Overview

My name is Francisco and I am from Portugal! I teach any musical style and my lessons are custom made for each student!

Now, I give music lessons in Liège (Belgium) and Maastricht (Netherlands) to very different ages, levels and musical styles.
Although most of my time was spent around classical music, I like also to improvise and I played also the bass guitar in a jazz ensemble.

I am also passionate in learning languages, so you can speak with me in any of the following languages (by decreasing order of skill): Portuguese, English, Spanish, French, Dutch German, Italian.

Francisco is a great music teacher. He is very talented, clever, patient with his students. Always explains as many time as it needs. Always gives interesting and interactive home work and exercises to work the ear and brain. Also explains things in easy, understandable and interesting matter so that association takes place and stays in the brain. Also helps students and answer questions even in no lesson times. He is also funny and good listeners. He has tactful and good manner towards his students! I am very happy and satisfy with all his work, help and teaching work.

Francisco is a brilliant classical guitar player and a great teacher. He is very creative explaining things and he adapts the lesson to the student. Moreover, he transmits his passion during the lessons, making the student very motivated to go home and study guitar. He is also very organised and the lessons have a certain structure/logic.
