I have been teaching voice for 7 years and my beginner students are already singing their own gigs. I have had only one advanced student in singing and in 2010 he got the zarzuela prize in the most prestigious opera competition in the world "Placido Domingo´s Operalia). I can teach in Spanish, English and Italian. and for voice I specialize in opera and mariachi music. In guitar as well as in Piano I only teach beginners.

*** Lesson Details ***
For voice I only take students from 15 years old and on. This is only because the children's voice is very delicate and I think it requires a teacher who specializes in children for it is a big responsibility. Once the puberty voice change is gone: this is my field of expertise. with great discipline and a huge desire of success, a student could be singing in less than 6 months in a proper, healthy and beautiful way.

For guitar and for Piano, since it is for beginners, is very simple and fast, and as well as singing, if you do your homework, then the achievements will come faster than you think!!!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I need from students to provide a piano or a keyboard for voice Lessons and for Piano lessons. I would provide the music to be copied, or they can buy their own music. For guitar they have to have a classical guitar and I would bring mine so that we both can use a guitar.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in opera (for voice), but it is adaptable to any kind of singing. In guitar and Piano is only for beginners.

· Singing · In studio I do no come from a singing background, however I am a stage actor. I first went in search of a voice teacher because I was told that my instrument was not strong and I needed to train it. I was so lucky to find Octavio. Not only is he an amazingly talented and gifted artist himself, but he has the patience and the nurturing capacity I feel all teachers and coaches should have when teaching. I walked into my first class not knowing a thing about voice, but he did not dumb down anything because of that. He expects excellence and professionalism from you and will challenge you to go beyond where you think you could. With out him I am certain I would not have been prepared for graduate school acting auditions. I am very sad to see him go, but I'm glad that others will get to experience his gift! Thank you so much Octavio! You really have helped my confidence so much as a performer and set me on a path to learn more about voice and to seek more training.

· Singing · In studio Octavio is assisting me in reading music in order to not just sing by tune but the correct time.

· Singing · In studio Octavio takes his time with his students. He worked from the ground up so that no bad habits are formed. Great instructor. Worth doing more time

· Singing · In studio I was nervous when I first started my lessons, starting at my age, but Octavio made me feel comfortable and confident. He was very businesslike, and treated me like a professional, instead of just a student. I enjoyed every minute of my lessons, and would definitely recommend Octavio as a teacher.

· Guitar · In home Mr. Octavio knows how to motivate a child. My son gets easily distracted with telling stories, etc and Mr. Octavio is able to get him to focus so well. He has an excellent combination of firmness with motivation. Plus he really knows how to get my 8 year old to understand lessons. Highly recommend!
