    Took some lessons from Ruben and really enjoyed them! He takes the time to figure out your style, preferences and goals. He made it fun (learning songs I've always wanted to) as well as very informative with the different technique exercises. He's also very nice, patient and flexible. Highly recommended!

    I took lessons from Ruben for several months and found him to be highly competent guitar instructor with in-depth technique covering many different styles of music. Ruben proved to be an awesome teacher of Apple Logic Pro recording software as well. I am leaving the East Bay and will be miss our Saturday morning lessons! To summarize, Ruben is a skilled and engaging teacher; time and money well spent!

    This guy is great and he's a fantastic teacher. In 11 months he got my 8 year old and my 10 year old to the point where they are jamming all their favorite songs and actually performing in front of live audiences. Both of my kids love their Thursday nights with Ruben and have said many time that he is their favorite teacher ever. If you want to get your kids going on musical instruments, give him a call your kids will love him!
