Carlos Andrés Caicedo

Classical & Latin Guitar

Carlos specializes in classical guitar, flamenco, Latin, and acoustic guitar. He has more than fifteen years of experience teaching all ages as well as abilities, having taught individual lessons, elementary and high school music classes, college-level students, and for several music schools. His expertise covers a diverse range of styles, from classical repertoire to Spanish-style, flamenco, Latin rhythms, and bossa nova to folk, rock, pop and beyond. His dedicated and personalized approach inspires, engages, and supports his students.

Carlos has a postgraduate degree in flamenco guitar from Liceu Conservatory in Barcelona, Spain and a degree in Classical Guitar Interpretation from Javeriana University in Bogota, Colombia. In 2008, Carlos won a prized scholarship to study flamenco guitar in Barcelona. In 2012, he was selected to play flamenco guitar with the Colombia Symphony Orchestra for a contemporary Opera. Carlos has performed as a soloist, as well as in duets and ensembles in Spain, Colombia, California, and Seattle.

Being from Latin America, Carlos has a unique approach to guitar, one that reflects the rich heritage of playing nylon string guitar, and of using the instrument to play music ranging from Bach to Led Zeppelin to rumba. Through every lesson and interaction, Carlos strives to break down the wall of what people perceive nylon guitar to be. He brings creativity, exploration and improvisation to each lesson, while at the same time covering the technique and details necessary to help develop a well-rounded musician. Whether you’re a lover of nylon guitar or you’re looking to expand your classical repertoire, Carlos has the experience, technique, and patience to help you achieve your goals
