Brian Hayes received his first acoustic guitar at age 14. He purchased an electric guitar shortly thereafter and began developing his skills through learning music by ear, gaining recognition from fellow guitar players throughout the greater Orlando area.
Brian enrolled at Seminole State College as a classical guitar major with a piano minor. He studied with flamenco guitarist Juan Serrano and performed as part of a Flamenco/Latin-Jazz guitar duo. Today, he performs at various special events in Central Florida, utilizing his training by adapting pieces written for other instruments into his own solo guitar arrangements.
