My name is Sebastián Caldas and I love what I do: Learn, play and teach guitar. I´ve been doing this for the last 24 years and I will probably continue doing it for the rest of my life.
When it comes to teaching I always try to give my students the elements to advance towards their own goals, adapting the grade of discipline required for their purposes. I consider myself organized and engaged with what I do and It´s for me a great pleasure to see how my students advance.
I love to live and feel music, which is a feeling I hope I transmit in my concerts. I see my guitar as an extension of myself, a part of me.
