I liked how he was open minded! Which is hard to find. He was very respectful.

Rodrigo was flexible with my crazy schedule and was always willing to go the extra mile. I have really developed a true love now for the accordion thanks to him.

Rodrigo is very knowledgeable and helpful—he helped make many concepts clear to me in only a few lessons. I am excited to practice and continue to improve my playing!
