Guitar & Violin Teacher
Antonio Astroza is a talented musician and educator hailing from Cinco Saltos, Rio Negro. Antonio’s creative and educational formation began at an early age when he learned to play the guitar with his father. Today, he still plays this beloved instrument. As an adult, Antonio pursued formal music education at a music school while also exploring folkloric dance. His passion for dance led him to perform in various South American countries like Chile and Colombia.
In the midst of the pandemic, Antonio delved into learning to play the violin through self-study and by taking lessons with accomplished violinists. This is Antonio’s second time working with the PFC Patagonia music program. He initially met program coordinator David Galdame in 2017, where he was invited to teach a folkloric dance workshop for people with disabilities. Today, Antonio is a proud and skilled violin teacher with the program.
Antonio strongly believes that music is a fundamental part of our social being, allowing us to express our emotions and connect with others. Being able to create music, whether it’s singing, dancing, or playing an instrument, is a powerful tool that everyone can access through the PFC Patagonia music program.
Antonio’s dedication to his craft and his passion for music education has made him a respected and admired member of the community. His love for music and his desire to share his knowledge and skills with others will continue to inspire and uplift those around him.
