See what past students and parents have said about the Zuniga School of Music.


Having recently relocated to Houston, TX, I was very concerned about my son feeling like he belonged or was a part of some activity here. He had previously taken guitar classes and had lukewarm feelings about continuing it here in Texas.
As a parent, I know sometimes it takes just that special instructor to get the child totally motivated. When I saw the flyer for Zuniga School of Music and called Max, I was excited to have my son meet him. The relationship has opened my son up to a more creative learning style. The instructor / student role focuses on the critical early learning key elements but also shows the relationship of knowledge and respect that Max has for all students. Being able to teach to any age is a unique quality. I think Max is bringing about an artistic side of my son they may
have otherwise been lost. We are both happy we found the Zuniga School of Music.

My daughter loves to go to “music school.” She has been blessed with an awesome guitar instructor who understands her challenges and helps her learn while keeping the lessons fun enough to entice a 9 year old. She has learned so much in just a few months and it has been wonderful seeing her progress. A few months ago, her birthday wish was to learn how to play a guitar. Words cannot express the thanks that we have for Zuniga School of Music for helping make her dream come true.

Max is a phenomenal musician and a great teacher. I have been taking lessons from him for almost four months now and I would recommend him to anyone that wants to begin or develop their guitar skills. He is very professional and passionate about teaching classical guitar. I started out not knowing anything about guitars, but Max was able to guide me through the basics and has helped me work on my musicianship. Not only does he teach you how to play notes, he teaches you how to make your guitar sing. Max’s lessons are fun and makes you excited about playing music!

I began taking classes from Magdiel two months ago and I’ve been able to see myself progress rapidly in a short period of time. Magdiel is an exceptional teacher with a wide range of knowledge and a tremendous passion for music. I really admire the dedication he gives to all his students and the professionalism he demonstrates. I’m more than overjoyed to have joined the Zuniga School of Music!

Excellent music teacher whom is both personable and technically skilled
— Lindsey Meadows, CEO of Meadows Resources 2/17/2017
Magdiel is the best guitar instructor and player in this area. He understands exactly how different people learn using different methods. I really like the fact that he cares for his students and wants to see them succeed and get better at playing guitar. He is also very professional and takes the time to make sure you leave happy and eager to keep pushing forward and becoming better at playing the guitar. I would recommend him to anyone, young or elder.

Great teacher!!! My son started lessons at the end of last year and he’s not only learning to play the guitar but he’s learning music. He had a recital and I was impressed by the students that performed including my son

Our family was first introduced to Mr. Zuniga through the persistence of our son to study under him. Our son had the opportunity to see him perform at his school, and once we ourselves met Mr. Zuniga, we were certain that he would be an excellent instructor for not just our son but our two daughters as well. Our experience with him has been nothing short of phenomenal judging from the progress our children have made since they started not very long ago. Mr. Zuniga has consistently demonstrated a level of professionalism, skill, and maturity that is not expected from a musician so young. Our children are very fortunate to be able to study under his guidance and call him their teacher.

My daughter is truly enjoying her guitar lessons. Magdiel is very professional, kind, and attentive.

You won’t find someone as helpful and patient as Max. I’ve been taking lessons with him since February and I can honestly say he’s shown me so much about guitar as a whole. I’d recommend Max to anyone who is looking to improve or begin their guitar skills, he’s a fantastic musician and continues to make me more and more excited about making music!

For the past 4 years I’ve been trying to learn guitar on my own with self-teach books and videos but was not very happy with the progress (or lack of), so when my younger son saw Magdiel perform at his school and told me he wanted to learn how to play like him I was happy that he was interested on the guitar, so we joined. After just a few months we’ve made so much progress that even my oldest son joined us in the lessons and now we all 3 are learning and having so much fun practicing at home. The teacher is great with kids and has methods that simplify the learning process for any beginner.
We’re extremely happy to have joined his school and I would recommend to anybody looking to learn this beautiful instrument.
Thank you Magdiel for all your help and your patience, We truly appreciate it!

Magdiel Zuniga is by far one of the best teachers I’ve met. I have a musical background and have studied with top music teachers... Magdiel’s ability to teach classical guitar to young children, regardless of their starting level and keep them excited about learning and coming back week after week is quite remarkable. Different style of teaching from other teachers we’ve taken our son to, but he is the real deal! We highly recommend him!!!

My daughter loves Magdiel; she is 14 and he has a great report with her. I find him to be very encourageable, inspiring, and patient. She and I are impressed with his classical guitar playing, and wealth of knowledge. I like the fact that Mag is teaching her to read sheet music, not just hand written tabs. He has asked her to work with a metronome which I feel shows a greater level of quality to teaching that we didn’t experience with her past two teachers. Siena is learning to play with and without a pick. And Magdiel can sing; something I would like my daughter to learn with her guitar experience.
Another nice aspect to our lessons with Zuniga School of Music is the great environment. I love the office space, and enjoy having the opportunity to sit in on the lesson and hear the music.
We highly recommend lessons with Magdiel, he takes pride in his music and in his environment, and it shows.
