I love to challenge and test my students so don't be surprised if I take you out of your comfort zone for a minute or two. This is done to see how far you've come along with my teaching so far. I understand that different people learn at different paces and I will always do everything I can to get you to master your instrument at any speed. I also like to make my students laugh if I can. I want my lessons to be informative but fun. Remember, learning doesn't have to be a chore.

To me, teaching is not stiffly sitting in a drab room while a teacher lectures a student. I prefer to look at it as having the good fortune to meet somebody who is truly interested in entering the realm of music and has asked me to help them. It can be daunting walking into your first lesson or trying something new, so I like to make it as relaxed as possible while still progressing and succeeding at a desired pace. Thoroughness beats speed! There is nothing like seeing someone's eyes light up as they witness themself succeed in music.

Instruments:

I began studying music at age 10 in the National School of Art in my hometown Havana, Cuba. My instrument was the guitar, which was a gift from my parents because I always had a strange attraction to the melody. I decided to study music because when I look back to when I was younger, my favorite memory was when I used to sit in the park with my parents and listen to the bands play. When I began music school I always played in special events. In the year 2002 I won a scholarship to study at the National School of Art in Havana. After several aptitude examinations I was finally elected, and that is one of the most beautiful memories I have of my time as a student. For the next 4 years, I took part in different competitions and music concerts with the Symphony Orchestra of Havana and I had the honor of playing with Leo Braower, Joaquin Clerch, and many special presentations as a student. In 2007 I began to study at the University of Arts of Cuba. While studying I was also a professor at the National School of Art. I liked the work as a professor of music because I always had the councils of my teachers and those experiences I then conveyed to my students in each of my classes. After I graduated from college I decided to be a teacher; that was where I felt more needed and knew I had to be. I want my students to be honest and true to themselves. I help my students learn the music as though it is vital in the life of any human being.

When meeting a student, I want to find their "currency". Meaning, I want to find what makes them want to work and practice. There is nothing more rewarding than working for a goal and accomplishing it. I like finding music that my student wants to learn and making a music theory lesson that compliments the instrument lesson.

...for missing out on playing the chords and shapes needed in rhythm guitar playing. A teacher worth their salt will give their guitar students the tools and knowledge to be able to play in both styles. Exclusively focusing on just one style will deprive a student of valuable playing prowess and music theory experience.   Lead Guitar Exercises   For complete beginners wanting to learn how to play lead guitar, I recommend starting by learning how to play a simple chromatic major scale to a strict rhythm provided by a metronome.

Soloing Over "Autumn Leaves"

...so many definitive recordings of “Autumn Leaves”. A quick YouTube search will find you recordings by artists as diverse as Stan Getz, John Coltrane, Chet Baker, Nat King Cole, Barbara Streisand, Eric Clapton, etc. But no recording of “Autumn Leaves” is as definitive as Cannonball Adderley’s recording from his album entitled “Somethin’ Else”. I highly suggest you check that recording out if you haven’t already. And learn the introduction. I remember learning and improvising over “Autumn Leaves” in high school.

The tube amp will typically be much louder than the digital amp, even if they have the same amount of power.   Effects   Effects are very important to most guitar players, particularly electric guitarists.

The group class is also a fun time to play through familiar pieces, or, for some students, to listen to pieces they haven’t reached yet and just itch for a chance to try the next one in the book. Group class is when some teachers are really creative: can you ‘name that tune’ from the book when the teacher just plays the opening notes? Or what about the penny on the shoe trick? ... Read More

Loosen Up to Understand Rhythm

...If you just started studying music again, and your only prior experience was in very formal education, you probably learned the performance conventions expected of classical musicians. If you go to watch an orchestra, you’ll notice that the musicians move very little during the performance, save for those parts of their bodies that actually manipulate their instruments. In fact, watching the perfectly synchronized bows of the violin section, the slides on the trombones and the other motions that musicians make is one of the visual appeals of seeing an excellent orchestra.   It can be very difficult to learn to count rhythm, however, when you ...
