Miguel De Hoyos

Classical/Latin/Flamenco Guitar

Miguel De Hoyos began guitar lessons at the age of 11 in his hometown of Monterrey, Mexico. At the age of 13, he entered Muevo Leon State University, studying toward a degree in classical guitar. Three years later, De Hoyos gave his first classical guitar recital, performing for over a thousand people as an opening to a university’s graduation ceremony. Around the same time, De Hoyos began studying the style of Paco De Lucia, a well-known Spanish guitarist who inspired De Hoyos to pursue new, different styles available to him as a budding guitarist.

By 1980, De Hoyos was recognized and selected as the number one choice guitarist by artists and singers visiting Monterrey, and for the next 16 years he performed with some of Mexico’s premier talents including Octavio Paz and Raul Velasco. He performed for First Lady, Diana Laura Colossio, as well as government officials, state governors, senators, and diplomats. In 1983, De Hoyos completed post-university studies in Advanced Classical Performing at Universidad Regiomontana.

In 1990, Miguel De Hoyos founded a band, La Guitarra Por El Mundo, comprised of three guitarists, bass, and percussion, and booked the group throughout Europe. The group performed 16 concerts in Romania—by invitation from the Romanian government—as part of a diplomatic cultural exchange program. In their time together, La Guitarra Por El Mundo released two recordings, La Guitarra Por El Mundo and String Five.

After relocating to Rosarito Beach, B.C.S, Mexico in 1996, De Hoyos began to be influenced by American pop music through Chet Atkins and Les Paul. Combining these new sounds with his traditional Mexican/Spanish guitar style, De Hoyos was soon recognized as an innovator with a unique approach to the guitar. This new music inspired De Hoyos to create two recordings, Interludio for solo guitar and Romance, which features De Hoyos’s vocal talent as well as his guitar playing. Between 1999 and 2003, De Hoyos recorded and released three more recordings, Sevilla Suite, Celebration (with original compositions), and Serenade Romantica, another guitar/vocal recording encouraged by his many fans in the area.

In 2007, De Hoyos met American violin sensation Alex DePue, and together they formed DePue/DeHoyos. The duo has performed throughout Mexico and the United States, and has released one recording, Underground Whispers. Their second recording, Twisted Strings is expected to be released later this year (2009).

With DePue, De Hoyos served as a staff member in 2009 for the National Oldtime Fiddle Contest, teaching master classes and performing for the students and NOTFC audiences. The duo will solo with the Ocean City Pops Orchestra in New Jersey this August. Immediately following that performance, De Hoyos travels to Ahrenshoop, Germany to kick off a 37-city concert tour throughout the country.

    Putting on my game face as I prepped to sing with the incredible Maestro Miguel "Miguelvis" DeHoyos this past Saturday. It was a small glimpse of what is to come. There are conversations of us recording a tribute album to our beloved Fiddler, and which pieces would be really fitting for such a project. Please keep up as we go, your support along the way will be GREATLY appreciated. This is so close to our hearts, and an inspiration to keep us both pressing on and stretching and growing in new ways. Working with a world class musician who also happens to be one of my husband's favorite people is truly an honor for me. Alex will always be with us both, absolutely no doubt about that. ❤️Now, on to finish my speech introducing Alex for his induction into the San Diego Music Hall of Fame this Friday, and practicing my small part in a musical tribute. ❤️ Love, Mrs. Fiddler #AlexDePue #Legendary #NeverForgotten #Beloved #MiguelDeHoyos ...

    Wow, a lot of similarities to Alex, he definitely used the violin to think things through. Love this. ❤️Albert Einstein, began his violin lessons at age 6. While doing poorly in school, Pauline Koch, his mother, consistently took him to weekly violin lessons and encouraged his daily practice.His favorite pieces of music were Mozart’s Violin Sonatas. Reportedly, he repeated K. 296 (in C) more than any other.This was also the first work I ever performed for a live audience, and thereby has a deep essence for me. That was at @meritmusic in the Chicago loop, and remains my favorite of Mozart’s sonatas, for any instrument.Einstein carried his violin with him wherever he traveled to lecture, because he also recognized and acknowledged how music sharpens the mind.His last girlfriend, Joanna Fantova wrote in her journal that Einstein would stay up late, playing his violin in the kitchen with his book of equations open on the table, and pencil in his bow hand.“He played, staring towards the ceiling. Then, suddenly in the middle of playing, he would shout excitedly, ‘I’ve got it!’” — Joanna Fantova#theviolindoctor #violin #violinplayer #einstein #alberteinstein #physicist #neildegrassetyson #violín #violinmusic #violinshow #violinsolo ...
