Overview

Greetings! I hope to be of great guidance in your musical journey.
I am fortunate to have learned from some highly remarkable musicians, and enjoy sharing my knowledge with those seeking to learn and further their understanding and skill.
I have been playing guitar for over a dozen years, and have almost a decade of private teaching experience with students of all ages and skill levels. I am a very open minded musician, and appreciate all styles of music. Whether you're a complete beginner, or have been playing for a while and want to get to the next level of understanding and performance, I can help. I play everything from classical guitar to pop, blues, classic rock, heavy metal... you name it.
I have received several awards for teaching as well as for performing both solo and with several groups and ensembles.
I am Bilingual in English and Spanish.

Great teacher and kind with kids. My daughter loved her guitar lessons. Too bad we are going to be out of town for a while. Thanks for your time

I've been taking lessons through Skype for about 3 months. Lucas is very talented and patient. We have fun doing all the different techniques. I look forward to taking more lessons and learning more.
