I am originally from Peru. I came 10 years ago to the SW Florida Region. I began playing the guitar at the age of 13 along with other folkloric instruments from Peru. I formed part of my School Marching Band playing the Cornet and then the Clarinet. That gave me a bigger understanding of Music and its different voices. Right after graduating High School I moved to the US to continue with my studies in Music at a professional level. That is when I decided to move to go to Berklee College of Music to Double Major in Music Performance and Contemporary Arranging/Production.

After Berklee, I decided to go to Full Sail University. Obtaining an Associate's Degree in Recording Arts, seeking to understand better a musician from a different view. Besides taking classes of Psychology, this major helped me understand better a musician and their needs.

I have been teaching guitar for 10 years now, and I love it, because I always learn from my students, ALWAYS. I give classes in Spanish or English and I teach almost any style of music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I specialize in beginner and intermediate level. I teach from very basic essentials, to pretty advance knowledge/technique. I like to teach music theory and have my students learn how to read music to be musicians with knowledge.

The main topics I like to concentrate on are:

Chords: Triads & 7th Chords including Tensions
Chord Voicing
Scales
Arpeggios
Technique
Improvization Tips
Music Theory
Harmony
Ear Training
Rhythm comp
Sight Reading
.. and more

I always like to concentrate in just one or two of these topics per lesson, and go in cycles so we have a different class with a new feel every day. Keeping the class fun and exciting.

I forgot to mention the fact that I am biligual (Spanish/English). Being in the Miami area I think is essential to speak both languages.
