Spanish guitar music.
My company name really emphasizes my specialty: Spanish classical and flamenco guitar music.
I have excellent communication skills, I am attentive to the needs of my clients, I am personable, I play BOTH classical and flamenco music, and I am a great guitar player!
One thing that differentiates me from others is that I can play classical music for the ceremony and upbeat flamenco music for the reception. I think this is one of the main reasons people hire me.
I got started with Spanish guitar music because it is embedded in the cultural traditions of the area I grew up in (New Mexico).
My sources of inspiration are the great masters of flamenco guitar: Paco de Lucia, Gerardo Nuñez, Vicente Amigo, and Tomatito.
When the bride and groom write their own vows and reveal their deepest feelings about themselves and each other in front of their friends, families, and loved ones.
Weddings have taught me to be attentive and to adjust to whatever the circumstances might be.
The best advice I can give a couple is to visualize the ceremony in real time for continuity and logistics: who does what, and when and where it happens.
To get everyone to relax!
I am easygoing!
I enjoy books written by Isabel Allende.
Have compassion, empathy, and patience.
