Overview:
I'm 21 years old from Mexico City. I’m a touring and session musician, guitarist, songwriter, arranger and composer. I graduated from Musicians Institute on Music and Guitar Performance, awarded the Synester Gates Scholarship. Having the opportunity to play with the masters such as Steve Vai and led a solo with his band, Paul Reed Smith, Scott Page (Pink Floyd), Carlos Alomar (David Bowie), among others, taught me things for the real life as a musician. Attending clinics for a variety of styles and artists helped me to develop different skills and the will to share the love for music. I'm an EMG, Yamaha and LINE 6 artist and product tester. I’ve toured all the U.S twice having over 70 live shows on the road. I have performed in L.A 60-70 gigs. My total of lifve shows is around 140. I’m part of a worldwide community of female musicians and guitarists among the best of the world. I have participated in benefit performances, recording sessions, directed music bands, got experience teaching guitar and bass lessons for all ages in English and Spanish.
EXPERIENCE
I started teaching friends from middle school who had no music background at all. I found out it was cool explaining what I knew and it was not only helpful for them to learn but also for me. I kept attending lessons until I moved out to study College in L.A. While I was attending college, I kept meeting with people to study and explain some topics , classes, and techniques. I kept giving lessons for guitar and bass in english and spanish, preparing beginners to learn a setlist and musicians to go on tour. I like combining practice and theory so it is balanced. I like motivating them and if they get stuck, I try to keep the lessons interactive or find something fun to play and learn so they don't feel discouraged or feel like quitting.
METHODS USED
I started teaching my friends in school who didn't have any experience playing guitar. I can combine material given with a variety of books for an appropriate and interactive experience that can help any student to understand a topic and apply it while playing. My goal is to give students anything that fits their needs.. I try to explain the roots of where the theory comes from. I was always looking for a reason behind it while I was in college. Later on, I started giving bass and guitar lessons, preparing students to perform live and even go on tour. I'm patient and adapt to the student's need and pace. I enjoy explaining and even learning because I believe teachers learn from the students as well.
LESSON STYLE
I enjoy playing all music genres in general but I enjoy the most playing and teaching metal, rock, blues and jazz blues. No matter what level you are, I’d love to help you improve your playing, technique and knowledge. From basic chords to different chord voicings, scales, modes, exercises, finger strength, speed, arpeggios, reading, music theory or ear training, I look forward teaching you and sharing passion for music. Seeing that students get motivated makes being a teacher worth it. I want to inspire the student to improve and enjoy music and enjoy playing.
