ABOUT ADRIÁN MOLINA
I’m a multidisciplinary musician specializing in classical guitar, jazz, improvisation, and teaching. As a guitarist and composer I’ve developed my own style that brings together the influences that have inspired me into one unique voice. My style combines musical expressiveness, a rich sound, the autonomy of the classical guitar as a solo instrument, virtuosity, and the contemporary musical aesthetics that accompany jazz.
As a teacher, I use a modern and personalized methodology that dismantles widespread (and incorrect) beliefs such as "I'm too old", "I'm not good at music", and "I have no ear". I believe that everybody, regardless of their background and abilities, is capable of learning music and, most importantly, of communicating artistically through it.
