Overview

My name is Luis Alberto Castro, Venezuelan musician formed in the renowned Venezuelan music program "El Sistema" since 1996. During this time I have had the opportunity to receive musical education in general and specifically as a French horn player.
As a French horn player I was a member of the prestigious Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela (conducted by Gustavo Dudamel), also a recognized professor of French Horn in my country (with a own horn method finish recently) and I worked as musical director from “El Sistema” since 1999, involved in a lot of musical projects in support of all sectors of society.
In my experience I had the opportunity to create and train orchestras of all levels and ages, I worked as a musical coach of the most important orchestras in “El Sistema”, obtaining important recognition for my contributions to increase and development of various academics programs.

This is fantastic! I know Luis's work not only as a player, but also as an amazing teacher for french horn and a remarkable brass trainer. This is a great opportunity to learn and develop horn technique in a very dynamic way, and I can testify that the results are remarkable! With all of his experience in El Sistema's Orchestras, this is a well proven method. Highly recommended!!!

Cuantas palabras serian para agradecer a tan excelente profesor, que con una buena base técnica y una manera sencilla de interpretación de la música a formado y a sembrado semillas en jovenes, que hoy en día muchos han dado sus frutos y continuarán dando frutos, me enorgullese decir que pertenezco a una de sus primeras generaciones que el ha formado de Cornistas.

y cabe destacar que es muy enfocado y dedicado en lo que hace, le gusta trazarse metas y cumplirlas, imparte discilplina e insentiva a dar más siempre, no me quejo ni me quejaré jamás de mi primer Maestro

RECOMENDADO AL 1000 %

I would like to recomend Luis Castro as a teacher. I play the violin, however because he's a great musician and a conductor, he taught me how to order the way that I used to practice. I think this is very important, because I was taking my violin lessons and I felt that I was practicing a lot but it was never enough. I wasn't doing it well. So he explained me how to distribute the time and how to develop all the details as, intonation, rhytm, how to prioritize the melody in a contrapoint piece, the dynamic. There are so much things involve in a piece that it's difficult to get everything cordinate. He is a teacher who has so much skills and talent so I'm willing to take lessons with him again soon.

Soy la mamá de DIEGO JESUS RIVAS BONILLA, de 11 años. Niño cornista que ha recibido las clases del maestro LUIS CASTRO. Diego forma parte del Sistema de Orquestas de Venezuela, y frecuentemente ha participado en las clases del maestro, pues son PRECISAS, PROFESIONALES, DINÁMICAS, Y CON EXCELENCIA MUSICAL, que han impulsado a los jóvenes a quienes se les dedica con su técnica y dirección en este mundo. Doy garantía de éxito con sus clases, pues lo certifico con mi hijo.
