Hello! I have 17 years of teaching experience, in a variety of playing styles and musical genres. I am formally trained (classical), but I also have always played (and gigged) by ear, working at improvising solos, fingerstyle guitar, on electric, acoustic and nylon string guitars. From these playing styles, I teach to my students as many tips, techniques, and practice ideas, as I know. My passion is to share artistic and technical knowledge, and I am inspired as a teacher when I see my students improving because of their dedication and passion for the instrument.
