My name is Carlos Rincon, and I am a guitar player, music producer, and educator. I have proven myself as one of the most versatile musicians of my generation. From classical music and jazz to hip-hop, I have enjoyed the freedom that comes with being a diverse musician.
I started playing the guitar at the age of 7 in my native Colombia. After two years of playing gigs with bands around the city, my family decided to move to Miami, where I found a new way of musical expression on the guitar, the Spanish Classical Guitar.
After some years of studying Classical, and being completely self taught, I auditioned at the University of Miami Conservatory of Music, and at the age of 14, I was a recipient of a full scholarship to attend the Conservatory. There, I studied with Classical Guitar Masters, Rafael Padron, Rene Gonzales, Gerardo Perez, and master clinician from Spain, Iliana Matos. All of which are considered to be among the best in the world.
During that time I performed in various guitar concerts, festivals, as well as competitions all over North and South America, always winning first place. And at the age of 16 I was a recipient of the World Scholarship Tour to attend Berklee College of Music. During my time at Berklee, I got hired by multiple local G.B Funk Bands in Boston, and began playing shows every week, sometimes three or four times a week.
The gigs I have performed range from private parties, to weddings, to community events, to music festivals in the east coast, New York City, Boston, and South Florida. Currently working as a full time music teacher in Las Vegas ,NV, I now teach students of all ages as well piano, guitar, drums, bass, and brass.
Working on music has always been a great passion of mine. Ever since the first time I was able to hold an instrument in my hands, and tried it, having no idea of what I was doing. Not knowing yet what it was, I knew it was something deeply special, and it intrigued me. This is what has led me to the field of music teaching, and thus why I am a music teacher. I have a notion that this helps me understand the miracle of music, and how to use it to help others in their everyday musical experience.
Throughout the course of my life, I have been part of numerous projects involving entertainment with the use of audio production. I have many things to offer as a fellow musician and teacher to anyone who might be in need of these skills. I am a Berklee graduate, where my experience as a professional session guitar player, producer, and teacher all got forged into my career path.
Whatever their goals—whether they want to learn to play an instrument like guitar or drums to express themselves, as a hobby, or even if they would like to play professionally, I am committed to helping students reach those goals.
