Mauricio Rodriguez

Master in Music Performance with more than thirty years experience teaching from elementary to superior education. English and Spanish
Teaching Philosophy

Hard work, discipline, commitment, criticism and frustration are among the words
commonly used to characterize the process involved in the study of music. However, no
one chooses to study and practice music to go through this process. Our first interest
comes by inspiration, and the wants to learn to play music with enjoyment. My goal as a teacher is to provide my students with enough motivation to enjoy the learning process at the same time they are playing and creating music, while still believing in their dreams.
