LIVE ONLINE ONE-ON-ONE LESSONS VIA FACEBOOK OR ZOOM
Expert, relaxed, friendly, patient lessons with a performer, teacher, music critic, author. Many years experience as a noted performer and teacher. Within a short time you will learn how to play popular, classical, or flamenco guitar, and you will be playing full and satisfying solo classical guitar pieces, or authentic flamenco guitar music, or any kind of music or songs that you like. All of my students play extremely well - so will you.
I give you a solid foundation of basic technique, which prepares you to then move properly and more easily to intermediate and advanced music, and I focus on the kind of music you like best. With basic guitar technique you will be able to play any kind of music you like - movie themes, Broadway songs, old standards, folk, ethnic, and popular music from any era, and classical and flamenco guitar. You will learn how to play and how to read music.
POPULAR - I will teach you basic technique - how to play the guitar the right way - using your fingers. When you play with your fingers you can play both melody and harmony by yourself, and so the guitar becomes a true solo instrument. And as you learn how to play I use your favorite music to teach you. I will make a special arrangement of any song that you would like to learn. In a short time you will be playing all the songs and music you always wanted to play.
CLASSICAL - For classical guitar I teach in the famed tradition of the Madrid school, passing down all I learned from professors of classical guitar of the University of Madrid. You will learn to read music as you learn all of the techniques used in playing classical guitar.
FLAMENCO - Student for many years of the great virtuosos Mario Escudero and Sabicas, I teach in their legacy of authentic traditional flamenco. You will learn all of the techniques used in flamenco, and just as importantly you will learn how to play the music and make it sound like flamenco.
