I've known Silvio for many years and I always learn something new every time I hear him play. He is a very talented and dedicated musician/instructor with a broad knowledge of many different styles of music. You can't go wrong taking lessons with Silvio. Highly recommended!

Silvio is a long time friend and a great musician. He has a strong work ethic and is one of the most knowledgeable musicians I know. He has copious experience playing and teaching to all ages. If I ever wanted to learn guitar, I would choose Silvio.

My name is Kyle Egan and I approve this message.

Silvio was a co-worker of mine at a music school in Florida. I highly recommend Silvio as a guitar teacher. He is great with both children and adults. Extremely knowledgeable and also willing to work with all types of students. Cannot go wrong with this guy!
