Find Joy of being creative with your GUITAR, when you learn the right and organized way

Methodology

Graduated in Europe as a Classical Guitarist, after becoming a solo classical performer in many different countries throughout Europe, i started to study Jazz, Rock and many other fusion styles that I play. I have wrote a very simplified, applicable and visual method. I verified that it become a fun habit to practice the fretboard maps of scales, arpeggios and chords and get ready to apply all those 3 concepts into songs.

Background

Experienced all kinds of music styles specially in Europe with different formats and styles. I have a significant experience as a guitar and music instructor. Im very passionate to help people to find that joyful route of music able to make our spirit deeply vibrate. Just come for a trial lesson in my studio.

Rates

Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $190
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $370

Details

My rates are equal to all levels and $40 an hour is a fair rate

I was hired by Atlantic University to rehabilitate the outdated music program. Enrollment was down to less than 100 students, the facilities needed remodeling, and a new faculty was imperative.
During my tenure at the University I successfully:
 Worked closely with government officials and university management to secure a $250,000 donation.
 Interviewed and hired staff to more than double the size of the faculty.
 Implemented a new curriculum with a commitment to excellence, clear definable goals and standards, and a more comprehensive and interactive method emphasizing better communication with current and potential
students.
 Retrained and supported faculty in the new curriculum.
 Improved public image and enrollment by increasing community outreach
and visibility.
 Started the now world famous Baranqui JAZZ Festival benefitting the
school and showcasing the students in interactive performance with world
famous musicians.
Under my guidance enrollment grew over 300 percent and the program became the model program for music schools in the Atlantic Region.
