While he is primarily a classical guitarist, Dr. Cahueque also plays regularly in the pit band for the Claremont High School summer musical theater series. Dr. Cahueque also enjoys singing.

He was also recently invited to sing with the Cal Poly Pomona Chamber Singers and the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra in a community outreach concert in Pomona.
In addition to teaching at Chapman, Dr. Cahueque is on the music faculties at Cal Poly Pomona and Mt. San Antonio Community College. He is also on the Board of Directors, serving as treasurer, for the Orange County Guitar Circle.
