Meet Luis Solares!
Lesson Program Director
Luis graduated from Harper College with his AFA Fine Arts degree and earned his Bachelor of Music degree from Elmhurst College. He studied under Steven Suvada, Peter Aglinskas, and Chris Siebold. Luis was the student organizer of the 2003 Mid America Guitar Ensemble festival. He has experience in many different styles, including pop/rock, blues, jazz, latin, and classical. Luis is a talented songwriter, and has performed his original music throughout Chicagoland, Guatemala, and Spain, most recently at an international music festival in Spain. He believes that students should have a good overall knowledge of their instrument, and that will help them be better able to improvise and create whatever type of music they like. He enjoys working with students of all ages and levels. He recently worked with Noble College Prep to start a guitar program for their students.
