I am a teacher with several years of experience, and I think that every student can develop their own voice on the instrument. I’m always trying to find new ways to play and teach, and also make music learning fun.

Carlos definitely earned a 5 star rating! Bought lessons for a friend as a gift after I watched a couple of his YouTube videos. Before and after bookong, he was communicative and flexible on scheduling. My friend just took her first lesson and could not contain her excitement! Said she learned more in 45 minutes than she had in for plus years. She plans to continue learning from him. Thanks Carlos!
Charles W.
Coming from piano, the guitar has always seemed daunting to me. Prior to my lessons with Carlos, I had tried to teach myself songs/chords without much luck. Fortunately for me, Carlos turned out to be an extremely patient, friendly and competent teacher - I immediately knew I’d be progressing quickly with him! His qualifications speak for themselves, but I can’t recommend Carlos enough.

"Al is the best teacher

My son started learning the guitar with NO experience at the age of 9. He is now playing the songs he always wanted to learn, is always excited to go to his weekly lesson, and above all has the upmost respect for AL as do I as Anthony's mom. I couldn't think of anyone I would rather my son learn from. Al's extensive knowledge of musical instruments is nothing short of remarkable! I would recommend AL to anyone looking for a teacher in the musical arts."

"Very funny, super friendly, & great teacher

Eric is an awesome teacher with a ton of knowledge and lots of patients. He's super flexible when it comes to scheduling, and is always well prepared for the day's lesson. His ability to explain and break down complex material into layman's terms has been crucial to my understanding of music theory. We cover mostly rock, blues, & metal (in my favor), and I can honestly say his lessons has amplified my progression in speed, technicality, & overall confidence in playing. He'll always exceed the alloted time to ensure you leave with full understanding of the day's lesson, but never ask for anything extra for it. Besides being an amazing guitar player and an incredible composer, Eric is a genuine guy who really enjoys seeing his students progress. I highly recommend!"

"One of the problems with musicians these days is a lack of formal training. Cris has spent the last 20+ years perfecting his abilities to teach music. In my opinion, Part of what makes Cris stand out from other instructors is his knowledge and open minded view of different styles of music. A teacher with a diverse musical background is ideal for a student who wants to create a good basis or reach the next level in their abilities. Cris is able to help you learn guitar the right way and set a path that will advance your abilities quicker than most other teachers."
