Born in 1989, Juan Antonio grew up in Puerto Rico and has been playing guitar since the age of twelve. While his early influences were rock and blues musicians, he started to lean towards jazz and experimental music during his late teen years.
As soon as he finished high school he enrolled at Musicians Institute in Los Angeles where he studied with various guitarists such as Alex Machacek, Greg Howe and Scott Henderson. Here a whole new world of exploration was opened and he jumped in head first into the world of fusion and experimental music.
He currently resides in Puerto Rico where he works as a professor of guitar at the Conservatorio de Artes del Caribe(Conservatory of Arts in the Carribean)also known as CAC which is the only music school in the Caribbean that is part of the Berklee International Network.
