About Eloy

I started to play when I was 12 years old inspired by some guitar players such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Gary Moore, Richie Blackmore and then I started taking classical and electric guitar lessons. I've been learning music from several composers like J. S. Bach, Villa Lobos, Mozart and electric guit

Eloy is great! He is very talented and his lessons include a combination of theory and practice. He has put in extra time and has gone out of his way to tailor his lessons for my interests.
Ross
Eloy is a very advanced player. He is super nice and SUPER patient. I understand everything he is doing right out of the box for me. I have been playing on and off for about 5 years. I love to play lead. He starts me out with scales. The back bone of lead. He knows exactly where to start. I have had a really positive time with him and actually booked many many more lessons with him. I HIGHLY recommend Eloy for lessons. Thank you Eloy!!
Miki
I'm a newbie with the guitar, but I've learnt other instruments before, and I can tell you that Eloy is a superb teacher.

He's very methodical, patient, and has a great eye to help you with your technique. One thing that has greatly impressed me is how he plans the exercises to build onto each other, both in technique and in theory.

He can for real make an impact in your guitar playing no matter your level.

Thanks for everything and we'll keep at it!

I feel that learning in general and learning a foreign language in particular is about repetition and I ask my students to repeat everything I teach over and over again until they know it by heart. I keep my lessons simple to avoid overwhelming the students and to allow time for them to repeat what they learned earlier. I teach the words that form part of the so called core vocabulary; words that are chosen according to frequency and range (in the sense that they “occur across a wide variety of texts”) It is often said that the first 2000 most frequent words cover approximately 90% of the vocabulary used by native-speakers in daily conversations. This means that for a student they represent the basic resource to be able to communicate.

Do you enjoy puzzles? If so, my class is the class for you!
Translating Latin is like solving a word puzzle. There are many advantages to studying Latin, but I think the most significant reason is to study Latin is to train your brain. Latin is like weightlifting for your brain.

I enjoy explaining Latin in a simple way, that will allow you to get to work quickly solving the word puzzles that are Latin sentences. If you have friends who wish to join you, it can be even more fun, as I often utilize games and rhymes to aid in memory work.

Dan has a great style of instruction, he is very friendly and easy going and this makes taking the lessons very comfortable. Dan has great patience as I was too busy to do much preparation for the lessons but Dan made it work and I still progressed with the Danish language. I will be back as soon as things slow down for me.

My kids have been taking guitar and drum lessons with Bruno for 2 years, and they are having a great time! It's awesome that he teaches two instruments, because I can have both kids take their lessons in the same place. They have tons of fun learning new songs, and the studio is nice too. Highly recommend him for others!
Lilia B.
I enrolled in online lessons with Bruno after seeing his posts on social media. I am glad that I can get such effective lessons with him online, because he is an excellent musician and instructor. He does a great job of demonstrating all the techniques that I need to know and teaching me a lot of different songs. Our lessons have been very productive thus far and I look forward to more!
Lindsey
Bruno is a great guitar teacher. My son stared lessons with him last year as a complete beginner, and now he can play a lot of his favorite songs on guitar. Bruno is knowledgeable, patient, and fun all at the same time! My son learns something new at every lesson and is excited to go home and practice! He is having tons of fun learning with Bruno and I recommend him to anyone.
