My Name is Luis I have been playing the guitar for sometime now as a Hobby . Last year I decided to continue to pursue completing my music degree . I am currently a second year degree student at Berklee -Online School of Music. I have had the privilege of teaching at the former Brennan Rock and Roll Academy here in Sioux Falls South Dakota.During that time , I found teaching to be one the most rewarding contributions I can make to an individual .
I have a whole new perspective on how to present lessons . With my teachings, you will learn music through some of the proven methods taught at Berklee School Of Music. As well as concepts that I have found to have students play music and have fun quickly.The instrument can be overwhelming sometimes but with good guidance you can truly begin to enjoy the guitar and all it has to offer.

I feel challenged with each lesson, because of this I think have advanced much faster then I was ever able to achieve on my own. His direction helps me me to stay focused on the weeks tasks.

Lessons are fun and worthwhile! My son is feeling good about his progress. We are extremely fortunate to have Luis as his instructor.
Luis is great at responding to emails. Easy to talk to. Accommodating schedule. Payments system is easy to negotiate . Highly recommend Luis for guitar lessons.
