I am so happy to have this opportunity to review Rodrigo Rodríguez. I have learned so much with him over the several years that I have been studying with him! He has totally transformed my guitar playing and has helped me to achieve my specific goals which are: To learn to play rhythmically with my right hand, to learn the fretboard better so that I can play more advanced songs, and to learn the repertoire of Spanish language music. He is so knowledgeable and talented! I have learned styles and songs from him from many different countries - Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, Cuba, Colombia, and Mexico. In addition to all of that, he is a first rate human being who I feel fortunate to know! So, do yourself a favor and take lessons from him. He is a great teacher!

Rodrigo is a patient teacher who is a great musician. I have only had one lesson with him, but believe I will make good progress in learning the cajun accordion.

The Ukulele has seen a resurgence in recent years, and is a really fun and easier instrument to learn. Like the guitar, I teach beginners basic chords and rhythms to get them playing their favorite songs as soon as possible.

My method of teaching focuses on building up strengths and knowledge so that a student can become proficient at learning on their own. I do this by creating a custom curriculum for each individual I teach. This accomplishes two things, keeping you as a student entertained and enthusiastic. I have background in music theory, and have taught for several years to beginners, and intermediate students. This has allowed me to learn to adapt to each individuals learning style so that they progress quickly, and comfortably.

Austin is awesome! He really has amazed us. Our kids have nothing but progressed since taking lessons and they performed wonderfully at their recital. He is always present, provides feedback, and is just good with the kids. What can I say? We highly recommend him. He is now teaching our kids virtually which has been a seamless transition. Thank you Austin for all that you do!
Jill Williams
Austin makes such a big difference in my son's life. He enjoys learning to play the piano and he enjoys the conversations they have together. Austin is very patient and takes the time to make sure Jayke understands what and why he is learning a piece. Jayke has autism - not that this should make a difference - but it does. Kids with autism have poor focus, lack motivation, struggle alternating tasks, and have poor communication skills. I'm not sure if he would stick with playing if it wasn't for Austin. He never makes Jayke feel discouraged or inadequate when he doesn’t get a song right away. His motivation and kind words keep my son wanted to learn.
Daniel
I’m a singer songwriter in the International Songwriters Guild (Orlando). Austin has been helping me learn Acoustic guitar and harmonica. My purpose is to record demo’s of the songs I write and perform at conventions, like Dragon Con in the Filk track. I’m a very challenging student and Austin is a very challenging instructor.
He first determines his students skills and preferences and teaches to one’s strengths and interests, the best way to learn. Austin in incredibly knowledgeable and a great source, I often pick his brain with my questions.
I highly recommend Austin as an instructor in person or over the Internet. I have had lessons both ways!

"One day, I decided to learn ukulele by myself but I became quickly stuck. I found Carolyn on this website and then went to her place to take my first lesson. Carolyn is super sweet; very welcoming, smiling, fun to work with. She is very positive and gives great feedbacks all the time! I learnt a lot during our session!! At some point, we sat at her piano to talk about notes and keys: it was very interesting to switch to another instrument. In addition, her place has very harmonious vibes: when I left I felt so much better!!! I definitely recommend Carolyn for music lessons! And I look forward to our next ukulele lesson!"
