Get to know Fernando
Fernando started playing guitar in the early 2000s right before starting his formal music theory education at the Frederic Chopin Conservatory in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2002. His primary focus is on technique, music composition and improvisation. He enjoys playing all types of music, but his focus is primarily on writing and interpreting modern melodic, hard and classic rock, metal and blues on electric guitar. He also arranges and writes for other instruments such as drums, keyboard, bass and other strings. Fernando is a firm believer of the added value and insight that instructors must add to a student’s musical and guitar learning journey. He teaches his students to ‘learn how to learn’, so they can be able to further develop their skills and understanding by tackling pieces, studies and styles they love on their own while better leveraging his mentoring and instruction. Finally, he enjoys both recording and performing with bands live. He has experience setting up and managing live sound from scratch and is obsessed with good guitar gear that gets the job done consistently. He encourages and advises his students on how to, at the right time, set up a recording space at home for writing, practice and learning.
