Hi! My name is Maru Martinez, I’m a Guitar and Ukulele instructor. I’m from Montevideo, Uruguay where I began my music education at a young age. I received a BA in Film from DePaul University Chicago with a focus on music composition and sound mixing for film & television. I have 13 years experience playing, recording and performing on Guitar with an advancing education under Maurice Arenas Guitar Academy. I’ve performed live with various rock and metal bands, and performed on gear demos with companies such as Reverb.com, Positive Grid and Neural DSP. I’m currently an EMG Pickups endorsed artist.
I love sharing my passion for music with beginning and experienced students alike and helping them achieve their musical goals. I teach a wide range of music genres and styles ranging from rock & pop, to blues and metal with a strong background in songwriting and music production. I welcome students of all ages and musical backgrounds, and I also offer lessons in Spanish!
