Antoine Guerrero – France

Born in 1996, Antoine Guerrero started his studies in classical guitar at the age of 8 with Argentinian guitarist Rodolfo Lahoz. At the same time, he also developed a strong passion for flamenco guitar, a style which has played an important role in his musical growth. However, later on he would finally choose to dedicate himself entirely to the study of classical music, amazed by the variety, subtlety and richness of its repertoire.

In 2010, he entered the Conservatory of Bordeaux under the guidance of Olivier Chassain. During this period he would receive an intense formation in chamber music, always eager to participate in all types of agrupations, such as: the guitar quartet “Alienor Quartet” (which gave him a wonderful insight into the arrangement of orchestral works), several duos (with a cellist, a tenor and a guitar duo) or a Tango Quintet.

In 2016 he obtained his Diploma in Guitar Performance and Chamber Music with honors, praised and complimented by the members of the jury. 

Later in 2016 he moved to Seville (Spain) to continue his studies with Francisco Bernier at the Superior Conservatory of Music “Manuel Castillo”. Just after his arrival he was invited to participate as a guest artist in a CD recorded during the Seville Guitar Festival, along with figures such as Judicael Perroy, Zoran Dukic and Remi Jousselme.

In June 2021 he obtained his Bachelor’s licence with Francisco Bernier at the Superior Conservatory of Seville “Manuel Castillo”.

Currently, he’s doing a Master’s degree at the Superior National Conservatory of Paris. He’s an artist in residence at the Cité International des Arts (Paris).
