Introduction: I've had an extensive background in music and music performance. I've taught guitar lessons in other countries as well as the U.S. I have a degree in music theory and performance and a two year certificate from the Guitar Institute of Technology, in Hollywood, California. I received a Barry Manilow Music Scholarship in 2016 for my musical creativity. I love expressing myself creatively through music, especially guitar playing. I love teaching my guitar skills to other guitar enthusiasts. It gives me great pleasure to share my musical knowledge to my students. My goal is to enlighten them with techniques that are easy and fun.

I enjoy working with Gil. I’m a beginner and he’s very patient as I start to learn how to play. The first time we met he gave me a song to play. It was a 3 chord song and gave me something to really aim for. I’ve almost got it down. Emily

Gil Olivera is a very patient and thorough guitar teacher. He can find your weaknesses right away, hone into them, and methodically construct a musical curriculum that will resolve your musical setbacks. I had the hardest time with strumming then Gil showed me a strumming technique, enabling me to finally play some rhythm. Thank you, Gil Olivera, for making me a better guitar player😊

I had my first lesson on zoom with Gil and he was amazing. Even though it was over video he Was very clear with his words also repeated things with me until I got it. I picked up on things very quick. Even showed me new things I didn’t even no. I had a lot of fun. Very nice teacher. Also His price is very reasonable.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I like to keep my price low so that I can have repeat business, and not overwhelm my students on my hourly charge due to our difficult economy. I want my students to feel comfortable about my price as well as my guitar lessons, it makes for a more relaxed and better learning process.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    To find out where they are in their level of guitar playing, then to tailor a guitar learning program that best fits their abilities. Also, I will ask them if there is any particular style that they would like to learn, or a song that they would like to learn to play, then I would work on getting them there.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Over 35 years of playing guitar, writing and composing songs. Two music degrees in music theory and guitar performance. Many appearances playing at clubs, parties, restaurants, hotels, open mic competitions, and just casual jamming with other musicians.
