  • I would recommend this business

My son has been taking lessons all year with Carlos. Not only is he very affordable but knowledgeable and great with my son. No music experience is needed as a student, he takes them well on their way in learning the instrument. As a parent, it is very comforting to deal with such a professional teacher who clearly has his student's best interest in mind.

Customer Testimonials

My daughters have been taking piano and guitar lessons for several years with Carlos. He is an excellent teacher and friend to my kids. I also began taking guitar lessons with Carlos. I would recommend him to everyone.

Mr. Aguilar is an excellent teacher. He has been giving myself and my child lessons in piano and guitar for years. We highly recommend Carlos. He is very kind and patient person as well as a musical genius.

Carlos is an extremely patient teacher with a wealth of music knowledge. He stays booked, but exhibits flexibility with scheduling. My daughter and I both take lessons from him. He is interesting and provides music theory, not just mechanics of playing an instrument.

I couldn't say enough kind things about Carlos.... my son has been taking guitar lessons for over a year and during this time, Carlos has become like family. This incredibly intelligent and talented man is a retired music teacher who plays a variety of instruments with ease. He puts twists on old songs making it funny for the kids (and to me, quite frankly) and composes original pieces as well. He's truly an artist. He works with your schedule and is extremely reasonable with his price. I highly encourage you to check him out! :)
