INTRODUCING: EDUARDO’S INSTRUCTION 2.0
The cutting edge in Guitar Education!
How does it work?
Step 1 - Upload a video performance
Step 2 - Get targeted multimedia feedback (Score/Tablature + Goals + Video Demonstrations and Strategies)
Zoom/In person Lessons
It is hard to remember the important parts of the lesson after it’s over
Goals and strategies are diluted with small talk
Low accountability; difficult to know if your practice is staying on track
Waste time in traffic and scheduling/rescheduling lessons
Prone to scheduling conflicts
Playing one on one does not involve a process of preparing and producing a final product of any merit
Not conducive to self-feedback; you never know how you are sounding
A moment gone is a moment gone; no rewind
Poor micromovements go unnoticed; no slow motion
Teachers are REACTIVE; time constraints put pressure on instructors to act quickly with less thought
The recorded lesson can be referenced again and again
Goals are clear and precise, visually highlighted over the score or tablature
High accountability; focused practice is guided step-by-step using the marked score
Gain time by eliminating commutes and no need to schedule/reschedule
Record each submission at your leisure anytime before your deadline
Knowing your performance will be captured on video motivates you to prepare and perform at your best
Conducive to self-feedback; learn by watching and listening to yourself
I share my screen with your video, rewind as many times as needed and make suggestions showing your own hands
I play your video in slow motion to point out errors in micromovements
Teachers are ACTIVE; more time allows instructors to consider what is really best for the student
- Classical Guitar:
I have played the classical guitar since I was 8 years old and know all the pitfalls and barriers you must break in order to get to the next level. I developed a brand new way of looking at guitar technique and can't wait to share it all with you!
- Solo guitar improvisation:
Tired of playing the same thing over and over again? Develop your improvisation skills with me and you will never get bored again! Your creativity will expand at an exponential rate. These videos were created on the fly, no preparation, just grabbing the guitar and letting it happen. I can teach you to do the same!
- Electric guitar: (These are my compositions by the way!)
Learn how to not only play the right notes but to be consistent at it, your new level awaits you and all you need is the electric guitar and me ;)
- Music Theory and Appreciation:
Understand how music works, get into the mind of composers through musical analysis and gain a new degree of appreciation of this beautiful art form called music.
