“I found Maví on Google, and it couldn’t have been any better! He is an excellent professional, I love the way he conducts his classes, as well as the way he explains things, his exercises, his availability. He is also extremely organized and polite…I feel very comfortable during the classes and I have been learning a lot!!”
“A lot of guitar instructors teach as if they’re running a familiar route, without sensitivity to the student’s understanding. Not Maví. This guy has an ear for understanding and how to broaden it.”
“Stimulating lessons of the highest musical quality. You choose the songs you want to learn and from the beginning you learn beautiful and complex chords. (…) I didn’t know anything about music and it was a revolution in my life!”
“He knows a lot about music and the conversations during the lessons reflect his acute knowledge on music theory and music history. He is also not concerned with speeding up my learning, respecting my time in each lesson. It’s a pleasure to have classes with him!”
