Miguel is an eclectic musician with rarefied skills that range from the Classical to the Contemporary and span over four decades of musical expertise. Miguel started his training at 11 years old in a musical family in Monterrey, Mexico. At 13 years old, he entered the school of music in the State University of Nuevo Leon. Miguel gave his first professional concert at 16 years of age and, since then, has played all over the world and has been appreciated by all age groups and cultures.
“I've seen the great guitar players up close and in person: Santana, Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan... Miguel De Hoyos is among these greats...”
