I am a professional jazz guitar player. I graduated from USFQ College of Music in Ecuador, and got my Master’s degree at the New England Conservatory of Music. Also, I’m currently studying music education. In the past couple years, I’ve recorded two albums as a collaborator, and had one tour throughout the East Coast, playing jazz standards and original music. Currently I am a guitar instructor at the Jacksonville School of the Arts, and Schroeder’s School of Music. During the lessons, we will work on things like technique, but also learning new songs and keeping it fun. Also, we can set weekly goals, so you know what you have to do during the week, and keep improving your skills continuously.

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!
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.
