Professional profile

Originally from Havana, Cuba, Luisa Sánchez de Fuentes obtained doctorates in philosophy and pedagogy from Havana University, and professor of music degrees in classical guitar, piano and composition from The International Conservatory of Music. 

She was the youngest person to graduate in classical guitar and composition in Cuba for which she received two gold medals from the Ministry of Education of Cuba, and was the youngest person to hold a chair in the National Conservatory of Music. At age 19, she was offered the classical guitar teaching position at that conservatory.

At 17, Dr. Fuentes performed as soloist with the Havana Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Alberto Fajardo. She has performed widely in the United States, including two programs for PBS TV Channel 2 of Miami and a series of five yearly classical guitar showcase programs for Miami Channel 7.

She initiated the classical guitar program at Florida Atlantic University where she taught for several years, as well as Broward Community College and her own Spanish Academy of the Guitar. Presently she is director of the Lynn University Preparatory School of Music.
