Pablo Satek

Guitarist/educator Pablo Satek was born in San Fernando, BA, Argentina on April 18, 1973. He began taking guitar lessons at the age of sixteen while he was in high school. Inspired by the Beatles, he started his first band which played rock n’ roll and blues. After a while he discovered jazz; his musical perspective was altered through listening to Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane, and he began to focus on jazz studies. Among his teachers were Sacri Delfino, Luís Dagostino, Marcelo Kitai, Ernesto Jodos, and Pino Marrone.

In 1999 Pablo completed a degree in music at the I.T.M.C., a branch of the Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT) in Los Angeles. In Argentina, he also participated in clinics and workshops with Scott Henderson, Sid Jacobs, Armand Sabal-Lecco (Paul Simon’s bassist), John Stowell, and Robben Ford. In 2000 he took lessons with Joe Diorio in Los Angeles, and in 2001 he also studied with another great jazz guitar player, John Abercrombie in New York.
