12.02.10I find myself always learning new things By Jig
I have been taking guitar lessons with Leo since April of 2009 until present. He has provided structure to my learning experience with the guitar. Leo pushed me to me improve myself constantly without pushing me too far, encouraged me to learn the music that I want to learn. Leo is constantly exposing me to new music and and by doing this I find myself always learning new things. I would definitely recommend Leo as a teacher. He is excellent with the guitar and other instruments, he has a solid lesson plan, he is patient and understanding and provides the right amount of encouragement where you see results all the time.Music is very important to me. It provides a release from everyday events and provides a new dimension to my lifestyle.
12.01.10We would always laugh at least 3 times in one lesson By Maria T.
I learned to play the guitar thanks to Leo. I took lessons with him for 5 years. He helped me compose my first song and always challenged me with new chords and rhythms. He opened up my music tastes by introducing me to new genres of music and artists I would not have heard of otherwise. Leo is great. He is always happy and energetic about teaching and is super passionate about music. He is open-minded and welcoming to new genres, songs and artists. We would always laugh at least 3 times in one lesson, which made it really fun. Music is very important in my life. I sing everyday. Music is how I express myself and let all of my troubles and worries out of me. Leo helped me improve my guitar playing skills and taught me how to play some of my favorite songs! Thank you for everything Leo!!!

I took guitar lessons with Leo for over 2 years. He Kept me focused, gave me great guidance. He taught me the fundamentals to basically be able to play any song as long as I have the chords. I would you recommend Leo as a teacher because he has the passion for music and teaching that makes him very effective. I enjoy listening, dancing, and now playing music.
05.07.01Leo helped me to conquer my stage fright By Jonathan O.
Before i took lessons with Leo i was unable to perform even for my closest friends without, breaking down or pausing due to my nervousness. Through his lessons and guidance i adquired the confidence to do very solid performances even in front of larger crowds. He was very patient and encouraging. I also learned to be disciplined when it comes to practicing a song until i master before moving on.
