I am originally from Columbia and a retired professor of guitar at La Universidad de Cauca in Colombia. I received his graduate and post graduate degrees in music and classical guitar at the Real Conservatorio de Madrid where I studied under Jose Luis Rodrigo. I was selected to participate in international guitar courses with Oscar Giglia, Jose Tomas, Jose Luis Gonzales. I have performed in solo concerts and with orchestras in Europe, Colombia and Ecuador. I recently moved to London to join my wife, and am teaching classical guitar and jazz and blues at all levels. I provide guitar instruction in English and in Spanish. I also do transcription for US jazz and blues guitarists.
Really enjoy classes with Jose. Apart from being a great teacher technically, he has a contagious enthusiasm and genuinely cares about teaching towards result.
Jose is a great tutor with lots of patience and ideas for helping me improve my technique. Really enjoyable lessons.
A very pleasant teacher with a strong emphasis on technique which I really need as I have some bad habits from when I was younger. I look forward to continuing.

Jose is great teacher, full of enthusiasm and passion for the guitar. He has been a great help to me working on my technique and introducing me to new stuff. Highly recommended.
Very happy, will have lessons on continuous basis
Jose is passionate and knowledgeable, and was able to explain the techniques with ease. He was able to be flexible with my lesson timetable (to accommodate me sometimes working late) and provides a relaxed environment to learn in. He is organised with lesson materials and keen to ensure progression
Jose is very strict. But he's a legend.
Jose has a really good method of teaching to play the guitar. His effective approach focuses on the important things and helps you progress very quickly. In just two months I have learnt the basic and I´m capable of playing some melodies.
Jose teaches my daughter guitar. He is very professional but also relaxed. She has learnt a lot in three lessons and enjoys his teaching. We are delighted!
