Mr. Tomas Ballesteros is a great teacher. My 9 year old son began guitar lessons with Mr. Ballesteros in January 2016. Since then he has learned a lot. Mr. Ballesteros is very experienced, prompt, punctual and professional. We definitely would recommend his services.

My son was very comfortable with Mr. Tomas. My son is very young, but Mr. Tomas gave him a shot. I appreciate his patience and willingness to be flexible with my sons 3-year old personality. I also learned a lot to practice with my son. Thank you Mr. Tomas!

I was self taught for @ 5 months then decided to get lessons. I wanted a pro to be able to assess where I was at and give me the right instruction.

Tomas was able to to give me just that. He also taught me some neat strum patterns that made it fun. My wife really likes the sounds I can make with the guitar after only 2 lessons with Tomas.

On top of that he is a genuinely pleasant person to be around. I can tell he loves teaching people guitar.

My wife really likes the genre of music I am learning because she grew up with it. I like it as well as the finger skills that go along with it.

I believe this experience learning from Tomas will greatly influence the personal music style that I end up developing into.

My lesson was very rewarding - excellent instructor , if you have a question he has an answer . He knows the guitar - Mr. Tomas makes you feel at ease , I was having a problem with my short fingers . He told me all the things that I was not doing correct and this was my first lesson - He made me feel really good when I did something right .

I have known Mr . Tomas for a short period of time and believe me if he can teach me and I am 70 years old and I have tired taking lessons before and they never worked out . Mr . Tomas is the person to go with .

Tomas will know how to convince you that learning how to play the guitar is the best decision you have ever made. His life stories shine through the pieces that he will take the time to play for you and they will leave you with chills.
He is a very patient and dedicated instructor, who will always make you feel confident and listened to.
He will teach you many things, not only as an instructor, but also as a very generous and kind human being.
