Free Guitar Music Julio SagrerasAbout Julio Sagreras, Guitarist and Composer

Julio Salvador Sagreras, born on November 22, 1879, was a renowned Argentine guitarist, teacher, and music composer.

He hailed from Buenos Aires, where his parents, both accomplished guitarists themselves, introduced him to the guitar at a very young age. His father, Gaspar Sagreras, played a significant role in his early musical education. By the tender age of six, Julio Sagreras was already performing in public concerts.

At the age of twelve, Sagreras began to explore other facets of music, diving into piano and composition studies. His talent was evident, and he rapidly excelled in his musical pursuits. By 1899, he had become a guitar professor at the prestigious Academia de Bellas Artes.

In Buenos Aires, Sagreras crossed paths with Francisco Nuñez, a publisher. This meeting proved to be fruitful, as Nuñez went on to publish a significant number of Sagreras’ compositions – a total of over one hundred pieces. Sagreras’ ambition led him to establish his own school, the Academia de Guitarra, in 1905.

Between 1900 and 1936, Sagreras was a frequent figure in concert halls and salons. His performances were not limited to live audiences; he also participated in radio broadcasts, sharing his music with a broader audience. His contributions to music, however, were not limited to his performances and compositions.  (continued below)

Other notable pieces include “Maria Luisa,” a beautiful mazurka, “El Zorzal,” an Estilo, and “Violetas,” a waltz. His work “El Colibri” stands out for its virtuosity, showcasing the depth of Sagreras’ talent.

These pieces, among others, reflect the breadth of Sagreras’ talent and his profound influence on the world of guitar music.

Hi, I’m Allen Mathews. 


I started as a folk guitarist, then fell in love with classical guitar in my 20’s. Despite a lot of practice and schooling, I still couldn’t get my music to flow well. I struggled with excess tension. My music sounded forced. And my hands and body were often sore. I got frustrated, and couldn’t see the way forward. Then, over the next decade, I studied with two other stellar teachers – one focused on the technical movements, and one on the musical (he was a concert pianist). In time, I came to discover a new set of formulas and movements. These brought new life and vitality to my practice. Now I help guitarists find more comfort and flow in their music, so they play more beautifully.
