Break more challenging material into bite-sized portions. When we speak of difficulty, we speak of a lack of familiarity. Together, we can find a ...
I have a ten year experience career teaching guitar - privately and throughout official schools - to students of all ages, from curious toddlers to contemplative seniors. Prior to move to the United States, I taught at AMVP Musical Academy (Portugal) where I also got my conservatory degree in Guitar performance. Relying on a fundamental classic technique I can guide you through every musical genre that you wish to approach and enlighten you with the best musical foundation that there is. Whether you want to learn a specific song/repertoire or you want me to guide you trough the keystones of this instrument I will always lookout for your personal satisfaction and development in the process.
I'm a recorded artist with two albums as a member of the AMVP Guitar Orchestra: Contrastes (2003) and Plaisir (2005) and appeared at prestigious venues in Portugal, Saint Peterburg (Russia), Paris (France) and Frankfurt (Germany).
