Biography

I’m a cuatro player from Venezuela. I was born in Caracas and started playing the cuatro since 6 years old.  My dad was my first teacher, and later I would be learning my first chords at school.    When I was 15 I decided to learn a few solo instrumental songs, so I dedicated about 9 months to the first one “Sin Rencor”, just to have it ready for the Gaita season in December.   It was a huge success and I got to play it for my school Gaita music group in front of everybody!

Later I would receive cuatro lessons with Luis Pino and Jorge Glem to become formally an instrumental cuatro player.  I got to teach cuatro at Centro Cultural Chacao and Centro de Capacitación Musical Teresa Carreño and later, in 2011, I decided it was time to create a website where people could go to learn how to play the cuatro,  I decided to call it TuCuatro.

Since 2012 I’m living Ottawa, Canada from where I keep organizing all TuCuatro teachers, luthiers and associates and keep aiming to create the world’s biggest interactive cuatro guide ever done.
