Daniel Avina

Daniel is a guitarist who grew up playing rock but was quickly attracted to the teaching styles of classical guitar through various teachers he had throughout middle and high school; so much so, that he became a classical performance major in undergrad at the University of Redlands in Southern California studying under Stuart Green. Alas, he was swept up to the bay area and has been playing with bands and continuing his education at SFSU in composition and guitar performance with expanded repertoire in blues, funk and jazz. Over the course of his career as a student (which he still is and always will be!) he has taken buffet style from those who taught him, all the methods and mottos with which he’s resonated and has in turn incorporated into the player he is today.
