About Mario

Mario is currently a student at Central Piedmont Community College studying with James Easteppe and Robert Teixeira.  He has also taken master classes with Mary Akerman and Adam Holzman.

Mario has also been a winner of the Charlotte Music Club Scholarship.  He has over 10 years of performing experience including performances for Cundinamarca State Government (Columbia) and Bogota D.C. City Hall.

Mario teaches beginners to advanced students of all ages.  He teaches all styles of guitar but is particularly well versed in rock and classical styles.  He uses Segovia's scales method and various techniques to develop speed and a clean guitar sound.

Mario believes that learning and practicing a musical instrument is not only enjoyable, but also provides a student with discipline that they can apply in other areas of life.  Mario loves seeing his students feel the sense of accomplishment that they get when they master a new song or technique.  As he says, "the student and the teacher both get a good feeling when they learn and accomplish things together."

Mario is fluent in Spanish.
