Get to know Braden Astorga-Rollins

Hi! My name is Braden Astorga-Rollins. I am a life-long musician and music lover. I started on piano when I was 4 and progressed to guitar and saxophone in my early teenage years. I was raised in the valley but moved to the Chicago area after high school to pursue music at Northern Illinois University and in the city. In Chicago I found my way into the jazz and afro-cuban music scenes, performing with various other musicians in the city as a gigging instrumentalist, composer, and singer. I have published recordings with groups like Salsa del Norte, Isla Tambor, and Epic XVIII; and have performed with many more. I listen to all different kinds of music in my off time but I especially love Salsa, Indie Rock, Punk, Jazz and Folk music.

I love teaching and have been doing it for more than 7 years! From beginner to expert, I am happy to build on a students current musical knowledge and roll with it. Hope to see you soon!
