I had the good fortune of having Roberto as my Traditional Harmony and Counterpoint teacher when going for my Music Degree in Mexico City. I can tell you his class was one of a kind and he turned a couple of the most complicated subjects of music into something very enjoyable. He's a strict teacher, but he values hard work dearly and he was always available for a student seeking help.
Manuel Vargas Mena
I had the pleasure and honor of being one of his students in Mexico City while I was in music college. He's a very disciplined teacher (never missed a class) and he has complete dominion over the subjects he teaches. Roberto's not only an amazing guitarist but he has a unique way of teaching music theory and history that makes you quite familiar with the different approaches to music over the different ages. He also shows a legitimate interest over his students, he challenges then and even owns when he's pointed out mistakes by them. During my time as his student I also realized that he was quite respected by the other professors. Fair warning: he can be a little sarcastic but he means no offense whatsoever to his students and fellow musicians.
Quique Escamilla
Roberto is a an excellent music teacher with invaluable knowledge and years of teaching experience. I have had the opportunity to study with him at 2 separate different periods in my music career/life—years ago, at a music college first, and more recently I've had the opportunity to reconnect with him and continue furthering my music knowledge with his great help over online classes. He has been very helpful, very patient, and I can highly recommend him as a great music teacher to anyone, at any level.

What a brilliant instructor! Diego is well organized, welcoming, patient and encouraging. In the first class he transmitted a great deal of knowledge to me. He did so with acute attention to details and in highly methodological fashion. He truly is an expert! I am well on my way to learning how to play the guitar. And because Diego has a wealth of experience and expertise, I trust his pedagogy.
Jim Dyer
Diego focuses on what and how to practice to get through difficulties and keep improving. I am really enjoying the class!
Maria
I love guitar lessons with Diego!! He introduced me to various techniques that help develop the skill more effectively and are based on psychological research and years of experience.
At the end of every class, he sends me an email with notes and recordings of him showing how to play a piece, so I have access to all the tips and references from my classes.
Also, I love how he reminds me to rest my arm, play with minimal necessary tension, so that playing is comfortable!!
Finally, I find his calm, patient presence creates a good atmosphere for me to learn as I feel comfortable making a mistake while having guidance how to fix it.

Private Classical Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching Classical Guitar for about 3 years now and Basically what you would get from learning this style is the original way on how to play guitar, theory within music, build your ear, learn how to read music and build independence in both hands but at the same time teaching them how to play together. Ultimately you learn many things from focusing on one.

Chris is the most understanding, invested, and patient guitar teacher I have ever had. I have been playing for 11 years, and about 6 years into that I began learning classical guitar from Chris. He was able to teach me anything from beginner level until I was ready for advanced techniques. Very responsible and the best experience I’ve had with any guitar teacher.
Ragav
Chris is a CHEAT - he took our money and just vanished - made up many excuses via canceling classes and ultimately stopped responding to texts. He broke both my kid's confidence and till now they are very sad!

"Totally would recommend Jesse for guitar teaching. He is very patient and teaches in a fun way my child was able to grasp and learn from. He is very experienced and a great teacher to learn from. My son was 7 years old when Jesse taught him guitar, and he loves playing guitar now - all thanks to Jesse."

"Adam is a teacher par excellence. I am self taught from a well known book. I was doing well I thought until I got stuck. Adam gently showed me where I erred and made great suggestions for me to move on correctly. I never felt rushed or “ put down.” Adam was patient, open for questions, encouraging, comforting. I know I need much help to correct and advance in guitar from matters such as tuning, restringing, reading, and other things too many to write about. I look forward to my next lesson with enthusiasm."

"Jessie has taught my daughter classical and regular guitar for a couple of years. There are many, many thing I like about Jesse's teaching. One of the things that I like most is that he asks my daughter what she wants to learn and then teaches it to her. He mixes up the theory and it's application with what she wants to learn keeping interest and motivation at a high. Another thing that I like is the breadth of material he brings. His students end up well versed in all types of music and are able to play well known pieces in many different genres. Yet another thing that I like is his creditability. He walks the walk. His group plays regularly. Any doubts that your teenager may have about him can be quickly and easily put to rest just by going to hear him perform. Jesse is a good teacher and I highly recommend him."

"Matt is a great teacher. Patient, knowledgeable, and always adding little interesting bits to the lessons. He pointed out my mistakes and was guiding me to make my playing much better. He opened me to the various interesting topics in music theory and pointed out importance of posture and exercise – playing scales and various simple arrangements. He has a great repertoire of songs of different genres at different levels, for his students – even those like me, who like classical music. I would very strongly recommend him for anyone wanting to learn or improve guitar playing skills."
