“The classical guitar is like a small orchestra with many different colors and voices which sing beautiful poetry to fill the hearts of its audience; with every note released into the universe, it gives it life and soul. Music is more than just a career path to me, it is my lifestyle. I aspire to share the beauty of the guitar with the world and if in the process I touch someone or make a difference, I will have fulfilled my purpose. It is every member in the audience which inspires me to become the best musician I can be. “– Wilson Gomez
