Passionate guitar teacher with over 15 years of experience

Hi, I am Pato.

I am a musician / producer with over 25 years of experience both onstage and in the studio. As founder and frontman of a successful indie band back in Mexico, I toured incessantly for over a decade, released 4 self-produced albums and played in front of tens of thousands.

I must confess I have a passion for education. In addition to teaching guitar privately for the past 15 years, I have taught media and new technology at university level, and English and Spanish as a foreign language to students of all ages and levels.

I love working with young aspiring musicians but I also enjoy teaching guitar as a fun activity to children and older students who do not seek a career in music but want to experience the joy of bending steel with their bare hands.

While I'm very happy teaching my students how to nail that classic rock solo or figure out the chord progression of a popular song, my aim is to help them find their own voice and style. I am a strong advocate of thinking outside the box, developing unusual tecniques once you've learned the basics, and making use of all tools available, including gadgets and technology.

I can also provide valuable and experience-backed advice on being part of a band, live gigging, life on the road, surviving the recording studio, and buying the right equipment for the kind of music you want to make.


Tutoring / Teaching Experience

I have taught guitar privately for over 15 years, working mainly with aspiring musicians.
I like to learn not just what kind of music they are interested in but also what they want to get from their instrument. I am convinced that fostering a relaxed and fun but goal-oriented style is the best way to get where you want to go.
As a musician I am fascinated not only by the technical aspects of playing the guitar but also by the infinite expressive and sound-creating possibilities it offers. I encourage my students to build a strong foundation and then push the envelope as much as they can.

Patricio was an excellent tutor, knowledgable in his field and well equipped for teaching even a beginner such as myself. We started the lesson with general questions about what I wanted to get out of our sessions and I feel my feedback was taken into account when the subject matter was prepared. Even though Patricio was clear about his aims and what he wanted to teach (given my level of familiarity with the subject) what I wanted to ultimately learn and my approach to it was taken into account. For example, a more formalised, almost mathematical approach to learning the basics of musical theory made the experience a lot more malleable to me, which in turn help my confidence in my ability to learn a new subject grow. I would definitely recommend Patricio to anyone who wants to learn more about music theory, playing the guitar or both. He was well equipped and having insight into his personal material (e.g. books on musical theory from his own collection) was not only helpful but insightful into how seriously he takes the matter.

Patricio is patient, hardworking and very reliable, able to explain things clearly and practically. As a tutor myself, I have no doubt that he will be a real asset to any agency.
