Raul Midón stated: "I just need to say - I learned so much being here... And I was able to take what I learned and make it work. Everywhere in the world, I have met people who came to the University of Miami in my industry.  Thank you for having me here and letting me come to this distinguished place"

He began playing drums early in his childhood, before switching to guitar and experimenting with flamenco, jazz, and classical styles on his chosen instrument. Whle attending Frost to pursue a degree in Jazz Performance he moonlighted as a background vocalist for Latin pop recording sessions.  Along with releasing ten studio albums as a solo artist, he has collaborated with such heroes as Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder and Bill Withers, and contributed on recordings by Queen Latifah, Snoop Dogg and the soundtrack to Spike Lee's "She Hate Me."
