David Paul
Hello everyone, my name is David Paul Torres and welcome again to my website. I'm a Classical and Electric Guitarist from Los Angeles and I am currently attending Cal State Los Angeles for my B.A. in music theory and performance. I've been playing guitar since the age of 18 and I've fallen in  love to the point where I've decided to make a career in music. Playing multiple styles of music, has expanded my musical knowledge and technical facillities that allow me to express myself on the insturment and deliver the exact messages that I wish to my audience which is the goal of every musician. Playing contrasting styles of JS Bach to Ozzy Osbourne, Francisco Tarrega to Metallica has given me the versatility to touch many people in a given situation through the playing of these different styles of music. Music to me is a sacred form of expression that allows us to reach deep within our souls and commnicate with one another through vibration of sound waves that are able to fill the void when words alone can not express. As a musician, I feel responsible to use this power to uplift and encourage others and teach them how to channel it or to be an extension of their voice. I've performed at many venues throughout California and have much stage experience. I've done weddings, social events, parties, private gatherings, live stage performances, auditions and public playing.

In between giving lessons and going to school, I'm also in a heavy metal band from Boyle Heights named Ophiuchus. Together, we are competition winners at the World Famous Whisky A-Go-Go and had the pleasure of opening up for the Rockstar Mayhem Festival in 2014. We played in front of approximately 7-10k people which was the largest crowd for an opening band to date. We are now currently working on new music.
