Tomas Calarco (Argentina):

Great classes with a ton of material and all the necessary information to audition for and survive future jobs aboard!

Juan Ignacio Vazquez (Argentina):

These classes were essential in order for me to be working as part of an orchestra on Princess Cruises today. It’s a job that requires a diverse palette of information and a wide array of knowledge. Pablo is super-practical and organized in his teaching style; he knows exactly what you need and how to help you to achieve it. Thanks to his classes, I was able to prepare myself much more quickly than I could have done on my own, and I arrived at the ship knowing exactly how to do my job. Every time I have to read a new chart I remember his tips and his advice. Thank you Pablo!!

Lucian Langorta (Uruguay):

After many months of online classes, I can say that my experience was more than positive and I could not be happier. From the moment that I made the decision to try and work as a cruise ship musician (already having worked as a guitarist for 10 years without any formal academic study), I understood the importance of finding a teacher with experience in the field -- someone that could quickly identify what I needed to work on and the knowledge that I needed to gain. Thanks to these classes, I have been able to focus my studies in the most effective way, improving my technique, comprehension, musical appreciation, as well as learning basic concepts of the diverse genres that a cruise ship musician needs to know. It’s also worth mentioning Pablo’s friendly demeanor, kindness and adaptability. His experience as a teacher allows him to adjust the classes to each student’s needs.
