Meet Max Padron in Coconut Grove

Today we’d like to introduce you to Max Padron.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
My name is Max Padron I’m a professional guitarist with more than 20 years of experience in music. I started at five playing the piano and till I was 13 when I started discovering rock music and found an interest in playing guitar. My interest quickly became my passion and love. The first time I played guitar was because a friend of mine lend an old rusty guitar and I started to learn by myself. I found a way to learn the notes and chords by listening to my favorite songs. Little by little I felt more confident and I started playing live at the age of 16 as a rock guitar player and haven’t stopped till now.

At the age of 20, I started the music conservatory and taking private lessons to get a more precise and professional knowledge. At the same time that I started my band “Dia Sin Motivo” that became popular in Venezuela and took us to the radio. We also won several “Battle of the Bands”.

Later on from my 27 years old till now I started to play and record with Venezuela’s top artists such as “Chino y Nacho” , “Oscarcito”, “Hany Kauam”, “Kiara”, “Jesús y Yorkie”, etc, And also teached guitar as well as today that I teach at one of Miami’s top music academy’s: Let It Beat! Music Academy with and for Grammy winning artists and producers.

Nowadays with 33 years old, I live in Miami and work as a session guitarist, playing on top venues such as the Faena Hotel – Living Room with the “Usual Suspects”, “Keba”, “Jackie Mendez”, etc. I also appeared on Tv shows such as “The George Harris Show” with “Elena Rose”, and in Telemundo with “Yanelisa”. Already living in the USA l was able to play with various legendary Venezuelan Artist such as: “Elisa Regó”, “Desorden Publicó”, “Zapato 3”, “Sentimiento Muerto”.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I’ve been playing for around 20 years now so it hasn’t been a smooth ride. Lots of challenges musically, personally, as a professional musician. Moving into a new country and city and being able to play and work with the top artists, producers and musicians of the Latin music scene has blown my mind and it wasn’t easy to get there, and I’m still working hard to be a better professional and a better musician to keep climbing up the latter.

We’d love to hear more about your work.
I’m a Session Musician, specializing in the Guitar. I play and record for top artists and bands from the Miami or South Florida music scene. I’m also a music instructor at one of Miami’s top music academy Let It Beat! Music Academy. Always putting lots of passion and love into my work and always delivering the best product.

What’s your outlook for the industry in our city?
Miami has an incredible and very diverse music scene. A great place to begin anyone’s musical journey. Whether you want to be a professional musician or just doing it as a hobby, Miami is a perfect place to do it.
