Rodrigo Galavis is a 14 yea old guitarist from New Canaan, Connecticut. Rodrigo began playing guitar at the age of 9.

Rodrigo started playing the drums at the age of 7 years old. When he was 9 years old he started to play the guitar. However, he still considered himself a drummer first until he was around 13 years old. That’s when he decided he loved the guitar above any of the other instruments.
