Teaching since:

I am a professional guitar player originally from Ecuador and based in Boston. During my long music career of more than 15 years, I have played many styles, including jazz, rock, pop, funk, and blues. My professional performance experience as well as my Bachelor of Performance from Berklee College of Music have both given me a solid foundation on the instrument and in music theory. I have experience teaching students from all levels and ages, from young children to adult learners and seniors. It is my goal to always make my lessons educational and fun at the same time to keep my students motivated, as this is the key to enjoying the process of learning an instrument.
Lessons can be held at your home or at my Somerville studio, which includes convenient off-street parking.

Acoustic Guitar · In studio

Santiago is an absolute rock star guitar teacher. What I appreciate most is his artistic attention to detail, which is exemplified by his emphasis on technique and focus on the texture and color of the instrument. He is very patient and funny. He has definitely inspired me to keep playing and discover a wider range of genres. I highly recommend him!
