, Sofia imparted a masterclass for my students at the Escuela Comunal de Música de Orosi in Cartago, Costa Rica.
It was a very musically enriching experience for each of my kids, who are litle by little growing as violinists.
Sofia provided a great variety of recommendations through her knowledge as interpreter and teacher as well as cautivated everyone in the room with her passion and energy for music.
Sofia is definitely an excellent guide to learn how to play violin and the musical skills it entails."
