Gustavo has a particular interest in chamber music, and his chamber philosophies stem from extensive music study with the Empire Brass Quintet founding member Sam Pilafian. He continues to make chamber music a central focus of his creative activity, most notably with WWU faculty wind quintet "Fifth Inversion" and WWU faculty brass trio "Trinsic Brass". Gustavo holds a Bachelor of Music from New Mexico State University as well as a Master of Music and a Doctor of Musical Arts in horn performance from Arizona State University.
