I have just completed my third lesson with Diego and I am more than pleased. He is a phenomenal guitarist and an excellent teacher. He is motivated and truly loves doing what he does. He covers everything from techniques, body mechanics and music theory. I highly recommend him for anyone wanting to learn the wonderful art of Flamenco Guitar.
