Maria Olaya is an exceptional Spanish Guitarist. She plays from her heart and you can feel the love radiatiing from her music. She is also a local guitar instructor.
As a child Maria was captivated by the sound of a Spanish guitar. In Colombian homes, in the Andes mountains, it was common to hear guitars and other traditional string instruments at every celebration. I fell in love with a very beautiful, artesian, truly hard to play Spanish Guitar.
I came to the United States in hopes of deepening my musical path. I finished a Master’s degree in guitar performance, and moved to Minneapolis, MN where I performed and taught for many years. Later I moved to Corvallis.
