I started playing guitar when I was 14, was self taught until my 20’s when I started my guitar course at the GIT in Sao PAulo, where I’ve graduated before going to JAzz School at the Uni Fiaam Sao Paulo, Brazil.

I been teaching the guitar for over 20 years in Brazil, Dubai and New Zealand.

In Brazil and Dubai I worked as a performing musician and Guitar Tutor.

In Auckland I teach children at primary schools, several adults and teens in my private studio teaching, I teach in a nice and professional studio which provides the students with the right atmosphere for learning, you will be immersed in guitars, effects pedals and amplifiers, you will learn not only how to be a rounded guitarist but also how to be competent in choosing your gear to extract specific sounds and tones.

Having played guitar for over 10 years, i have cycled through many guitar tutors and not a single one is comparable to Felipe of Guitar City. Not only has he helped built my guitar skills professionally and enthusiastically, he has formed a lifelong relationship along with it. Couldn’t ask for more. Matt Shearer

Felipe has been teaching my son guitar for the last 7 years. He is an outstanding guitar teacher who, as well as having great technical knowledge and ability, has a really positive attitude. I can highly recommend Felipe.

Felipe is a really good teacher. He has heaps of energy, is passionate about teaching and is really encouraging. I always look forward to my lessons with him.

As a student with no previous musical experience I was delighted after a few lessons to be able to attempt to play such well known songs as “Day tripper” and “Bye Bye love” on an acoustic guitar. Felipe’s strategy included music sheets with notes but more importantly, due to my total lack of musical experience, comparative finger position on frets and strings, something I could understand better.
