Guitarist Marcelo Berestovoy
Marcelo Berestovoy is an independent artist, musician, and music educator with a rich musical history that includes a long list of recording credits, international touring and writing with some of the biggest names in Latin music and Hollywood films.
Born and raised in Argentina, Marcelo was exposed to different styles of music from an early age and started with the guitar at age 11, becoming a full time music student by the age of 15 in Buenos Aires where he started performing and teaching before moving to Los Angeles to further his music studies.
Marcelo was a teacher at Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA for 11 years, has published numerous articles (in English and Spanish) in some of the major music publications and is
currently living in Dallas Texas where he performs regularly leading his band.
His masterful recordings Azulejos and Música Clásica are available on CDBaby, and he is available for live shows (including house concerts), recording sessions and guitar lessons in person and online.
I have known Marcelo Berestovoy for 18 years, first as a fellow student at GIT in 1985; then later as a member of the GIT teaching staff. Marcelo possesses the wonderful combination of tremendous technique skill; the heart and soul of a real musical artist, a successful performing career, and the dedicated patience of a fine teacher. The GIT students enjoy that he brings his vast knowledge of Rhumba and Latin Styles into their world. He's a great player, and it's my privilege to have him as a member of the GIT staff.
