Francisco Díaz is not only an extraordinary violinist. He is one of the best mentors I have ever had. He identifies who his students are and he tries to make a deep understanding of them so that way he can help them and fix anything they can do wrong. He not only helps people to become great musicians, he also helps people to become better humans.
