Francisco Rojas is a Columbus native, growing up in Upper Arlington, OH. He began playing guitar at the age of 13, attending the Fort Hayes Vocational Music program in his final year of high school, and going on to study music in college. In 2009, he earned his Bachelor of Arts from Bowling Green State University, majoring in Music History, with a focus on jazz and classical guitar, also minoring in sociology.

Francisco has since managed a career as a solo-acoustic guitarist & singer, band front-man, lead-guitarist/back-up vocalist, and teacher. He has been playing professionally for over 15 years and has been teaching for over 10 years.

β€œArt is the way to the absolute and to the essence of human life. The aim of art is not the one-sided promotion of spirit, soul and senses, but the opening of all human capacities – thought, feeling, will – to the life rhythm of the world of nature. So will the voiceless voice be heard and the self be brought into harmony with it. Artistic skill, therefore, does not mean artistic perfection. It remains rather a continuing medium or reflection of some step in psychic development, the perfection of which is not to be found in shape and form, but must radiate from the human soul.”
