Tom is an excellent teacher. He works great with my daughter. He is very talented and understands music. I highly recommend Tom.
Chris M.
Tom is a super nice guy with a great positive attitude and teaching style to match. He has lots of experience both playing and instructing. Two thumbs up!
Anya
Tom was absolutely fantastic. He seemed to be genuinely interested in my progress and just as excited as I was about me picking up the piano again - over 20 years since I’d last had lessons - which was an excellent motivator. I may have gone home and practices for a few hours. I look forward to continuing my lessons with him.

I only had Marc for a couple months (unfortunately had to move), but he is a phenomenal teacher and I recommend to anyone. He's very easy to communicate with and strikes a great balance between the technical learning you need with having fun.

First lesson. Marc was great
Chris
I only got to take lessons from Marc for a couple of months in the summer of 2016 (I had to move away for work), but he is hands down the best music teacher I've ever encountered. It's a year and a half later and I'm still benefitting from his tutelage. From beginner to advanced, you've found the right guy for the job.

Looking to express yourself with the guitar or just to play along with one of your favorite songs? I am a new teacher but an old player of 10 years. I'm 21 years old, and a student in sound engineering. Ill help you work through basic cord progressions, strumming patters, hammer ons, pull offs, scales, bare cords, and more. I like to make sure anyone I teach is enjoying and engaged in the material. If you have favorite songs you want to work towards playing that's even better, even if you have no idea what kind of music you want to play I can tailor your lessons to your wants.

About Jack

I am a guitarist and a student in sound engineering. I've played for near 10 years because of the love I have for music and the desire to share it.

Hello, hope you're having a terrific day!

To begin describing my lessons I have to say that I am an energetic and positive human being overall! I truly believe that we are able to learn anything faster if we have fun in the process. The online sessions that I'm offering will focus on specific exercises that will help students develop their technique and their musicality at the same time. My classroom is located in my recording studio, which is a professionally treated space. A great advantage of learning with my setup is that we can also focus on recording techniques, achieving a professional sound, editing, mixing and mastering, which are essential skills that a modern musician should acquire.

P.S. I'm a professional musician with more than 15 years of experience.

About Camilo

Hello, I hope you're doing great! I am a professional guitar player and music producer. I graduated from Fundación Universitaria Bellas Artes with a Bachelors of Music, specifically electric guitar. My students can expect an enthusiastic and positive teacher, that will give them plenty of fun exe
