In addition to the usual benefits of my recorded lessons in the familiar format, I've recently introduced a groundbreaking feature for my students. If they encounter difficulties with the rhythm in a passage, I create a short video of myself performing that passage alongside a metronome. Now, students have the option to loop that passage endlessly with a simple mouse click and practice it alongside me for as long as they desire. They also have the flexibility to adjust the speed of the passage to suit their needs. It truly feels like having a personal trainer practicing with you every time! This feature provides instant feedback, helping you identify whether you're speeding up or slowing down at specific points in a passage, and it allows you to make necessary adjustments by slowing down the video to an extreme if required.

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
Practicing alone can lead to the repetition of bad habits without the knowledge of whether you're practicing correctly
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
Practice together with me! Boost your confidence by utilizing video loops and adjusting the playback speed (watch video here)
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
Will it have the human element I'm looking for?
Our relationship is personable - many students choose to share personal thoughts about the week, and I do the same. We have conversations!
Are you going to be able to see/hear me well?
I watch your videos on a 30-inch monitor using high-quality speakers and at a closer proximity than would naturally occur during an in-person visit.
I am not good with technology, is it easy to operate?
Yes! It is easier than a Zoom or Skype call. Most of my students are seniors who have very limited experience with technology, watch the testimonials! Contact me for a FREE meeting! We’ll get to know one another, and I’ll set it all up for you - no hassle! Your lesson is delivered directly to your email and can be accessed from any device.
- Classical Guitar
I have been playing the classical guitar since I was 8 years old and know all the pitfalls and barriers you must overcome to reach the next level. I have developed a brand-new way of looking at guitar technique and can't wait to share it with you!
- Solo guitar improvisation
Are you tired of playing the same thing over and over again? Develop your improvisation skills with me, and you'll never get bored again! Your creativity will expand at an exponential rate. These videos were created on the fly, with 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 ;)
- Acoustic Guitar
Do you like the sound of a steel string guitar? I can teach you how to make the best out of this instrument! The acoustic guitar offers the possibilities of a classical guitar + electric guitar combined.
My intensive classical guitar training gives me a considerable edge in playing and understanding the ukulele. It is similar to a guitar, but with only 4 strings. That means all chord shapes and melodic lines are virtually identical to playing those strings on a regular guitar. It's a simpler and more accessible instrument for anyone who wants to learn their first musical instrument.
- 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.
- Rhythm Mastery
Do you feel difficulty understanding rhythm or just rocking that groove? I can teach you the strategies to master rhythm and never be lost in counting again. Take my rhythm course and see how far you can get!
