His father, Adolfo, worker in the shoe industry, as an amateur flutist he played in quartets which dug tango in vicinity. Two elder brothers played the violin: Adolfo Salvador Vicente (Fito) and Alberto Roque, the latter was more involved than the former and was linked to music for several years. It was his father who taught him his first music lessons, he started his first steps with violin too, but soon he switched to piano, although it took don Adolfo a certain time to buy the expensive instrument.
