Jose Luis has been performing for over thirty years and is highly regarded as a gifted harpist by his peers. Jose Luis is the only harpist to play both the classic concert harp and the Latin lever harp; which requires him to pluck the strings with two different techniques; the first uses his fingertips and the second his nails.
Jose Luis first fell in love with the sound of the harp and began studying in his early teens with Maestro Jose Serrano in Puerto Rico. He later visited Los Angeles to take private lessons with the world-renowned harpist and composer Alfredo Rolando Ortiz.
