Hello! My name is Fernando Kairuz and I love complex rhythms and I love to rock. I teach guitar, ukulele, bass, drums and ensemble. I have been teaching for 10 years now and I like to focus on what the students want to learn and keep them engaged and hungry for more. I started playing music at age 10 in Buenos Aires, Argentina where I grew up. I enjoy leading band practice and teaching individuals at the RIOS Music Project because of the supportive and creative environment here.
