Hola a todos. Bueno quisiera decir lo gran profesor que considero a Javier Gonzalez. Pero también bien su gran humanidad como persona y el gran respeto hacia sus alumnos y la alegría que contamina al los demas. Infatigable y comprometido. Un superprofesor
Javier is a fantastic Cello Teacher. He is really skilled at explaining thing really clearly. He is infinitely patient, kind and has a great sense of humour. He is also one of the most sincere people I know. He always takes time to listen to and answer your questions. He is a wonderful player too which is inspiring.
