Since picking up his oldest sister’s guitar at the age of 11, Andrés Diaz has immersed himself in mastering various styles of guitar. Drawing from an early love of classical guitar, he studied privately for several years before branching out to embrace folk, rock and pop styles of guitar as well. Andrés briefly studied guitar performance at the University of Texas Austin and holds a Masters in Psychology from the University of Colorado Denver. Andrés has a friendly and encouraging teaching style and enjoys working with students of all skill levels and is particularly adept at motivating beginner students.
Andrés is currently the front man for the Denver band Montropo. He enjoys writing, performing and recording his music and has been well received in the local music scene. Montropo was recently nominated for best folk band by The Denver Westword and played in the Westword Music Showcase and Underground Music Showcase this summer (2017).
