Guitar, Piano & Brass

Guitar, Piano & Brass

Valentino is not your typical music teacher and not your typical musician playing guitar, piano and the brass instruments.

 

Raised in the Dominican Republic, Valentino Martinez started learning how to play the tuba starting in the sixth grade. He fell in love with music, especially jazz, and begged his mom daily in the seventh grade for eight months to buy him a piano until she had enough. Self-taught, Valentino proceeded to play jazz all throughout high school switching from piano to trombone whenever needed. Due to his passion for rock and roll, he took up guitar in his freshman year of high school and hasn’t looked back since. 

 

Now he attends the University of Central Florida majoring in video game design and minoring in music, while at the same time working as a solo rock musician.
