Antonio Joaquin Arizaga has had a long and illustrious career as a performer, recording artist and music educator. Maestro Arizaga's mastery of the Spanish Guitar indicates devotion and respect for this art form, which dates back centuries. His live concert repertoire includes dramatic and brilliantly executed performances of Spanish guitar pieces as well as expressive arrangements and extraordinary performances of popular adult contemporary selections. After attending California Institute of the Arts, Arizaga went on to play master classes with George Sakellario, Julian Bream, Pepe and Angel Romero, and flamenco guitarist Mario Escudero. He also studied privately with Pepe Romero of Los Romeros - "Royal Family of the Guitar." He has a reputation as an inspiring teacher and is an avid musical scholar. In solo performance, Arizaga has achieved the resonant and lyrical touch that coaxes from the guitar an authentic and breathtaking sound. Dazzling execution of challenging fingerwork graces every song in his repertoire. The range of nuance he elicits from the guitar demonstrates virtuosic technique and intuitive insight into the spirit of the music that is truly breath taking to experience.About the Author:
Anthony Arizaga began playing guitar at age 9. He spent much time with his grandmother, who owned a restaurant/bar on the waterfront in San Pedro, where he would hear various performers. At age 15, he began to study the standard classical guitar repertoire and to compose his own works. He was accepted into the California Institute of the Arts at age 17. Soon he was playing master classes with George Sakellario, Julian Bream, Pepe and Angel Romero, and flamenco guitarist Mario Escudero. During this time he began to study privately with a number of teachers including Jack Sanders and Stewart Fox at the California Institute of the Arts, Gunnar Eisel at Citrus College, and after playing a master class for Pepe Romero (of Los Romeros-Royal Family of the Guitar), he began studying privately with Mister Romero in his home in Del Mar, California. In addition to his studies with Mr. Romero, he studied with two of Mr. Romero's long time students - Jonathan Marcus and William Kanengiser. In 1989 he began accompanying the Flamenco dance company Village Dance Arts, in Claremont, California. He learned more about flamenco guitar from the class' former accompanist, Tony Triana. Anthony has studied the music of Ni–o Ricardo, Ramon Montoya, Paco Pena, Juan Serrano, Sabicas, Pepe Romero, Juan Martin and others. Today Anthony teaches at College of the Desert in Palm Desert, California, and performs an average of 200 times a year internationally. Anthony Arizaga has matured into a well rounded and seasoned performer who never fails to leave an audience astonished at what one man and one guitar can do.
