I have over 25 years experience playing the guitar, both classical and flamenco. I have performed in numerous concerts and master classes in NYC. I can help you with all aspects of good technique. If you are looking for a teacher that understands pedagogy and how serious the art of learning guitar can be, I am the one. Often undoing bad habits because of bad teachers is what I specialize in. I have experience teaching students from age 10 to adults.

Ivan is an exceptional teacher. His instruction goes far beyond the technical foundation required for all musicians - he integrates teachings that help one tap into the emotional connection to music and how that impacts playing. His disciplined approach helped me break out of some habits that developed as a self-taught guitarist and his patience was an asset for someone like me, who is very impatient.

From Ivan you will establish a foundation that is build on theory and technique. With Ivan there are no shortcuts - practice, be diligent and you'll achieve consistency. He works you hard but it's worth the effort because with these pillars, even I, an uneducated musician, have seen growth in my skills.

Geography is no issue so no matter where in the world you live, I highly recommend Ivan as a teacher and mentor.

Ivan Gomez is one of the best guitarist I’ve ever met, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to take many online classes with him. Unlike many teachers Ivan puts a lot of attention in technique, saying that it’s the most important aspect of the your playing. I’ve been able to learn a lot about the guitar, as he showed me many ways to improve my playing. I highly recommend him for other students of any level.

Ivan is just an incredible teacher and performer. He has a great passion for sharing his masterful knowledge of both flamenco and classical guitar with his students to help them grow and advance to the next level as guitarists. His ability to break down and clearly explain techniques and musical aspects of both classical and flamenco guitar makes it easy for students to grasp and understand concepts, and incorporate them into their own playing seemlessly. His knowledge of both styles is truly unmatched. Studying with Ivan, you can be sure you are learning proper techniques from an incredible player and excellent teacher who has each students best interest at heart. In my experience with Ivan, he helped me so much to advance my level of playing and knowledge of technique in so many ways in both styles. I highly recommend Ivan to any student who is looking to advance their skills and learn classical or flamenco guitar from a true expert in the field.

After going through several teachers, I found Ivan and stuck with him. He teaches with patience and passion, a solid understanding of form and technique, history of music, composers...I leave every lesson feeling like I learned so much more than how to get through a piece. I highly recommend for students of any level.
