Classical Guitar:
A member of the guitar family used in classical and flamengo music, but many popular artists play it for it's warm sound and ease of playing. It is an acoustical wooden guitar with strings made of nylon, rather than the metal strings used in acoustic and electric guitars. The traditional classical guitar has twelve frets clear of the body and is held on the left leg, so that the hand that plucks or strums the strings does so near the back of the sound hole. The modern steel string guitar, on the other hand, usually has fourteen frets clear of the body and is commonly played off the hip. I always start with the basics of finger techniques, learning notes and chords, how to read, theory and soloing. Right away the student will begin to play songs. This guitar can be used for most styles of guitar playing.

About Karen

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

Most times we miss the ultimate goal of learning, which is to master how to do it yourself. Hi, I am Victor and i have been teaching the guitar for over 20 years even before i graduated from Berklee college of music. I teach all popular styles of guitar playing and i also teach you how to master the habit of figuring things out by yourself because i believe that is the ultimate goal of learning.

About Victor

I am a professional guitarist, songwriter, and recording artist and music producer. I have toured around the world and shared the stage with a lot of popular artists. I graduated from Berklee college of music with a degree in Music production and audio engineering and electives on acoustic guitar.

"I've been working with Francesca for a few months now, and I feel I've grown so much. Prior to this I've sparsely attempted to play instruments, but she has taken her knowledge and passion and been able to pass that on to me while constantly reminding me that one day I will be good. And I believe it! I've come a long way to establish a regular practice routine, still working on it with her, and I have high expectations for the future. I recommend her to my own people and I recommend her to you."
