Chicago Classical Guitarist 1

This Chicago Classical Guitarist provides live instrumental background music for parties, banquets, weddings, restaurants, or any special gathering that calls for a lively and elegant ambience.

He has been performing professionally in and around Chicagoland as a soloist since 2004. His repertoire includes a savory mix of Latin American folk and popular styles, and classical guitar music of Spanish and Latin American origin.

Chicago Classical Guitarist background

This Chicago Classical Guitarist's background as a classical guitarist is quite unique. Rather than being a product of a music school, he has apprenticed privately with the Chilean master guitarist Alfonso Chacon since 2001, and I also perform in his quartet.

Through his studies and travels, he has fostered a great love of Latin American guitar music and, as a “North American,” he embraces the challenge of interpreting this work with passion and humility.

Chicago Classical Guitarist mission

This Chicago Classical Guitarist considers it my mission is to bring these styles to new audiences and hopefully pass on these songs and techniques to the next generation of guitarists.

He hopes to provide your event with a warm and inviting atmosphere — a welcome spark to conversation, a fine compliment to food and wine, and a raising of the spirits.

    Hiring [this guitarist] to play at our outdoor wedding ceremony was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! On just a very short notice, [he] was very accommodating, knew exactly what style of ambiance we were looking for our ceremony and was willing to aid us through the process of choosing music. … His music was pure, uplifting, romantic and inspirational. After the ceremony, all of our guests made a point to comment on how beautiful the music truly was. With no hesitation at all, we wouldn’t think twice about hiring [this artist] again. We recommend him to everyone looking for that special scenery music! – Jake and Jen Meyer

    Our wedding planner recommended [this guitarist] and we are so thankful that she did. Trying to find a musician for one of the most special moments in your life is not necessarily an easy task, but from the moment we met, [his] professionalism and most importantly, his personal touch were evident. [He] listened to our vision, observed us as a couple and then helped us craft the perfect musical selection. What impressed me most about [him] was his willingness to not only meet with us in person to provide a demonstration, but to also keep in constant communication until we finalized all of the small details. In addition to his elegant musical style and skill, [he] is first and foremost a normal guy (with phenomenal talent) that anyone can identify with and this made working with him an absolute pleasure. We should also mention the numerous compliments we received from our guests on the unique selection we chose and his amazing skill! We recommend [him] to anyone looking for a talented, cool and professional musician and hope to use him again in the future! – Duane and Renee Jackson

    We hired [this guitarist] for our May 10, 2008 wedding in Chicago. [He] was a pleasure to work with from the time we chose to have him play for our ceremony and cocktail hour to the day of our wedding. Prior to our first meeting a few months before our wedding, [he] sent us a CD so that we could get a sense of his style. He also committed to learning a few songs that were important to incorporate into our wedding ceremony. When we first met [him], we knew we had a great fit. [He] came to our condo and played his music for us for a while and even showed us the songs that he was learning for our special day. We were very impressed with his talent, punctuality and attitude. He was the right mix of easy going and focused on making sure the music was exactly what we wanted for our special day. On our wedding day, [he] arrived with plenty of time to set up and get a feel of the location and played beautiful music during our ceremony. Although I wasn’t really present during our cocktail hour due to pictures, we heard from our guests that his music was beautiful and festive but not too loud. We wanted to make sure that our guests could talk and that his music was in the background. He delivered on this. – Sara Schulte
