Testimonials:

"Apart from being a great musician, teacher and person, what I admire and thank Carlos is the fact that he got me to fall in love with my instrument and could create a very special bond with music, which continues to grow.
I remember as a class he asked me if I wanted to be a musician, I do not remember exactly the answer I gave him at that time, but now that I am, I thank him for having a great weight in the courageous decision I made one day, the decision to dedicate myself 100% to this madness, to music. Thank you Carlos." – Guillermo Zárate

"Carlos is an ideal guitar teacher and a great person. In each class helps me to be focused and to move as much as possible, there are always tips on how to use the equipment. It really is the best option to take advantage of your money and you think to take guitar lessons." – Patricio Ugarte

"Carlos Morgado, besides being a top class guitarist, is the most responsible, involved and professional person as a guitar teacher that one can desire if want to advance with the instrument. From my person everything is praise to his enormous generosity as a musical teacher. A "must have" if you want to improve, regardless of your musical knowledge or instrument, with little that you are implied. 100% recommended." – Javier Sánchez

"I could say that I lack fingers to tell my blunders in life, both on a musical level and in other fields. I practically came to Carlos very disenchanted with the musical education, because I found other teachers without "mojo" that the people of neighborhood we usually smell from a distance.

I found in Carlos Morgado a person in love with his profession, with great power of transmission of that idea, with the knowledge of harmony that must be had to get out of any musical situation, with a clean and exciting performance, with that "mojo" which unfortunately not everyone has, and we also agree on a lot of musical tastes. I could not ask for more, it just bothered me a lot not to have met him before, lol. I would have saved half the blunders what I was talking about it." – Enrique Ampuero

I want to thank Carlos, because thanks to his classes, I feel privileged to have had a teacher like him. I am convinced that I learned very fast and reached my current level thanks to him. I still practice his techniques and review the exercises that he taught me, his explanations and the good music he instilled in me. Frankly, I consider it an example to follow completely, because it will always be my first guitar teacher, the one who guides you when you have in your hands that mystical, magical and impressive instrument that is the guitar, and I hope that it can always be a one of my friends and not lose contact with him.

I advise you to try several hours, to find out what I mean.

My experience with Carlos has been to have a teacher who knows how to teach and with whom you really learn if you love what you do. After 7 years, I still love what I do and with great enthusiasm, because it taught me to have music present every day. Thank you Carlos, for all your support and for what I have learned.

After losing years in some schools, I found Carlos, who had nothing to do with the previous teacher that I had. What I discovered was someone who, in my opinion, is invaluable as a teacher, friend and person.
Whether they are online or face-to-face classes, it sets an undoubtedly high standard, focusing on the student’s problems and helping him to continue with his musical growth, something he had not encountered until now in a teacher, incredible as it may seem.

In addition, it is remarkable the fact that Carlos has a base as an educator, unlike many who today give classes without even having an idea of ​​how the field of teaching works.
As for the content and quality of the classes, they stand out especially for their dynamism, at least in my case, usually follows a method of some renowned guitarist, while practicing some song, theory and quality exercises.

If you want to receive guitar lessons, do not even think about it.

I met Carlos at a time when as a guitarist he was stuck and because I did not say, stunned and confused. I did not move on and I got bored. Well, Carlos went out of his way to solve it with very entertaining, fun classes with a high level of requirement, besides giving flexibility of schedules something that for me is important. If you want to get the best of you as a guitar player I recommend you work with him. Personally I will tell you that it is the people who add and contribute to your person.

Great teacher and best person. Since we started our lessons, he has always been willing to see what I liked to play (it’s easy, we have very similar tastes) and he has tried to improve it, not only technically but also expressivity. I have learned a lot, but as we usually say: “We still have a lot ahead, because in this we never stop learning!

Exceptional guitar player and teacher with a very long history who knows how to really teach. If you are thinking about taking classes or doubting it, you will learn a lot.

I gave my husband two lessons with Carlos (via Skype – we live in Norway) to his birthday and now he is hooked.

He has a lesson every week, so instead of working around the clock, he now fills the evenings with hours of guitar playing.

Carlos is not only a gifted guitar player – he is also an excellent teacher. We all enjoy the progress our guitar hero is making.
