That was until I was given a free lesson to try a new teacher, Marco O. This one, half-hour lesson, is the reason I am still performing nearly two decades later. For the new few years, I met weekly with Marco, who was patient and precise. He cares about the individual student. For me, he quickly established a baseline, and we progressed by playing music styles that interested me. He would encourage me to bring a tape or CD (remember those?!) to our lesson. Then, he would learn the tune by ear AND transcribe the notation into guitar tablature, the numerical way of writing music. This made learning infinitely more enjoyable and easier, too.
A few years after stopping lessons, I wanted to take up lead guitar and scales on a more serious note, pun intended. Without considering anyone else, I immediately returned to Maggio Music School to ask for Marco. We resumed, re-established a baseline, and began our next journey.
There is no other guitar teacher I feel more confident in recommending to you. Marco is classically trained in theory and a true master of the guitar. He can play any style and is one of the biggest influences I've had. I'm eternally grateful for what he has taught me and I am confident he will more than accommodate your musical needs."
