Player Spotlight: Glauber Rocha


Glauber Rocha is considered one of the great names among Brazilian guitarists. He began taking music lessons at the piano at the age of five. He moved on to the guitar when he had just turned 12, and studied with Prof. Aparecido Dias dos Santos. At 15, he met and had a short period of classes with the Brazilian composer and guitarist Mauricio Orosco.

Pepe Romero plays Hijos de Melchor Moya


We recently had a visit from Pepe Romero, who came to play and tell us about one of the rarest guitars we’ve ever seen – an 1894 Hijos de Melchor Moya. Moya was a contemporary of Antonio de Torres, and over the years he and his brother and sons worked with and learned much from Torres.
