My son is a BEGINNER beginner. Rodrigo is a very nice guy and seems to know his stuff very well. I would give him 5 stars but I don't think he realized that my son needed the basic, basic 1st lesson (i.e. how to hold the instrument). We've only attended one session so this is fully based on that one lesson. I'm sure he'll adjust his teaching from here on out.+ Read More
Mr. Rodrigo is a professional, respectful and super patient instructor. I could not made a better choice. I am looking forward to my next class @
Rodrigo is a great teacher, not only an expert musician, but he shares all his knowledge.
Great introductory class, covering the basic fundamentals of singing the right way with confidence.
Rodrigo is very thoughtful and methodical in his teaching. He taught me just the right amount to keep me busy without being overwhelmed. Can't wait for the next lesson!
Very knowledgeable about music theory and very likeable.
It was a great lesson I learned a lot and practicing looking forward to my next lesson I'm going to become a regular student
Rodrigo is very musically knowledgable and has great teaching skills.
Rodrigo is a great instructor, super knowledgeable and an expert musician. Although he is well versed in may styles, we focus on the theory, technique and culture of the Latin forms. Rodrigo is passionate about his craft but easy going and patient. I always look forward to our sessions and highly recommend him as an instructor.+ Read More
I had never taken lessons via Skype before, but Rodrigo really did a great job or making the lessons relevant to my interests. He was incredibly knowledgeable and flexible! I would definitely recommend him.
Rodrigo is the best teacher! He has a keen understandings of main concepts of music and showed me the proper postures and fingerings of the instrument. While he was teaching me how to play the instrument, he also introduced me a various genres and styles of music.He is very knowledgeable of music theory such as chord transpositions, terminology, as well as the musical notations. He also was willing to modify the lessons to meet my needs and abilities so that I can be successful. He truly is a multi-talented teacher and very very nice one, too. Most of all, it was so fun to take lessons from him.+ Read More
I've only had three lessons with Rodrigo but so far all of them have exceeded my expectations of a music instructor. Rodrigo is a great guy and accordionist. I like how I'm learning music theory along with my instrument because it will help me if I decide to learn more instruments. Thanks Rodrigo!+ Read More
My daughter has really enjoyed her lessons. We started with four lessons and hope to continue. I really appreciate that Rodrigo is bilingual and can help her learn songs in Spanish and English.
my girls are happy with their teacher.
