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

Dr. Costa's

Instruction 2.0

  • 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

I teach:

  • 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.
