"Juan es un compositor talentosísimo, una persona jovial, confiable y con los sentimientos a flor de piel, todo esto reflejado en su música. Cada obra que he escuchado y que he tenido el privilegio de interpretar es maravillosa, requiere de mucho estudio y técnica, pero más que todo amor y dedicación y eso te hace disfrutarla aún más."
Paula Burgos
"Juan Carlos’s music is vibrant, passionate and colorful. I have had the privilege of playing several of his works and premiering a couple and they are truly delightful. If you have not experienced his music yet, you should!"
Dr. Rebeca Ordóñez Rodriguez
