Hugo is an amazing teacher! Hugo was my private lessons and ensemble teacher. I have had a few guitar teachers, but Hugo's lessons were my favorite. His lessons are fun and effective. With regular lessons, my playing advanced very quickly. I knew nothing about classical guitar, but I found myself wanting to learn more and more with each lesson/ensemble rehearsal. Hugo is very smart, patient, reliable, and experienced as a performer AND teacher. You wont regret taking lessons with Hugo!
I took classical guitar lessons from Dr. Hugo N. for about three years while he was getting his doctorate. I've taken lessons with many different instructors over the years and Hugo is by far the best for multiple reasons. He is passionate about performing as well as teaching music to anybody who wants to learn. He is effective at identifying the zone of proximal development so he is perfect for students at any level of performance. He is extremely knowledgeable about countless genres and the criticism that he provides is constructive and is given in a manner that allows the student to feel comfortable to learn from their mistakes. Along with all of that, Hugo is one of the nicest individuals that I've had the pleasure to know let alone to be able to learn from. Any issue on the guitar you may want to improve, look no further, Hugo N. will help you get where you want to go.
Hugo is a world class guitarist and a world class teacher. He taught me essential elements that took my playing skills to another level.
I took lessons with Hugo from 2015-2017. I had three years of classical guitar experience prior to taking lessons from him. During those two years we worked on etudes from various composers such as; Mateo Carcass, Fernando Sor, and Leo Brouwer, helping me improve my technique. For classical guitar repertoire we worked on pieces from composers such as Santiago de Murcia, Roland Dyens, and Jorge Cardoso all part of the standard classical repertoire. In the area of beformance he taught me visualization techniques to help with memory issues, as well as dealing with performance anxiety. He is a great teacher and I recommend him.
I started taking classical guitar lessons at UNLV with no prior background knowledge. Hugo taught me proper technique, style, and repertoire and before I knew it, I was playing pieces I didn’t think I’d be able to play within my first year of taking lessons with him. He inspired me every lesson to get better and I highly recommend him as a teacher!
I took lessons from hugo for two years. I came in knowing next to nothing about the classical guitar style, composers, or techniques. Hugo was able to teach me many things. He kept the lessons focused and efficient, and anything that was wrong, he identified and corrected quickly and effectively. He never got angry with me even if I didn't practice a thing in between lessons. You do not need to look anywhere else for an amazing guitar teacher.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
