I'm Dan Garcia, and I'm a guitarist. I'm originally from Madrid, Spain. I've been in the US for about 20 years now, in New York City, since 1998. And I play guitar for a living. I have the privilege to wake up every day and be able to play and teach what I love the most, which is music and guitar playing. I've been playing music professionally for over 20 years. In New York, I do flamenco guitar. I also play classical guitar. Brazilian. A lot of different styles, but mostly flamenco guitar has always been my passion.

I played guitar when I was 10 years old in Madrid. Classical guitar. I switched to flamenco in my teens. I used to go to southern Madrid, to this gypsy's house. His wife was a singer. He was a guitarist. It was very magical. I would spend hours there with these guys, just playing and learning about flamenco.
