Marco Caiazza was born in Naples in 1976 and began to study the guitar very early with his father. 
After winning many international competitions, he began an intense career as a concert artist, together with composing and arranging.
In 2016, the record label dotGuitar published his first CD, “Medallón Antiguo”, dedicated to the Paraguayan guitarist-composer Agustín Barrios-Mangoré. Specialised critics have soon successfully 
welcomed the CD.
Moreover, it won the prestigious prize “Golden Guitar for the best CD of the year” during the 22th  International Guitar Convention of Alessandria. The same CD has been published in 2017 by the magazine SEICORDE, for the collection “I Maestri  della Chitarra”. Considered  by  Susana Walton,  wife  of  the  famous  English  composer William Walton, “one of  the best performers of the Five Bagatelles for Guitar”, he took part in the recording of a documentary for the Walton Foundation. He recorded for Radio3 Rai and performed in important International Festivals.
He has also published for Ut Orpheus Editions, in two volumes, his revision of the complete Studies and Preludes by Barrios. In 2017, the record label PVR published his second CD, “Agustín Barrios - complete Studies and Preludes” (5 stars on the Magazines MUSICA and SEICORDE).
In 2019 he published, as a composer and performer, his third album, “Remembrance” (PVR), immediately welcomed with interest and enthusiasm by specialized critics (5 stars on the Magazines SEICORDE and GUITART).
In 2020 the record label PVR published the EP, "Moon", with his original compositions for piano and the CD, "Marco Caiazza plays Bach", with his transcriptions published by Volontè & Co. Editions (5 stars on the Magazine GUITART and Disc of the month on dotGUITAR).
In 2021 the scientific committee of the International Guitar Conference in Milan awarded him the prestigious "Golden Guitar for Didactics" award, in recognition of the numerous achievements of his students  in  the  international  field.  In  2023  he  released his  fifth  album  for  solo guitar, "Essential" (PVR), with music by Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Ponce, Tansman and Rodrigo.
