About Giancarlo C.


My name is Giancarlo Castillo and I am a Los Angeles based guitarist and instructor. Throughout my career, I have toured with artists such as Quinn XCII, Lauren Sanderson, Wizkid, and Skizzy Mars (to name a few)

I graduated from Berklee College of Music back in 2010 and have spent almost 10 years educating and training future guitar players, in hopes to make them better than me. I hope to be of help in fulfilling your own expectations! I specialize in R&B, Neo-soul, Jazz, Rock, and Blues music.

I work with GC at a music school and he's a really great teacher. We work with some of the same students, and I always see a huge increase in their ability after they work with him!

I have been working alongside GC at a music school for a few years now. He is a very knowledgable and versatile teacher and musician. His students stick with him for the long haul. GC is great at gauging where the student is at musically and what it will take to push them to the next level. I highly recommend this guy.

GC was a great teacher! He was perfect for what I needed. Specifically, GC has met me where I am in terms of my skills and experience. I am a more advanced student than GC typically gets. Instead of teaching me exercises and songs segments, which I have done with other teachers, he focused on developing my musicality and improvisation concepts! I love working with GC!
