Juan is very knowledgeable and very patient when teaching. I have never touched a guitar before, so I didn’t think I was ever able to pick up a guitar and start playing, but Juan is making that come true. Just after having my third lesson with him, I have gather tons of information to start playing songs, which he will go over with you, so you can understand. It’s not all up to him for you to learn, you must do your part too and practice! Thank you, Juan!Mar 20, 2020VerifiedJG Music Lessons's reply
Thank you Ben!
WOW! I've been working with Juan for about 6 weeks and it has super charged my ability to play and read music. Having him as a coach and guide was the best choice in learning guitar. HIRE HIMOct 12, 2019VerifiedJG Music Lessons's reply
Thanks Ross! It’s been awesome seeing you progress so quickly! Great job!
So lucky we found this guitar teacher, my 12 years old just went nuts about him. He totally loved his technique, patience and he had a blast in his first class. Now all the family want to take classes with Juan. Looking forward for a season full of music and learning!!Nov 12, 2019VerifiedJG Music Lessons's reply
Thank you so much Lily! I'm looking forward to keep seeing your son make great progress!
Juan is helping my 13 year old transition from violin to guitar. My son is excited and engaged and thinks Juan is great. He’s been understanding, patient and professional, and I'm looking forward to seeing (and hearing) my son progress!Aug 14, 2019Verified

Thank you JG!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Lessons are paid per session as frequently as the student requests and can also be prepaid for the month.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When working with a new student, I want get to know what they are hoping to accomplish through the lessons so that I can best guide them in the process. I share with them some of my background and teaching methods so they can have a better idea of what to expect during lessons. We discuss these things during the first lesson and it gives me a better idea to create a suitable lesson plan for the student.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a B.A. in guitar performance. I have experience teaching at a music school, doing one-on-one lessons from my studio and also at student's homes. Having performed with several bands of different styles of music has really helped me to know how to prepare students for real live musical settings.
