Vítor Melo is a Brazilian multi-instrumentalist, singer and composer based in Southern California. He started playing the guitar at the age of nine, influenced by his father, who had worked with music and taught his first chords. From the very beginning, Vítor was in contact with a broad variety of music styles, which made him develop into a highly versatile musician. He has been performing and working in different music groups and as a solo artist since his early teenage years. After being awarded scholarships in three different colleges, he moved to the United States to attend the Los Angeles College of Music Guitar Program. He graduated with the highest honors in the program and was hired to work and represent the Guitar Department while still a student. Vítor is a prolific musician and is part of several projects that range from upbeat funk rock to virtuosic jazz fusion. He performs all over Los Angeles on a weekly basis on original projects or as a sideman and session musician. Along with performing, he also has many years of teaching experience, having worked with students of all ages and levels.
