A bit about myself:
Hi! My name is Cristóbal, and I'm a classical guitarist from Argentina. I love cultural blends and ethnic music. Check out my video of Koyunbaba IV on YT (it is an example of classical and ethnic music mix). I specialize in Classical Guitar, but I have studied other genres as well.
I love teaching what I love most: guitar! I have a lot of patience (a must for any teacher!). I also believe that listening carefully to my student's likes and needs is key. It might sound obvious, but actually, it's not!
Since I have a classical background, I also coach and teach and prepare, beginners and advanced students for exams in various musical institutions. I also teach music from my country (Tango/Folklore) and Flamenco Guitar as well.

I have an organized and progressive teaching method, but I am not into prefabricated, over-structured classes. The teaching style really depends on the goals and motivations of the student. I provide an array of guitar materials, books, and scores in PDF. Total beginners or advanced, and experienced players are welcome alike. I also usually write notes after each lesson to summarize what to focus on for the following lesson; this helps keeping your practice well-organized and with clear objectives.
Guitar can be easy if you have the right attitude! Being a good listener, my love for the guitar, and lots of patience are the main assets I rely on for teaching. These lessons may also include custom-made short videos to help your practice. I have an academic and classical background, but I also teach Flamenco, Tango, Folklore, and other Latin American music styles as well.
