Verified review

I am seeing Alvaro for guitar lessons. I've been playing for many years, but never had the training or clear understanding of what I needed in order to achieve my goals. 2 lessons in with Alvaro, and he has determined my primary areas for growth and provided me with an achievable goal for each subsequent lesson. Alvaro is wonderful to work with, patient, and shows a genuine enthusiasm for what he does. I would highly recommend Alvaro to anyone looking to bolster their musicianship.
