Cristobal is an excellent teacher. He knows how to guide step by step. He is always punctual and prepared. I feel that he customizes lessons just for me. He very quickly identifies my problem areas and always seems to have a solution. I am a complete beginner at Classical guitar and sight reading music, but in the last few months of lessons with Cristobal i am already playing some beautiful pieces and feel confident that i have a path and teacher that can take me as far as i want. Many thanks.

Cristobal is an excellent teacher who listens and flexes to my needs as a student. He is quick to identify improvements and does a great job to make me understand the particularities of the different musical pieces from both a technical but also an artistic perspective. He is very polite, well prepared and speaks excellent English. I am confident that with his support I will be able to improve my playing and repertoire considerably!

It is always great. For me, the attention to detail and the differences which make a difference is very important.. This is about learning to play the guitar using songs and what superficially seems to be simple and easy exerices rather than just learning to play a song. The lessons are about the nuances to make a musical delight.

Reviewing progress throughout the year, I noticed extremely positive progression. The professor always has a positive comment and is conducive to allowing the student to progress. Very happy with my year in review.
