As a musician who has conquered a wide range of musical instruments and has taught students from beginner to advanced, young to older, Guillermo has the versatility and the determination to instil the most quality and enriching tutoring for every pupil's needs. He has experience working and teaching: Clarinet, Flute, Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, and French Horn. Guillermo has been maintaining a private studio of his own pupils since 2013, and is also recently working with another music teaching service teaching the multiple instruments listed above. He is fully enhanced DBS certified from the Southbank Sinfonia, whom he has been a fellow with for the last two years, and has the knowledge to provide the utmost care in safeguarding with children. He promises to provide the best services possible for all of his pupils.
A normal first lesson would depend on the pupil's level at that moment. For beginners Guillermo loves to take things easy while at the same time trying to get them making their first sound by the time they walk out the door. For advanced pupils, it would be a matter of hearing what they sound like by asking them to prepare a short piece of music for him, and then trying to help them achieve the best possible sound they can make. Guillermo likes to make individual road maps for each of his students because he believes everyone's stories and backgrounds are all so different, and that what's makes everyone who they are. All pupils will come out being determined, mastering the fundamentals, and inspired to use their creativity to move forward in their lives.
