This is how 3 referees rated Jorge:
Few acoustic guitarists in Europe can compose and play with such personality and technical skill as Jorge**Removed By Admin**. Born in Santiago de Chile in 1973 and based in UK since 2005, he works actively as a concert guitarist, composer, producer and teacher. He has a unique style of virtuoso performance which demonstrates a wide range of influences from classical and flamenco to gypsy jazz and Latin American styles.
Jorge has played in prestigious venues around the UK such as the Royal Albert Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Womad festival; and in some of the most renowned theatres and festivals throughout Europe.
In June 2006 his talents were internationally recognised when he won a first prize at the 'Nino Ricardo International Guitar Competition' held in Murcia, Spain.
Jorge is currently promoting and performing music from his third independent album 'Imposturas' with his band - which includes percussionist Demi Garcia, bassist Paolo Minervini, flamenco dancer Jesus Olmedo and jazz vocalist Emily Dankworth.
'I have 20 years' experience of teaching private students at all levels - in South America, Mexico and the UK'.
'I take students from 14-15 to 90 years old ;-) From complete beginners to advanced performers'.
'I believe in learning music for the love of it, rather than with an exam-based focus. The music I write and perform has a wide range of influences from its roots in Latin America and flamenco, to jazz and classical. I hope to inspire students to listen to, and play, a broad range of musical styles. I teach students to read music if that is what they prefer, but I like to make sure that my students don't become reliant on sheet music to play their instrument: it is important to be able to learn by listening too. I generally teach from my home in Hertfordshire; prices for lessons where you live are available on request.
