I just spent two weeks (July 2016) studying guitar with Havana Music School. I had a fantastic teacher and player who challenged me to work harder every day. We worked on some traditional Cuban music and then started into modern Cuban jazz. I would go back just to learn more. That said, the team at the school was a major asset from Miguel helping with everything from transportation to where to stay and Adalberto giving me a tour of old Havana. It was a very supportive school and rewarding experience.

We had an amazing three weeks studying at the Havana Music School. Our teachers were amazing, and Miguel and Adalberto were endlessly helpful and flexible. I highly recommend the school to anyone interested in Cuban music, and I hope to go back soon
