My students vary in age, skill and commitment to their art. One thing they seem to share in common is their will to overcome limitations and expand on their creativity.
Pilo is a great teacher. He is friendly, patient and encouraging, which are the essential qualities of a good teacher. He is also a talented guitarist, percussionist and singer, and I have no hesitation in recommending him.
I have found Pilo to be an excellent teacher. He is patient and considerate, and able to quickly understand his student's requirements, thus providing perfectly tailored teaching. I would highly recommend him to anyone wishing to learn guitars or percussion.
