What students say:

“I started weekly guitar lessons with Nuno about a year ago and I recommend him without hesitation!

Besides being an amazing musician, he is an excellent guitar teacher, with whom I learn the theory and improve my technique. 5 stars!”



“I was looking for a Jazz Guitar teacher in Lisbon and some people advised me to call Nuno. What a good choice I made.

Nuno is an excellent musician and a very good person. He makes me improve at my own pace, thoroughly and patiently explaining me the music and the theory. I really progressed a lot with him.

He’s always in a good mood and has lots of advices to improve. He is never late and he is reachable to talk outside classes. I am very happy to meet Nuno and to start building a friendship with him. My advice, just contact him blindly and take care of him because you wont find such a good teacher.”
