About the lesson
I teach all levels of guitar players and beginners in singing. I believe I have something to bring to the table to a lot of people's playing. I believe in always approaching and understanding the essentials many times, to have them deeply ingrained in you. That is how the artistic mind takes over and shuts off the logical mind, once you have internalized the simple concepts.
All my students love the way I approach more complicated concepts and make them digestible, finding ways to apply the students' own imagination and artistry to their studies.
My main focus is having students find their own identity on the instrument. How to play songs and understand them, so you have even more fun :)

I am a guitar player, singer-songwriter and artist from São Paulo, Brazil. I started giving lessons at the beginning of the pandemic and have found great success with my students. I have been playing guitar and singing from the age of 15 and it's been my main source of income from when I was 17 years old. I have played in cover bands, and now focus on my own music, which is out on all streaming services. I have a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music, something I decided to do because I wanted to be around the best people who could help fulfill my artistic vision. I love teaching and it's always great to see my students progress and find their own unique voice inside music.
Perfect! Joao is an awesome teacher who has totally helped my son foster his love of music. He is patient, kind and makes the lessons a lot of fun! He is very thoughtful about his approach and my 8 year old looks forward to spending time with him each week.
- Joao's response : I’m teaching Caitlin’s son, Cole, and it’s been a super rewarding experience! He’s a super sweet kid and it’s been great to see him develop so far

Really great teacher! Very knowledgeable and patient
Great music theory knowledge and diverse guitar picking and handstyle techniques. He's good at understanding the difficulties and questions we get as we learn. I'd recommend to anyone from beginner to advanced.
Absolute genius! Will help you explore your full potential and beyond. I've been Joao's friend and student for a long time now and can't stress enough how much of a superb talent he is, as much as a really capable, funny and patient teacher.
Joao is an amazing person and teacher! He is very patient and knowledgeable of guitar techniques, singing, and songwriting, and also has a lot of great musical influences! I 100% recommend his lessons!
