About Guilherme F.

Hello! Let's make music! I am a recent graduate of Berklee, where I earned my degree in both Jazz Composition and Guitar Performance. Whether you've just picked up the guitar or you are looking to explore a new style, I enjoy motivating my students to learn. Growing up in Brazil, I have a strong background in Samba, Bossa nova and other Latin styles such as Flamenco. With the opportunity to study at Berklee, I took full advantage of studying under renown professors of Jazz and Blues. I enjoy transferring this enthusiasm for music to my students, guiding them toward their goals and having fun along the way. I look forward to hearing from you!
I also perform regularly with my duo.

I really like the approach that Guilherme has. He understands the philosophy of teaching music to children. My son is amazed by his technique.

Guilherme has been extremely flexible and understanding with my 16 year old son. My son loves going to his lesson and knows he needs to practice a bit more at home.
I strongly recommend Guilherme!

I've taken about 10 flamenco (and some bossa nova) guitar lessons with Guilherme so far. I had taken flamenco lessons in the past with other instructors, but this is the first time I've actually made progress. He's done a great job of creating a lesson plan and teaching a very technical style, while keeping it fun and exciting. I really look forward to my lessons every week, which is a credit to Guilherme's ability to balance method with fun. If you're at all interested in latin styles or jazz, I very highly recommend Guilherme!

Guilherme is a wonderful teacher; I highly recommend him! He is knowledgeable, patient, and always kind. He adapts the lessons to my interests and musical taste and offers productive suggestions. He has assisted building my repertoire by noting the chords for songs I would like to play. He can teach all levels...you won't go wrong.

Guilherme's method of teaching was one of flexibility. He was able to start my daughter off playing chords, strumming, and reading music because of her familiarity with the piano. She is quite excited to continue her lessons next week. I highly recommend Guilherme.
