“"Juan is a great teacher that is devoted to music and making sure the student feels confident in their abilities. I've had him ad a teacher for 6 years and through those years there wasn't a challenge that he couldn't help me overcome. He is skilled in a variety of wind instruments such as clarinet, saxophone, and flute. When teaching, he also helps you learn what you want to learn, if he doesn't have a piece that you want to play, he will write it out for you. I couldn't have asked for a better private teacher!" ”
