Being a Suzuki parent, Gustavo Carpinteyro-Lara knows that patience, love and dedication to his own son, are the best way to nurture him. As a teacher, he believes that any student has a high level of learning potential; however it is the responsibility of a teacher to guide and help every student to pursue and achieve his/her goals no matter how small or big they are. His teaching focus on making student the best cellist can be, and guide the student to the most comfortable, intelligent and balanced way to master skills. Teacher and student should work together and the teacher will help the student understand how cello playing works through a combination of cello technique, the student’s physical abilities, the laws of physics and gravity; and music itself.
