Guitar Tutor

Playing the guitar is a huge passion of mine and was my main extracurricular activity through high school. I played in a Jazz combo at Avondale college being awarded the highest awards at competitions.

This passion of the music led me to study at the University of Auckland, to further deepen my understanding of the guitar. However, being taught by Felipe I’m open to all genres of music, pop, Acoustic Fingerstyle, Rock, Metal, Blues, Jazz, classical and Fusion. My love of guitar has also translated into a love of teaching guitar.
